About Braes of Glenlivet 16 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Cadenhead Bottling)
Braes of Glenlivet 16 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Cadenhead Bottling) is made exclusively from malted barley, which was milled and mashed before being fermented in the distillery's original washbacks. Following fermentation, the wash was distilled twice: first through Braeval's copper-pot wash still and then again through its copper-pot spirit still.
Braes of Glenlivet 16 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Cadenhead Bottling) was distilled in 1997 and matured in Cask #126681 for 16 years. In 2013, the whisky was bottled at cask strength.
The whisky has an aroma of mint, tarragon, creamy vanilla and a hint of coffee beans. Notes of brown sugar, milk chocolate, espresso and eucalyptus dominate the palate, and lead to a finish accented by touches of red apples, cinnamon and banana.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
