Braeval 12YO '01 Bottling Note
Part of the Hepburn's Choice range from Langside Distillers, which highlights the wonderful unique characteristics of Scotland's whisky regions and distilleries using single cask expressions bottled at 46% abv with no colouring. This 12 year old Braeval from Speyside is an excellent addition to the collection. 807 bottles were produced.
A Very Poor Choice!
I really can't explain the rating of R.Swinhoe. The Braeval is delicate, sweet, lightly sherried, nutty and very clean...Good choice!

This was a real disappointment after high expectations. It was thin, spirity and showing no character of the distillery at all. Hard to know if this was just a rogue cask or an indication of all Hepburn's bottlings. There are very much better Braevals than this very poor bottle out there.
