Brora, Diageo 2014 Annual Release, 35 y.o.

£1,200.00 inc. VAT

Nose: Straight away it tells you this will be complex, but it’s not at all inpenetrable. It’s certainly going to be fruity.

Palate: Mmm. Fruit again. Some apples, but perhaps more plum, pear and a hint of citrus too. You can get some of the smoke coming through too, and a salty hint too – but it’s in the background and doesn’t fight with he fruit.

Finish: Despite the potential complexity, It’s gentle and dry. Subtle smoke.

Description

Brora 35 yo comes from one of Diegeo’s iconic ‘lost’ distilleries has been sent a lifeline when it was announced that it was being resurrected along with Port Ellen.

Silent since 1983, they are both part of a £35m investment by Diageo which will see them both producing whisky again.

Brora was originally built in 1819 and was, until 1968, known as Clynelish – until a distillery of the same name opened up. Brora originally produced heavily peated whisky to make up for a blend shortfall from Islay due to a drought on the island.

Brora whisky from around the early 1970’s then took a more traditional Highland style.
