Brora 40 Year Old 200th Anniversary Description

Distilled at Brora on the Sutherland coast in 1978, this limited edition expression has been bottled one year before the almost-lost distillery is due to reopen. Bottled in celebration of the distillery's 200th anniversary, this single malt was laid down at a time when Brora was producing a peated malt using heavily peated northern Highland barley. MAtured for four decades and limited to just 1,819 bottles (in celebration of the anniversary year), this expression is presented at a strength of 49.2% abv.

The nose is rich and sweet with fruity notes, ripe figs, and a fiery, smoky side. The palate is smooth and lightly waxy, with a powerful, rich, darkly sweet flavour becoming more savoury before the smoke emerges and lingers on in the finish.

Knowledge Bar

Brora was founded in 1819 as 'Clynelish', before it was renamed in the 1970s when the current Clynelish distillery was built next door. In 1983 the distillery fell silent for more than three decades until owner, Diageo, announced plans to resurrect the distillery in 2017, along with the iconic Port Ellen distillery on Islay. The renovated distillery will be complete with its original stills, which have been restored by Abercrombie coppersmiths in Alloa.
