Brora OMC 19yo. Good or "where the other stuff comes ou

Well?
I found a couple of bottles at 79 euro.
Are they worth it or did I just sign up for lovemaking "prison style"?
:roll:
Please help!

Well all I can say is that the OMC range is usually fairly good and I'd be surprised if they were sub standard casks ... however they do seem very cheap .... are the newly bottled ????

You have almost certainly done very well. I have a 22yo OMC Brora that is wonderful. I paid over £70 for it. I've not had a bad OMC.

These will not be new bottlings as Brora closed in 1983.

OMC Brora bottlings are the benchmark for that distillery. Every one I've had has been a real treat and I'd be surprised if the ones you picked up are fantastic. Great price as well. 8)

Do you know when they have been distilled? The ones from the 1980s in the OMC range were lightly peated, with some quite average.
In any the price seems very correct.
