Edition Spirits Braes of Glenlivet Tasting Notes

Posted: June 11, 2017 in Braes of Glenlivet, Uncategorized

Edition Spirits ‘The First Editions’ Braes of Glenlivet 1993? (24 year old) 54.9%

Refill Bourbon Hogshead?/ Code: EDI0216/ Dist: 1993? Btl: 2017/ Tasted: Mar 2017

A dusty and mature nose with a profusion of very herbal accented baked fruit, marzipan and gently oxidised apricot. Pleasantly balanced by a fresh sprit character. With time hints of malt, honey, loam and damp wood notes appear.

Mature, malty and oily on the palate with old wood spice, herbs, manure, barley, straw and apricot. A hot on the middle and finish with a touch of baked, herbal fruit, honey and minerals. Lovely liquorice and herbal finish, but overall it feels a little too old.
