Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott (TWE)

    Nose: Waxed boots and jackets, damp blankets and dogs, meaty touches with a hint of farmyard, autumn-leaf bonfires, musty cheese rind (in a good way) and a touch of tinned pineapple.

    Palate: Soft and sweet, with sugared almonds and milk-chocolate-covered hazelnuts balanced by a light floral sweetness and a background of earthiness and hay. Sweet liquorice touches build along with red fruit gums and gentle smoke.

    Finish: Icing sugar, dark chocolate, earthy smoke and soft spice.

    Comment: While the phrase ‘typical Brora’ seems a bit damning, it’s actually a good thing. It balances the smoke and earthiness with the other side of Brora’s character: sweet and fruity notes. It is a typical Brora: very good.
