Braes of Glenlivet 30 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Signatory Bottling)
Only 535 bottles of this single malt Scotch whisky, which was aged for over three decades, were ever produced.
Founded in 1973, the Braeval Distillery is situated 1,100 feet above sea level, making it the highest distillery in all of Scotland. The distillery was originally named Braes of Glenlivet, but eventually changed its name to avoid confusion with the Glenlivet Distillery. For nearly four decades, the distillery has been producing single malt whiskies that are best known for their starring roles in renowned blended Scotch whiskies, including Chivas Regal and Passport. To date, the distillery has never released an official bottling of single malt whisky. Braes of Glenlivet 30 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Signatory Bottling) was one of the first batches of whisky ever distilled at the Braeval Distillery. The whisky was 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 30 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Signatory Bottling) was distilled on February 7, 1974 and matured for over 11,000 days in a traditional oak cask (Cask #550). On August 13, 2004 — over three decades after its initial distillation — the whisky was bottled at cask strength. The whisky has a golden honey color, along with an aroma of creamy vanilla, tropical fruits and cloves. The aroma gives way to notes of cinnamon, violet, lemon meringue pie and toffee, which ultimately leads to a long, caramel finish with just a touch of spice. Only 535 bottles of this single malt whisky were ever produced. Pick one up today!
