Brora is now extremely rare and this 30 year old cask strength limited edition of 2,958 individually numbered bottles is the 8th of a very limited series of annual releases and due to irreplaceable depleted stocks is likely to be the last. It is vatted from a mixture of American oak refill casks.

Full gold in appearance with a nose of Chai tea/tea chest and aromas of smoke, iodine, salty butter, chocolate and quinine.
The addition of water brings out waxy salty seaweed notes.
The palate (reduced to approx 40% abv) is lightly salted and smoked. Superbly balanced and rounded with a slightly oily mouth feel.
The finish is lightly nutty and smoky.
Closure: Natural cork stopper
