Tasting note

  • Appearance : Or antique, lumineux.
  • Nose : Doux et pourtant d’une grande complexité. Saupoudré de poivre blanc, il exprime beaucoup de fraicheur et alterne, notes sucrées et fumée de bois odorant. Peu à peu les fruits prennent le dessus, pommes cuites au four, gelée de groseille, citron et zestes de citron vert. Puis des notes plus rondes de cire et de vanille tempèrent ce fruité. Mais c’est sans compter avec l’apparition de la menthe verte, de menthol et de notes florales.
  • Palate : Puissant, quelque chose d’infiniment naturel, de pétillant et d’épicé. L’attaque est douce avec une touche subtile de fumée. S’ensuivent des notes de chêne brûlé et de sel. Des saveurs plus gourmandes de pâtisseries glacées danoises se faufilent.
  • Overall : Longue et persistante, des notes de fumée et de poivre noir concassé. Puis elle s’étire sur la menthe.
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’
