Alexander Murray Braes of Glenlivet 1994 21 Year

I haven’t had much from Braeval but I was curious to try this indie bottling from Total Wine. I’ve now had it for years and finally got through it.


Alexander Murray Braes of Glenlivet 1994 21 Year

Age: 21 years

Proof: 86

Cask Type: Ex-bourbon


Notes: Easy nose with no proof sting and a bit of sweetness. Simple and sweet on the palate with pear and vanilla notes. A bit of oak and spice but mostly the fruit and vanilla on the short, clean finish. The anemic proof shows on the mouthfeel and .

Stars: 0 - Poor to Fine: I would not specifically choose to drink this over other readily available options


While this was enjoyable it was unremarkable. A more active barrel, higher proof or less filtration may have helped make this more interesting.


TL;DR: Fine but nothing to write home about.
