review taken from furtias.blogspot.com.es/2012/12/…


Color: Old gold

Nose: Cow stable, duh! very farmy, humid leather and logs, camphor, peat and charcoal and interesting hints of goat milk. There’s a garden atmosphere all around it that brings me back to my grandpa’s orchard, including fresh apples, khaki and nuts.

Taste: As soon as it’s entering your mouth you recognize what a wild whisky tastes like; a pure Brora. It immediately seizes you and shows its coastal character; very maritime at first. Then becomes sweeter and fruity: lemon and apples mostly, also mustard and liquorice. A monster!

Finish: Sharp and dry, peat, smoke, liquorice and culminated with a grilled seafood taste. Incredibly exciting in short.

A clear example of the one-off brilliant 70s Brora style that is becoming rarer and rarer to find.

Rate: 94

Distilled at 55.7, this release perfectly fits into what a farmy whisky tastes like, an another example of the 70s bottlings. If your budget do not let you revise over more than one of the annual releases I personally recommend this one in case of doubt about which of them all you should acquire, the 2007 will surely get you captivated, ranking together with the 2004 and 2011 in my top three OB Brora bottlings by far.
