2010, Brora 30 yr

Postby semifan1 » Fri May 20, 2011 4:41 am

Newbie here, to the forms I was wondering if anybody has seen one in the states yet or knows of a website in the states.Im in CA so shipping should be no problem to get it here.Also I have seen the Brora 25 for 329.00 USD and was wondering what people thought of it any good and worth the price.Thanks

It is my understanding that neither the 2010 Brora nor the 2010 PE made it to the States. bcrossan and I have received identical information.

Not too bad, but if you can, I would advise you to buy a Brora 30 YO from any Annual Relase

Or do you mean something else?

I meant that the 25 YO is probably not the most representative Brora bottled by its owner. Furthermore, I just tasted the Brora 30 YO bottled 2010 (tasting note to be published within the next 2 weeks on my website) and its profile is rather different from the previous annual releases: cleaner, lighter and sweeter. A very good Brora, closer to the style of the 1970s Broras bottled in the Rare Malts range.

I agree. I found the 2007 much more sherried than the 2010

I find the Brora's distilled early - mid 70's my preference. A bit more peaty. A H2H of 2002, 2007 and 2009 I thought the 2002 was far superior

In my opinion the best Brora 30 OBs were the vintages released between 2003 and 2006, 2007 is still a good one.
The following releases are more clynelish-like in style.

Better is kind of in the eyes of the beholder. I too prefer the 2002 and 2007 but the 2010 is not bad whisky. It's a little "softer" in its presentation.
