Brora 26 yo 1981/2007

Brora 26 yo 1981/2007 Signatory Cask Strength

Cask Strength, Signatory

Single malt - North Highlands
57.1% ABV

Nose: Oranges, sherry, rubber bands, cognac, strawberry, coriander.
Mouthfeel: Heavy body, thick, oily.
Tasting: Sweet. Oak, vanilla, oranges, raisins, coriander, rubber bands. With water, it gets more fruity - oranges, mainly. Also stronger notes of coriander and some hints of peat.
Finish: Long. Cayenne pepper, black pepper, vanilla.


Cask #1520, 391 bottles. A little too much wood in the taste, although the nose was fantastic. Lots of fruit if you look for it, and it's quite peppery and spicy, differentiating it from the very nice aged Glen Grants I've had. It was a little underwhelming though, because of what came before it.


I like this.
