A wonderfully old 1989 vintage Speyside single malt, from the what is now known as the Braeval Distillery! Braeval was formerly known as Braes of Glenlivet, though the name was changed in 1994, five years after this whisky was distilled. After 30 years in a single cask, the Speysider was bottled by Hunter Laing for the Old & Rare Platinum selection, with 236 bottles at cask strength, a warming 54.7% ABV.
Nose: This medium gold whisky has a faintly nutty nose, with notes of peach, strawberry and Turkish bazaar.
Palate: The palate is rich and creamy with milk chocolate, stewed fruits, and a pleasant maltiness.
Finish: The finish is long and lingering, with notes of dark fruit and sandalwood.
