Braes of Glenlivet 1975
A 1975 vintage from the now recently reopened Braeval distillery. This is a rarer bottling under the original 'Braes of Glenlivet' name, the Glenlivet suffix was dropped in 1994.
The nose is quite fragrant with a little barley and hay. Delicate flowers and orange with flourishes of heather roots. The palate is dry and quite light. Toasty oak spices and sugared barley with a hint of almond sweetness. A little vanilla spice develops. The finish is of medium length with lots of cereal and malted barley and sugared mix peel.
