Tasting Notes by Adelphi;
1 of only 239 bottles from cask no. 3847
A rare and exciting refill hogshead from this famous Brora distillery. The pale gold indicates that the cask hasn’t been too active, which is a bonus at this age. The beading is one of the best we have seen for a long time, indicating a viscous mouth texture. A bright nose with just a slight prickle, with overall hints of scented wax with a floral top note. Then, moorland plants, heather and bog myrtle, fresh pine sap and wild flowers – a walk in Highlands! Tasting straight it is remarkably smooth and viscous with honeycomb and honey in the warming aftertaste. At reduced strength there is light candle wax with faded pop pourri. Tasting again, it is smooth with a soft texture, and a nice balance of primary tastes. A hint of white chocolate in finish rounds off this exceptional whisky.
