Brora, Diageo 2016 Annual Release, 38 y.o.

£1,450.00 inc. VAT

Nose: This Brora was said to promise more smoke and ash than previous examples, and smoke is something that certainly introduces itself on the nose – alongside citrus too.

Palate: The smoke stays present, albeit subtly – which is great as it doesn’t overpower the emerging citrus fruits.

Finish: The citrus remains with a long spice finish. There’s hints of salt too giving an almost coastal feel.

Description

Brora 38 yo comes from one of Diegeo’s iconic ‘lost’ distilleries which has been sent a lifeline when it was announced that it was being resurrected, along with Islay’s 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.
