    What a complexity and smoothness - actually no water needed but with water it gets some extra dimensions. This one is a hammer and one of my favorites of this bottling series.
    • Nose
      Fresh, rich, complex, tropical fruits, ripe bananas galore, pineapples, honey, vanilla notes, leathery, little peat and smoke, also some grassy and lemony notes - Wow!
    • Taste
      Very oily, thick, creamy, waxy - immediate attack of peat and smoke, lemony and woody notes, subtle sweetness - Great!

      With water it is more fruity and smoky
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm and citrusy, fruity in the end

    One of the most beloved and most desired releases.
    • Nose

      The sweetness of tropical fruits, beeswax and lime honey, juicy green apple and yellow fruit, canned pineapple and ripe mango, a little smoke and heat.
    • Taste
      92 92
      Sweet tropical and at the same time honey-waxy and slightly smoky.
    • Finish
      92 92
      Sweet fruit with a slight taste of smoke and paraffin.

    Not a Brora lover, but this is a solid dram! Peat and flower, not a contradiction here
    • Nose
      Leather, smoke, light peat, fishy, earthy, iodine, very nutty, smoked dry fish, fresh grapes (a typical old style indicator)
    • Taste
      Liqueur chocolate, honey, prominent peat, then developed into rose water, osmanthus (mayflower), lovely, a bit dry afterward
    • Finish
      Fermented beancurd, a lot of honey, then bitter finish
