    A firm body.
    • Nose
      Powerful. Gorse in a sea mist.
    • Taste
      Salsify,asparagus.edible cactus,juicy cucumber. Very unusual. Both refreshing and appetizing ,though rather weak in the middle.
    • Finish
      Oily,olivey and peppery.

    Now this is very different. The grass is simply overpowering at the start (on the nose as well as the palate) but after some aeration time this fades away and the subtle fruity dram is revealed. Not at all what I expected from a Brora, this has no “dirty” tones or aromas from a faint peaty smoke. No not at all. The extreme grass aromas may have come from old bottle effect or oxidization (as this is quite an old bottle), who knows.
    All in all a fun and atypical Brora, very much fun to taste.
    • Nose
      A stale, subtle, green and refined whisky with aromas of fresh cut grass extravaganza (maybe even liquified grass), sunflowers, hay, dried flowers, hedge leafs (privet), herbal tea, green tea, acacia honey, subtle coffee, field flowers, apple, subtle spices, hint of leather, light tobacco, overripe melon, overripe pineapple and some fresh sawdust.
    • Taste
      A soft, sweet, subtle and refined whisky with aromas of hay, again a grass extravaganza, acacia honey, cinnamon, apple, white chocolate, white pepper, ginger, dried flowers, grains, hint of tannins, earthy tones, old books, sponge, dusty tones, subtle mint tea, and a hint of oak.
    • Finish
      A relative short end sweet finish with aromas of acacia honey, grass, hay, butter, subtle spices, cedarwood and a hint of oak.

    Its decent but its light with it, I love Brora but I found this a bit uninvolving.
    • Nose
      Definite, melon, pear and pineapple mixed with fresh sawn wood.
    • Taste
      Its light, on white fruit like the nose indicated, jam and buttercream sponge filling and I detect a little mint which reminds me of a mojoto cocktail.

      Its creamy and sweet.
    • Finish
      Approaching medium, length and sweet on icing sugar.

    Some tangy, some fruit, pastry side, vanilla, coconut. The aqueous mouth is seriously lacking in flavor. Disappointing for the name.
