A commemoration of Brora’s 200th Anniversary, this rare release from our diminishing reserves offers our connoisseurs a glimpse of our past, a taste from a moment in time. A golden age at Brora; the Age of Peat. A fine, elegant old coastal malt with rich fruit sweetness and compelling smokiness, held in perfect balance and a vigour remarkable for its age.

Brora – A Cult Icon

✴ Nestled on the North East coast of Scotland, Brora is an iconic malt distillery with an avid cult following. Its reputation as a truly special Single Malt Scotch is due to its supreme quality and uniquely rich and peaty flavour profile, combined with its increasing scarcity, having ceased production in 1983; becoming a ‘ghost’ distillery

✴ “If there is to be no more Brora (and it now seems almost certain that there won't be) it will be a terrible shame… [but] what is beyond doubt is that this will be a distillery that whisky aficionados will still be talking about decades after the last bottle is finally drunk.”

 

1969-1983 – The Age of Peat

✴ After an initial post-War boom, the distillery lay silent for a period, before being reborn in 1969 with a new passion and experimental productions

✴ These experiments showed that Brora made using heavily-peated barley from the  Northern Highland hills was not only a supremely fine whisky but showed a remarkable consistency

✴ Brora from this famous peated period is highly sought-after as it has shown to have aged exceptionally well and has become the most multi-dimensional, astonishing and complex malt; a timeless masterpiece.

Nez Cautious, with slight pickle at first, then sweet, smoky-peat wafts of treacle toffee, smoke with iodine. Rich, sweet fruit. Ripe figs. Raisins. Fire and brimstone. With water, hessian sacking, fine tweed, notes of the warehouse; all lightly harmonious, with elements of land, sea and sky.
Palais An exquisitely smooth, lightly waxy texture and a powerful, rich, darkly sweet, savoury then finally smoky taste, with great balance, length and persistence. Richly winey and fruity throughout, with dried figs and dates. Spiciness and growing smoky warmth; white pepper. Best straight but also deliciously drinkable with a dash of water, which adds to the sweetness and brings up a minty note; suggesting mint imperials, whilst dialing back the darker character. All this is still underpinned by a smokiness that is also held more in check but still very much present.
Finale Long, rich and sweetly warming, with more white pepper, subsiding to leave a lightly smoky aftertaste. With water, much sweeter and more mint-cool, and at the very end lightly drying.
