Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Bottled by: Douglas Laing 70cl / 48.4%
A 12-year-old Braeval 2009 bottled in 2021 by Douglas Laing for their Old Particular series. Braeval is a Chivas Brothers (Pernod Ricard) distillery also frequently bottled as Braes of Glenlivet. Official bottlings of Braeval are almost non-existent due to the distillery's importance for Chivas's blends.
This particular Braeval 2009 was bottled by Douglas Laing in November 2021 from a single refill sherry butt cask #DL15378 which yielded a very impressive 896 bottles of 12-year-old single malt at the Old Particular standard strength of 48.4%.
