Brora, 30 year old, 55.7%

Price: $400.00 Issue: Summer 2008 Reviewer: John Hansell

Astonishingly fresh and clean for 30 years in oak, and with incredible depth. Slight oily texture. Appetizing brine, with honeyed vanilla, mustard seed, green olive, Seville orange, and lemon zest. Underlying smoke, damp peat, and seaweed. Put simply, Brora at its finest.
