Description

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : or à reflets vert.
  • Nose : gourmand, fin. L’amande verte, la noix et le trèfle évoluent sur une note aquatique (nénuphar). Puis, il devient vanillé, laiteux (coco) et épicé (badiane, muscade). L’influence du vieillissement en fût de bourbon fait ressortir du menthol, de l’eucalyptus, du café crème et des agrumes (bergamote).
  • Palate : sa vivacité et son dynamisme sont chargés de sel et de foin coupé. Un tapis de mousse tapisse le milieu de bouche avant qu’elle ne devienne fruitée (poire, pomme) et citronnée. De plus en plus tertiaire et automnale avec ses notes de marron, de cuir et de réglisse.
  • Overall : nette, volontaire. Son caractère mentholé se révèle même médicinal (moutarde, baume du tigre). S’apaisant avec douceur sur du miel d’acacia et sur du toffee, elle est ponctuée de réglisse verte. Le verre vide est cristallin et évoque des alcools blancs (kirsch, mirabelle).
The brand

The brand

Built in 1973 by the Chivas Brothers group, Braeval was originally called Braes of Glenlivet. In 1996 it changed its name in order to avoid confusion with the Glenlivet distillery owned by the same group. Almost 100% of its production is used for blends including Chivas Regal.

Merchant

Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

The Un-Chillfiltered Collection enables enthusiasts to enjoy the flavour of whisky that has not undergone chill filtering. Like cognac, armagnac and other fine spirits, most whiskies today are chill filtered. The whiskies in this range have an appearance and aromatic range that is much more faithful to the original products. Richer, oilier, more aromatic and distinctive, these whiskies are from single casks or are a blend of two or three casks at the most. They offer the ultimate authentic taste experience!
