1 case
Equiv. £6,000.00 per bottle

Tasting Note:

A limited-edition single malt from Brora, released in 2019 to celebrate the distillery's 200th anniversary, ahead of its reopening in 2020. Matured for 40 years in American oak hogsheads, this Highland single malt is a fine, elegant old coastal malt with rich fruit sweetness and compelling smokiness, held in perfect balance and remarkable vigour for its age.

On the nose there is a slight prickle at first, then sweet, smoky-peat wafts of treacle toffee, smoke with iodine. Rich, sweet fruit. Ripe figs. Raisins. On the palate it is exquisitely smooth, lightly waxy texture and a powerful, rich, darkly sweet, savoury then finally smoky taste, with great balance, length and persistence. The finish is long, rich and sweetly warming, with more white pepper, subsiding to leave a slightly smoky aftertaste. With water, much sweeter and more mint-cool, and at the very end lightly drying.
