Discover the Brora distillery from the Highlands!

The founder of the Brora distillery (formerly called Clynelish) was the Marquis of Stafford, a formidable and inspired businessman. He make his barley stocks profitable, his opened a distillery and starts selling whisky in 1824. The distillery is bought in 1896 by the James Ainslie & Co group that resells some of its share to the DLC (Distillers Company Ltd) in 1912. In 1967, a semi-detached distillery  called Clynelish is built. The old distillery is closed and reopened in 1975 under the Brora name, and definitely closed in 1983. Brora used to produced the most peated Single Malt of the Highlands, and was nicknamed by some aficionados the “Lagavulin of the North”.

Colour: golden yellow or polished brass. Slightly oily.

Nose: a frank attack, fresh and lively. Warm. Evolves onto deep richness. Creamy first notes, warm scented wax, vanilla custard, floating on aromatic herbs and a sharp edge of grains, wrapped in a thin smoke layer. Nutty and waxy notes soften into an honeyed gleam with roasted coconut. Iodine notes appears after a while, like a distant sea breeze. A dash of water clears out the salt and highlights the scented wax, while honey and lemongrass overlay a more subtle vanilla flavour.

Palate: a beautiful texture and stunning flavour. Sweeter than the nose suggests, coating and smooth. A hint of freshly picked strawberry foreshadows a zesty lime and candied lemon peel that tickle the tongue. Wood notes, sand and seasprays perfect the wonderfully balanced palate. After dilution, the dram is lighter, fresher, fulfilling: a full and round texture, more than at cask strength, less smooth also, more tangy, clean and softly smoky.

Finish: wrapping, thick and slightly tangy. Minty chocolate, a smoke puff vanishing into a complex, fresh and spicy finish.
