The fourteenth annual release of Brora single malt in Diageo's Special Releases is also the oldest in the series - a 37 year old 1977 vintage matured in refill American oak hogsheads. A release of 2,976 individually numbered bottles. The distillery closed in 1983, but a small amount of maturing stock remains, at least for a few more short years.
Nose: Quite dirty and smoky at first - always a good sign - but not a smoke bomb. It probably sits between the last two releases in that respect. This one's all about lime and kiwi, wax, white pepper and sweet nuts.
Palate: Big, fairly sweet (not too much so), rounded and rich. Some honey nut, definite kiwi once again as well as as an undercurrent of subtle integrated smoke.
Finish: Syrupy and satisfying.
Overall: Quite an old fashioned whisky, which I mean in a very good way indeed.
