Part of the Diageo Special Releases Collection 2014.
A limited edition, natural cask strength single malt from the closed distillery at Brora on the Sutherland coast. It is the equal-oldest Brora bottled in this series and the thirteenth of a limited series of annual releases. Annual allocation has extended availability of this irreplaceable malt but stocks are now depleted.
Distilled in 1978 and matured in refill American Oak and European Oak casks for over 35 years old - only 2,964 individually numbered bottles were produced.
Mild nose-feel, with Brora’s keynote scented wax immediately apparent, backed by old-fashioned canvas tents with hemp guy-ropes, sweet tablet/ crystalline sugar, crystalline salt and clotted cream. Waxy and more spicy that the nose leads one to believe, with a sweetish start and a salty middle before a long, warming, slightly smoky finish.
