Whisky Reviews for Brora 1972 DL

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 94.27 points

  1. Furtia scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    surrounded by your best folk: pigging out on top quality seafood and drinking the best spirit/wine at a sheep stable must be something similar to a sip of this dram :P
    This Brora is what the essence of the Highlands' landscape is indeed for me all squeezed in a bottle.
    Very complex and unique. The Lord of the Highlands imo.
    • Nose
      Sends you right into a sheep stable, wet earth, grilled seafood which stand out of an endless stream of flavours: fruit, tobacco, beeswax, nuts, herbal balm, smoke, dried figs and on and on
    • Taste
      Wet tobacco leaves come up at first, then evolving into a chain of different tastes: fresh fruits lead to dried fruits, then leather into soil, then into tar and oil. Finally woody sherry that, wow! leaves behind a wonderful sweetness after all !! unbelievable!
    • Finish
      Fig liqueur, herbal liqueur with iodine hints giving way to ashes and sherry again which last F O R E V E R.

  2. veruselaing scored this whisky 96 points Member Junior

    It is the best Brora expression I have ever tasted. I would say PERFECTION even though it may seem too much, but it's  PERFECT DRAM WITHIN THE SHERRY KIND. 6 STARS
    • Nose
      Intense! Soil, mineral, old furniture, oily, creamy, barbecue sauce, cigarrette, wine cellar, of course peat, dried fruits. Simply Spectacular, so much happening in here. A very complex dram only for "the truly experienced".
    • Taste
      Stunninly overwhelming... strikes you speechless for a few seconds...then strikes again. First the fruity liquor, then a delightful peated sherry! candied fruits, citric fruits, fresh but serious herbal extracts that firms down the thick malt, pepper, cardamom, cashew nuts, etc SPECTACULAR DRAM but hard to habdle because of the too many flavours amnd feeling going on in the glass.
    • Finish
      the powerful punch of the spirit last for some seconds leaving a gap for the peated and fruity (candied, dried and citrics) sherry, that enters along the tongue like a parade's orchestra. Able to differentitate the instruments in the orchestra but forcing you to forget the flavours and feel the final result of the mix. DIVINE, that's it.
