Dried strawberries, candied tropical fruit, dried orchard fruit, toasted malt, lemon peel, pecans and baking spice with a light bit of smoke and a thread of OBE pulling through it all.
That musty old bottle effect was super prominent when the 1981 Old Malt Cask Brora 19 Years was first opened, but within 3-4 days it settled down to a background hum.
Dried strawberries, roasted malt, lemon drops, dried tropical and orchard fruit, candied pecans, baking spice, and a touch of melon and brown sugar with a bit of smoke and musty OBE.
If this was the only whisky I could drink, I wouldn’t be mad at my lot in life. This is a flavor profile to celebrate.
Long -> Complex dried and candied fruits, malt and OBE drift out to a soft olde candy sweetness.
