An annual crowd-pleaser, Brora tends to be a muscular, sooty brute of a whisky, and we love it. 2011's Special Releases sees the launch of a 32 year old Brora, aged in refill American and European oak casks. A release of 1,404 bottles worldwide.
Please note: The display box does have a few minor scuff marks, but this is still an incredibly handsome Brora.
Nose: Quite a closed nose for a Brora, with crystallised fruits, quince and reserved sootiness. There’s not a whole lot going on actually.
Palate: Spicy, with chocolate-covered honeycomb (ok, Crunchie bars), pine oil, hickory and rosemary smoke (that sounds like a rather specific tasting note, and it’ll make a lot of sense come the release of a fascinating little treat from Professor Cornelius Ampleforth!).Maybe some apple peel too.
Finish: Sweet and smoky, wood ash, pepper and aniseed on the tail.
Overall: Not the usual bruiser you expect from Brora, but a very fine whisky nonetheless.

Complex and long; malty with smoke at the back; wood for sure (it's 32 years!) but not too oaked; so many tastes and it evolves in the glass over time... Probably the finest whisky I have tried. A must - IF you have the dosh to spare - and if you do, drink it quick because it'll be worth even more in a couple of years and then it'll be too expensive to drink...
