Review: Brora 25 year oldFebruary 1st, 2009
Here’s my thoughts on Diageo’s newest limited edition Brora. Next up: the most recent Port Ellen.
Brora, 25 year old, 56.3%, $350
Quite lively for 25 years, with layers of bright fruit (lemon, nectarine, grapefruit, pineapple) on a bed of vanilla and honey. There’s a peppering of dried spice, smoldering ember, and beach pebbles. Lightly smoky, dried spice finish. Very nice. Brora enthusiasts will not be disappointed, but the prices the whisky from this shuttered distillery are creeping up.
