BRAEVAL (Braes of Glenlivit) 92/100

.... this speysider is 350 meters above sea level, which makes it the highest distillery in Scotland, and perhaps this proximity to heaven goes some way to explaining why this is such bloody-magnificent stuff !
rarely is a whisky so light, so intense,
rarely is a whisky so gentle, so powerful,
rarely is a whisky so simply, complex !
...... not for novices, the sophistication needs to be explored with a map! and an old re-fill Heaven Hill bourbon cask was made for this signature whisky.
Mainly available as a 'Deerstalker' 10 y.o.
but sparkles as a Signatory cask 30 y.o. 97/100

"Occasionally great whisky comes along, and one knows it when, over time, the Malt leaves your senses behind on it's cascading journey"
