The Diageo Special Releases 2016 bottling of whisky from cult-closed distillery Brora. This is a classic dram from the distillery, balancing fruit, smoke and a softly farmyard-tinged character.

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.

    This is one of the best Broras I've tried! The taste was absolutely delicious. I would rather buy this bottle than Port Ellen for double the price. This is the best Brora.
