    [March, 2017]  There are really nice people working at Braeval and despite all of today's highly efficient and time-pressured processes they took some time to answer my questions when I showed up at this distillery two years ago (twenty years ago this was standard with almost all distilleries, today the HQ guys try to eliminate all customer contacts at not-open-to-the-public distilleries...).  But nevertheless, simply try if you dare and ask them on the spot - usually they appreciate it very much if someone cares about what they are doing all-day long....

    I tasted quite some Braeval or Braes of Glenlivet over the last 20 years but this is one of the best.  It has a complex yet powerful profile that is really interesting, esp. in the nose.  On the palate and during the finish this is a complex dram too, based on sweet barley notes and exotic as well as home-grown fruits and spices.  Yes, there are some strange flavours that some people would call off-notes and if they feel so, this is absolutely okay.  But to me these notes are rather interesting and add some unusual aromas to the profile that are really amazing to discover.  Find it out yourself, if you are interested!

    Ignoring the Madeira Hart Bros. edition this is the best Braeval I have tasted so far...
