Bottled 2009. A highly sought after single sherry cask bottling of the closed Highland distillery.
Just 93 bottles. Packaged in an impressive wooden box and numbered certificate.
Barley sugar sweet initially on the nose – it then runs citrically fruited, spicy, and displays some of its Sherry cask heritage - lightly oaked - plus something interestingly oceanic. Palate wise it carries some desiccating salt – yet is backed by that same earlier barley and fruit, plus a tobacco - and - mocha character. That all runs to a massivly sweet, spicy and warming style, with a light peated quality.
Brora Single Malt Whiskey
Brora Distillery is situated close to the Sutherland coast on the edge of Brora. Established in 1819 as Clynelish Distillery by the Marquis of Stafford and his wife the Countess of Sutherland on their Sutherland estate to produce fine Highland malt whiskey. Re-named Brora Distillery in 1975 its surviving but precarious buildings include a round red brick chimney, malt kiln with pagoda roof, bellcote topped with a gilded weather cock, two big wooden worm tubs, miniscule gauger's house and two wee copper stills. Brora Distillery closed in 1983 and is a lost Scottish malt whiskey distillery.
