Douglas McGibbon Braeval Tasting Notes

Posted: September 9, 2011 in Braeval, Scotch Whisky A-G

Douglas McGibbon Provenance Braeval 1999 (11 year old) 46%

Bourbon/ Code: PRV0730/ Dist: Sept 1999 Btl: Sept 2011/ Tasted: Sept 2011

A slightly honeyed nose with plenty of toffee’d/ caramel oak and hints of high toned floral notes and a touch of cereal. The palate is relatively sweet with an abundance of pure, liquid caramel, hints of peppery spices, youthful cereal and a touch of honey. Pleasant if rather non descript.

Douglas McGibbon Provenance Braeval 2000(?) (12 year old) 46%

Bourbon/ Code: PRV1024/ Dist: 2000(?) Btl: July 2013/ Tasted: Aug 2013

A fresh and slightly grassy nose with citrus, barley, earth and malt, along with a touch of boiled sweets, honey and light vanilla. 

The palate is quite earthy and darker than the nose would suggest with baked fruit and malt. Robust and slightly toffee’d with barley and a slightly grassy and honeyed finish.
