A commemoration of Brora’s 200th Anniversary, this rare release from our diminishing reserves offers our connoisseurs a glimpse of our past, a taste from a moment in time. A golden age at Brora; the Age of Peat.
Nestled on the North East coast of Scotland, Brora is an iconic malt distillery with an avid cult following. Its reputation as a truly special Single Malt Scotch is due to its supreme quality and uniquely rich and peaty flavour profile, combined with its increasing scarcity, having ceased production in 1983 becoming a ‘ghost’ distillery.
This edition of Brora is a fine, elegant old coastal malt with rich fruit sweetness and compelling smokiness, held in perfect balance and a vibrancy remarkable for its age.

Clear amber. Fine long beading. Good viscosity.
Cautious, with slight pickle at first, then sweet, smoky- peat wafts of treacle toffee, smoke with iodine. Rich, sweet fruit. Ripe figs. Raisins. Fire and brimstone. With water, hessian sacking, fine tweed, notes of the warehouse; all lightly harmonious, with elements of land, sea and sky.
An exquisitely smooth, lightly waxy texture and a powerful, rich, darkly sweet, savoury then finally smoky taste, with great balance, length and persistence. Richly winey and fruity throughout, with dried figs and dates. Spiciness and growing smoky warmth; white pepper.
Best straight but also deliciously drinkable with a dash of water, which adds to the sweetness and brings up a minty note; suggesting mint imperials, whilst dialling back the darker character. All this is still underpinned by a smokiness that is also held more in check but still very much present.
Long, rich and sweetly warming, with more white pepper, subsiding to leave a lightly smoky aftertaste. With water, much sweeter and more mint-cool, and at the very end lightly drying.
