    CA for Sauternes finishing!
    a divine surprise.
    • Nose
      fresh and cooked fruit, vanilla, obvious oak and malt
      Sweet fruit, sweet honey, caramelized, we smell sugar, as on exotic fruits when they start to grow too much!
    • Taste
      fruit stewed and annealed, sweetness of the fruits, the scent that diffuses gently,
      the sweet side leaves more beautiful, a little sweet, a little vanilla lemon,
      cooked almonds suggesting a very slight bitterness
      a little white chocolate in return and fine spices and the tenacious woody that enhances the flavors!
    • Finish
      rather long, on the woody, the creamy sweet caramel and chocolate, then the intense fruit

    Braeval at his best ?
    • Nose
      bourbony  notes and overripe fruit.
    • Taste
      For me confused nose: remains bipolar, with intense wine, roast barley, with spices and cocoa.
    • Finish
      very long, sultana sweetness,cocoa.

    Good and pleasant whisky worth trying.
    • Nose
      Warming with obvious notes of alcohol, dark honey and toffee aromas at first nosing. Sweet wine aroma is obvious, when nosing it more from the distance. Notes of candy floss and candy apple dominate, when you are getting closer. But be careful - when you get too close the alcohol will burn your nose. Becomes oaky after some time.

      Inviting - the smell is enticing you to slurp.
    • Taste
      Powerful start, spirity, warming from deep inside. Rolls very nicely over the tongue and has kept its toffee sweetness. Additional notes of raspberries and oak. Quite pleasant. 
    • Finish
      Long and oaky.
