    Re-casked into bourbon after 16 years in sherry.

    N: Following that Brora is a tough gig but this is pretty awesome too. Lovely sherry action alongside dunnage-y malt honey is a promising start to say the least.
    T: A simply sublime cushion-soft mouthfeel. Travels down the hessian-dunnage, runny honey elixir route,…
    F: … rumbling on with its squidgy maltiness enhanced by a light peppery-soft seasoning.
    C: You could take this anywhere. Ideal whisky for beginners and enthusiasts alike, I’d have thought.
