    Colour: Gold
    Nose: Very peaty, very intense, mineral, and farmy. A big
    Whisky. Impressive nose.
    Taste: Dry, very peaty, very salty, very citric, slightly
    farmy, maritime, clean, on seaweeds and liquorice root. The finish is long to
    very long, clean, peaty, maritime, slightly citric (grapefruit), with some
    floral notes and a light fruitiness.
    General Impression: This Brora is lighter than the 30 YO
    Annual Releases, slightly more fruity, but the peat is definitely there and the
    nose gorgeous. This version was bottled at 75 cl for the US market.
