Tasting Notes

Nose

A curiously sweet/dry peatiness. Almost chewy oak/malt resonance that forms an ever greater backbone than the soft but significant smoke.

Palate

Wave upon wave of gentle, slightly crusted peat couched in a sweet bedrock of malt.

Finish

Slightly peppery with drier oaky tones. Almost too beautifully balanced to be true.

Comment

This Brora is close to perfection. To ignore would be your eternal loss.
