Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: very attractive Highlands style, fruity (peach, apple, lemon), a bit perfumed even but slightly austere at the same time. Some smoke and peat but quite subtle and on par with the fruitiness. A few salty notes (sea-air, iodine, oysters). Hints of shoe polish and paraffin. Some leather. Very balanced.
Mouth: malty and spicy, with a firm kick at cask strength and an oily texture. Bittersweet with a touch of vanilla. Lightly peated again. Tobacco and dark chocolate as well (sweeter than other Brora).
Finish: rather long and warm, slightly peppery, drying and smokey.
