Brora 37 Year Old Reviews
Tasting notes by Billy A
Nose: Sweet waxed fruit, mulching straw and muddy farmyards, with hints of violets and gentle, earthy smoke. As the whisky develops in the glass, maritime ozone and sea spray appear, along with richer notes of leather, driftwood and smoked ham.
Palate: Sweet and gently floral, with polished tables, freshly cut boards and a wisp of smoke. Delicate fruit emerges from behind the spice and smoke – baked apples, lemon and raisins – along with the ham from the nose and sweet cured bacon. The sweetness slowly fades on the palate, leaving barrel char bitterness, bung cloth and earthy dunnage warehouse floors.
Finish: Charcoal smoke and lingering liquorice.
Comment: For me, this is the perfect balance of Brora character – sweet, fruit and floral with a hint of farmyard, earth and smoke.

A good mineral, citric and rather smoky Brora, with some woody notes starting to show off
This whisky is absolutely stunning. At the age of 37 the usual alcohol smell for cask strength is very much softened to a deep oak aroma. When on tongue, the typical burning flavour of spirits rolls to the side of my tongue straight away, and leaves that silky smoothness with a rich flavour in the middle, which later goes down my throat. Exceptional.
