    I found this one to be very good but a tad boring. It had all the notes I could think of if I had to describe the general concept of whisky to a total stranger, but nothing truly unique. It’s an issue I have with a lot of these single malts mainly used for blending. Still a very enjoyable sipper though.Tasted in the BTC 2017
    • Nose
      Stone fruits. Wood oils. Carbolic soap. Ashy yet not smoky. Fine dust. Honey flavoured sweets. Sultanas.
    • Taste
      Malt. Bitter wood. Seville oranges. Sour porridge. A bit hot. Copper. Green peppers.
    • Finish
      Long. Slightly bitter. Light wood. Wood oils. Hay. White tea.

    My first Braeval. At the moment the highest rated Braeval on WB. Tasted a sample on day ten of the US Blind Tasting Competition 2017. My guess was a Clynelish 18-yo @ 51%.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, fudge, peach, apricot, honey, hay
    • Taste
      Sweet vanilla, oily peach, salt
    • Finish
      Fudge fades, some vanilla, malty, salty

  6. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good, full-bodied and rich Braeval, showing that this distillery produces whisky that's not just suitable for the big Chivas blends, but that it can also be a very good single malt.
    • Nose
      Some raspberries, accompanied by a nice waxiness, vanilla custard and porridge. Yellow fruits (like ripe banana), as well as some white grapes and a touch of ozone.

    • Finish
      Spicy and warming. Finally some honey. Medium in length.

  7. KayMeertens did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasted as part of the Blind Tasting Competition 2017. My guess was Longmorn.
    • Nose
      Pear, vanilla pudding, pastry, banana and peach. Later more dough. Eventually a whiff of grapefruit.
    • Taste
      Vanilla pudding, pear, peach, pastry, banana and a bit of grass. 
    • Finish
      Pear, vanilla pudding, pastry, caramel, grapefruit and a little nuttiness.
