Brora (Closed 1983) Distillery, Brora , Sutherland, Highland , Highland, Scotland
Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: A big waft of butterscotch,giving way to warming oil and tar,axle grease. The whisky equivalent to the Weeting Steam Festival.
Palate: Yowza .A big dollop of stewed pear and then the most delightful mix of smoke and spice,blackcurrant cordial.
Finish: More of the same. Long and sweet, with rich stewed fruits and smoke.
Comment: Another wonder from a wonderful and much missed distillery.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Fresh but spirity. Needs to settle down. When the alcohol bite disappears,amedicinal note is followed by a juicy pineapple aroma.All wrapped in tar.Touch of grapefruit.
Palate: Oily. Sweet at first then a spicy outburst wipes the sweet notes. Licorice freshens up the palate.
Finish: Long,spicy,with a hint of tar.
Comment: A big boy. But if you give it time,you'll tame it. The fruity notes display is really scrumptious.
