SMWS Tasting Notes

Colour: Polished pine

Flavour: Old & dignified

Lemon drizzle cake, dried pineapple cubes and waxiness on the nose give way to fresh ginger, gorse flowers and wood glue. Tasted neat, there was a spicy pepper heat and the waxy notes. The taste also offered peaches, vanilla pods and an apricot cake. Adding water led to notes of vanilla ice cream and toffee sauce, lemon sorbet, spiced apple tea and an indulgent orange spiced soap! The taste was warming and exotic introducing Turkish delight, old fashioned perfume (lavender) and a hint of ras Moroccan spices. This cask comes from the Brora distillery, whose name means ‘sloped garden’.

Drinking Tip: A dram for after church high tea

AlecM gave this whisky 93 points

Nose:sweet. Summer berries, delicate cream, strawberries and sponge.

Taste: light fruits - peach and pear - with background wax.
Finish: pineapple with slight waxyness on finish.

Despite its age, not a noticeable wood influence. Great whisky.
