Bottled from a small batch of casks from a single vintage, Br6 is what whisky from this distillery is about – fruity, spicy and complex. It’s more approachable than previous releases, thanks to its 50.4% ABV, but add a drop of water to see all that it has to offer.
Distillates from 1992 matured in five Refill Hogsheads.
Green and grassy to start, with sweet and sour notes of orchard fruit creeping in behind. As it sits in the glass, sweet spice develops.
Dryer than other Br releases, but still sweet and fruity, with vanilla, honey-drizzled lemons and a touch of freshly cut grass. Water brings out nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as sweet baked apples.
Sweet vanilla fades to dry spice.
