Tasting notes
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Complex. Vanilla, poached pear, wax, peat, seaweed, Danish oil and a whiff of the cowshed.
Palate: Rich and complex, this unfolds slowly and has richness, balance, texture, sweet waxy fruits and a lift of smoke. Some package.
Finish: Cigar ash.
Comment: OK, so who is going to stump up the cash to get Brora up and running again?
9.0
Taster   Michael Jackson
Nose: Fresh limes. Vegetal. Sea air.
Palate: Medium. Firm. Sweet start. Truffle oil. Whole-grain mustard. Salt.
Finish: Stingingly appetising. Long.
Comment: Exuberant interplay of sweet and dry flavours, pivoted on a firm malt background.
