An exciting Brora that promises more "smoke, ash and peat" than recent releases, this 38 year old single malt from was distilled back in 1977. Matured in American oak hogshead and refill European oak butts, 2,984 bottles have been produced this year. It's uncertain how many more of these releases we'll have to enjoy, with this fantastic distillery having sadly closed back in 1983.
Subtle smoke slowly builds with initial oiliness and farmyard character too. Honeyed ash develops with fresh lemon peels.
Smoke is established now, offering a nutty edge, but doesn't take over, instead the evocative citrus becomes the star of the show. Lemon peel (think fresh from a canelle cutter) moving toward grapefruit on the late palate. First class.
Hints of the coast now, with more grapefruit combining with sea salt and lingering spice.
