Brora 32 Year Old Scotch Whisky Bottled 2011

This is the oldest bottling of Brora from Diageo at 32 Years Old, and with only 1404 individually numbered bottles (less than half that of previous releases), it is sure to be very popular.

This Brora bottling was distilled in 1978

Official Brora Tasting Notes
Overview - Magnificent, and excellent at cask strength, the coastal, smoky, savoury Brora character is here sweetly softened in a malt that's courteous yet informal, it has the depth and complexity of age yet also a spicy, lively twinkle, like a favourite uncle.
Appearance - Antique gold. Bright, with good beading.
Nose - Modest but complex. Mild nose-feel, yet with a white pepper prickle. Immediate, sharp freshness, rising over sweet malt with fragrant wood smoke curling in the background. Gradually more fruity (baked apples with red-currant jelly, lemon and lime zests) then waxy (warm candlewax) with a trace of hessian, faint spearmint and creamy vanilla. Late, cleansing notes. Water freshens and sweetens things, liberating fresh menthol and floral notes underscored by soft, lemony biscuit, or Madeira cake.
Body - Dense. Oily and smooth. Medium.
Palate - At natural strength, fizzy and spicy. Subdued at first, sweet to start, with subtle smoke followed by sweet, charred notes (burnt fruit cake) then distinctly salty and drying. Smoother to drink with water - lightly sweet, then still salty and drying, with less spice, and now the burnt fruit-cake has become a soft, chewy, iced Danish pastry.
Finish - Long and warming, with late smoke and crushed black peppercorns. Later, traces of wood ash. Creamy and cooler with water, sweet with faint smoke.

Brora Distillery was closed in 1983, and it is noted that only small stocks remain that are yet to be bottled.
