Braes of Glenlivet 30yo Bottling Note

Here we've got a 30 year old single malt Scotch whisky from the Braes of Glenlivet Distillery (these days known as Braeval, mind) bottled up as part of the delightful Derestricted range! Not only will you be getting some brilliant, well-aged single malt here, you'll also be getting your mitts on some knowledge, too! Y'see, that label is covered in what might be considered an overwhelming array of facts and figures about the distillery. Still shape, washback type, heat source, that type of stuff. Even if you're a Braeval boffin, we reckon there will be a few things on here that would be news to you...

Braes of Glenlivet 30 Year Old - Derestricted Reviews

A rich delightful dram

Although the label provides considerable detail about the distillery, it doesn't say anything about the cask that produced this whisky (nor do the tasting notes). There is no doubt, however, that this whisky was aged in a bourbon cask. Although it's less clear whether the cask was first-fill or refill (I'd suggest refill), it's clear that there's a lot of cask influence (although not too much), not surprising for 30 years. The result is a rich complex harmony between the Braes spirit and the cask that is a pleasure without water at 56 ABV. On the nose and especially the palate, the dram exhibits a big rich warm somewhat dark character that is complemented by a variety of bright notes that unfold over time, including floral fragrance, citrus, and ginger. A truly wonderful beautiful and long dram that is quite drinkable and moreish.
