Braes of Glenlivet 25 Year Old, 48%Braes of Glenlivet
A wonderful expression from the stills at Braeval, bottled under the old name of Braes of Glenlivet which was changed in 1994. This release makes up part of the Secret Speyside collection, which illuminates some of the lesser explored distilleries in the Speyside region. This whisky was laid down in 1994 in a first fill American oak barrel, and aged for a full quarter of a century.
Tropical fruits, marmalade and apricot on the nose leads to a sweet and elegant palate, with creamy fudge and toasted coconut. The finish is exceptionally smooth, with subtly drying oak complimenting those juicy fruits. The American oak shines through beautifully without overpowering this fragrant spirit.
An absolute winner from this lesser known distillery - that's going in our hidden gems collection!
