Brora 37 Year Old
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Coastal Highlands.

Appearance

A deep yellow gold with exceptional beading.

Nose

Cautious, yet welcoming: a smoky fresh-lit fire, giving way to candle-wax and herbs. Soft sultana cake become malty, with toasted coconut, honey, lemon zest and subtle wood smoke.

Body

Medium to rich, soft.

Palate

Powerful at cask strength – syrup-smooth, with the sweetness of dark chocolate truffles to start, then spicy, mouth-drying and faintly charred, with hints of wood smoke and ripe, red berries.

Finish

There’s a peppery tingle in the warming finish, which is oaky and herbal with dry, coating tannins. Behind, notes of roasted coffee lead to a clean, aromatic conclusion, while spice remains in the lingering aftertaste. With water it’s lighter, more cedary and waxy, the late are tannins smoother and longer.

Information:

Make: BroraTM

Age: 37 Years Old

Strength: 50.4% ABV

Place of Origin: Brora

Region: Coastal East Highland

Nose:

Cautious, yet welcoming: smooth, rounded and well balanced. Peaty, with a smoky fresh-lit fire soon giving way to scented candle-wax and dry, fragrant herbs. Soft sultana cake notes become malty, with toasted coconut, honey and lemon zest underscored by subtle wood smoke. With time there’s butterscotch and a little marzipan too, again offset by darker notes of peat. The aromas fuse with water, which raises sweet jam and creamy toffee below top notes of minty, fragrant herbs and perfumed bath salts, and less pronounced smoke.

Palate:

Powerful at cask strength. Syrup-smooth and sweet to start, then spicy, mouth-drying and faintly charred. Fresh and fragrant flavours of cocoa, dark chocolate truffles, orange zest and toffee honeycomb rise before background hints of wood smoke and ripe, red berries. With water the taste is softer and lighter; less sweet and more mineral, with vanilla and distant mouth-cooling pine resin.

Finish:

Medium to long and deeply warming: spicy too, its herbal freshness fused with dark chocolate, appetising toothsome tannins and a minty, fragrant aftertaste. Lengthy and gentle with water. Distinctly minty again, with hints of liquorice and well-roasted coffee in the background.
