Braeval 1998/2011 – Signatory Vintage

Rating: 6 out of 10 (Something special!)

Nose: Wow! This is extremely funky. Banana, vanilla. Also overripe banana, banana candy and mini-banana’s. Also some banana. And smoke. Smoked banana custard. A bit one-dimensional.
Mouth: creamy and very rich. Again, lot’s of banana and vanilla notes, and again pretty one dimensional.
Finish: Pretty long more of the same, and a nice charry smokey note.

This one is difficult: this is so freaky and funky that even my grandmother could tell there’s banana, vanilla and smoke in there. Not great as single malt, but it scores high on the likability scale because of it’s quirkiness.
