Distilled at The Braeval Distillery in June 1998. Bottled in Glasgow in September 2015. Aged 17 years in Sherry Hogshead. Un-chill filtered, no artificial colouring. At natural cask strength of 58.5% Alc/vol.
The distillery is situated 9 miles south west of Dufftown. Seagram Distillers Plc opened it in 1973. At that time Seagram were still to take over the Glenlivet Distillery hence the use of “Braes” in their name. To avoid confusion with “The Glenlivet” the distillery name was changed in 1994 to Braeval , the name of the croft on which the distillery was built.
It is a modern distillery with a capacity of over five million litres of alcohol a year and was built to be operated by just one man. As a main component in the Seagram blends, with the bulk of the production destined for use in the Passport and 100 Pipers blends. This is an excellent malt and often out scores its sister distillery, Allt A Bhainne. No distillery bottlings at this time. Only available through Independent Bottlers. Well worth sourcing. Will not disappoint.
Golden mahogany colour with a spicy and gingery nose. Soft creamy palate with an orange lemon finish.
