A 13-year-old Braeval 2009 bottled in 2022 without colouring or chill filtration by Alistair Walker Whisky Co. for Batch 11 of the Infrequent Flyers series.

Braeval, also sometimes known as Braes of Glenlivet, was built in the early 1970s by Chivas Brothers and produces over 4 million litres of spirit per annum, the vast majority of which goes into owner Pernod Ricard's blends.

This 2009 Braeval 13-year-old was finished in a hogshead cask that previously was home to the Italian red wine Valpolicella and yielded 318 bottles at an impressive 62.5%.

Tasting Notes

Official Tasting Notes

Colour: Rich amber.

Very aromatic. Deep, red wine notes - red berries, marmalade and rosehips. A slight (and pleasant) savoury note can be found lurking side-stage.

Great texture - thick and viscous. The "big red" influence from the Valpolicella cask is apparent, definitely one for wine lovers; super fruity, with vibrant Victoria plums and cranberries, which linger (naturally). Notes of crushed ginger and black pepper make a late cameo.

Lovely whisky that is punching above it's weight

This is a little gem of a whisky, and I am assuming it gets a lot of it's lovely depth and sweetness from the deep red Valpolicella it grew up in. It has a real nice depth to it with lots of sweet ripe fruits and for me the nose has an air of opal fruits to it. The 62.5% is never evident as it is a very smooth and moreish dram!

A quick shout out to the guys at Whisky-Online - it was great meeting you and really enjoyed our chat.
