    For a corkage fee you can now bring your own bottles into the SMWS - fair play. To celebrate his birthday, a kind gentleman bought along this Braeval - a rarity for the SMWS and further afield. The last SMWS release was in 2007 I believe.

    N: Ooh yeah! With moderate old skool-styley depth, we’ve notes of fruity grasses and toffee in a hessian sack. In the same vein as Glenlivet or Balvenie from an earlier era.
    T: Savoury grassy toffee at first, drying and turning a little bitter before moving towards the candy sweets and chocolate icecream. Holds a lovely dry-ness.
    F: Short but with mild/light candy fruit lingerings.
    C: Lovely surprise. Impressive depth/maturity for a 12yo. Something happened to whisky in the mid-late 2000’s when this style slowly but surely became less prevalent.Scores a B
