Nose: what did you expect? Farmy! Soft peat smoke and charcoal but also cows, manure and interesting notes of goat cheese. Horse saddle leather. Tobacco. Fresh sea breeze. Sharper notes of balm, hay, a bit of yeast… Fern forest. Camphor. Not very fruity, although I pick up soft yellow apple and citrus. Water makes it rounder and brings out a hint of vanilla sweetness. Truly unique.

Mouth: very powerful and immediately maritime, with a briney hint of liquorice. Quite dry and oily. A sharp hint of mustard. Much more peated and smoked now. Takes water very well, with added notes of apple, lemon pie and ginger.

Finish: long, hints of liquorice, bonfire smoke and pepper.

I would very much like to try this one, but at 300 EUR for a bottle... @WhiskyNotes have you tried the Connoisseur's Choice bottle (that is only about 100 EUR) and if so, would you recommend it as an alternative?

The 1982 CC, right? I didn't try it, but 1980's Brora is very different, more mineral / waxy / fruity (more Clynelish). I would really to find a 1970's version...

Let me know when you're in my neighbourhoud, you're welcome to try this Brora!

I tasted it last weekend, absolutely gorgeous, remarkably better than the 25yo. I gave it eight points more. Don't pass up a chance to taste this!
