Whiskybroker Braes of Glenlivet 23yo

Don't do notes very often but sharing a dram with a partner who possesses a very advanced sensory system can see vague ideas verbalised in a semi-coherent way. Here goes...

Braes of Glenlivet (Braeval), Single-cask 23 years old, 54.2%, Hogshead 1074 (Whiskybroker)

Tasted neat
Nose: Lovely! Weetabix, lemon and kiwi with cut grass
Palate: rice-pudding with a kind of citrusy shoe-polish taste and texture or maybe a lemony Cowans' Highland toffee? Quite classy.
Finish: fades slowly with some salt and dark fruits - blueberries, prunes?

One to sit and savour. Superb value too. What is there not to like?

Currently available from Whiskybroker for £44.
