Braes Of Glenlivet "by Secret Speyside" Vintage 1990 32 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky


93.6 Proof, 700 ml, first fill American Oak barrels

This 1990 Braes of Glenlivet vintage has been matured in first fill American oak barrels, bottled at cask strength and without chill-filtration. Sweet on the nose, with aromas of apricot, coconut and apple crumble. On the palate, flavour notes of pineapple, peach and whipped cream are complemented by notes of crystallized ginger. The finish is sweet and creamy.

Among the hills of Banffshire in Speyside, along winding single track roads, lies a distillery more remote than most. One of the highest distilleries in Speyside, Braeval sits at 356m above sea level.​ Crafted among these peaks, away from the well-trodden path, this distillery is operated by a Lone Distiller. ​Made with the purest water from the Preenie well, two miles deep in the Braes hill​.​ The unique, incredibly tall stills of Braeval, capture only the most delicate flavours, giving this liquid its distinctive notes of tropical fruits.

"Braes of Glenlivet" is the former name of the Braeval distillery, a Scotch whisky distillery in Chapeltown, Banffshire, Scotland. The distillery was founded in 1973 by the Chivas and Glenlivet Group, and is located in the Livet Glen's pastures in Speyside. In 2001, Pernod Ricard bought the distillery and mothballed it in 2002, but it is now in full production. The distillery has a pagoda roof, and is one of the first distilleries in Scotland to be completely automated.
