Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : jaune doré soutenu.
  • Nose : élégant, racé. Les fleurs capiteuses (genêt, mimosa), la réglisse verte, la camomille, la marjolaine, la fumée, la racine de gentiane, les agrumes confits (citron, pamplemousse), la coriandre, le gingembre, les fruits secs (noix, amande) … la cire d’abeille, la tourbe grasse, le clou de girofle, l’orge verte, en cours de maltage, en cours de séchage, les cendres, l’iode, le sel, les coquillages… en un mot : Brora.
  • Palate : riche, concentrée. Tonique, elle dévoile ses accents marins, tourbés, fruités et fumés avec beaucoup de délicatesse et de générosité. Elle se resserre en milieu de bouche sur les épices (poivre, muscade), les agrumes (citron vert) et le gingembre puis évolue sur la noix verte et le curry. Sèche, elle rappelle un vin de voile du Jura.
  • Overall : longue, capiteuse. Saturée par la fumée de tourbe, elle révèle également des notes de pissenlit et de miel d’acacia. Herbacée (foin coupé), terreuse (humus, sable), elle devient de plus en plus médicinale (camphre, baume). En rétro olfaction : du tabac frais, de la paille et des fruits mûrs (mirabelle, prune).
The brand

The brand

Built in 1819 by the Marchioness of Stafford, the Brora distillery is known for its peated whisky, similar to the Isle of Islay style. Following an unexpected drought on the Isle of Islay in the summer of 1969, a shortage of peated whisky slowed down the production of blended whisky for a number of distilleries. So Brora decided to supply the distilleries in question with their quality peated whisky whose production costs were lower than those from the Islay distilleries. In the eighties overproduction lead to the permanent closure of some thirty Scottish distilleries including Brora. In 2014 the one-off sale of 160 official-version bottles of a 40 year-old, 59.1% Brora provided a unique opportunity to preserve a rare testimony of one of the legendary ‘lost distilleries’

Merchant

One man is behind this young German retailer - Carsten Ehrlich - a man who is similar to his bottlings, which are straightforward with precise and refined flavours. Various “joint-bottlings” resulted from our meeting with him. The first, Bunnahabhain 1975, which is aged in sherry casks, was chosen by the members of our amateurs club last June. The second is a great favourite of the Maison du Whisky team from the closed distillery of Littlemill, released in a completely exclusive bottling aged in a first-fill sherry butt. The last (but by no means least) is the first edition of Redbreast 15 Year Old, which was launched in 2006.
