Brora 37 Years Old 1977 70cl 50.4°

Distillery : Brora / Country : Scotland / Reference: : 22830

Distilled in 1977 and bottled in 2015, this Brora of intense gold colour is quite rare. Only 2 976 bottles of this sweet and strong Scotch whisky have been released, with a caramel sparkling, red fruits and marzipan, coated with the finest cocoa powder.

Its perfume evokes a wood fire and then, a lovely sweetened mix meets the nose: accents of raisins, roasted coconut, honey, lemon peel and marzipan. These aromas are contrasted with intense hints of peat, a dash of water revealing a light scent of jam, smooth caramel and intense notes of mint, herbs and perfumed bath salts.

Bottled at cask-strength, it develops a perfectly balanced taste of sweet and spices, underlined with a hint of wood smoke.

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: intense golden yellow.

Nose: sweet, round and well-balanced. Sweet notes are underlined with a light scent of wood smoke.

Palate: powerful, at cask-strength. Sweet, then spicy and dry, slightly sooty. A subtle flavour of chocolate truffle and dark cocoa, orange peel, honey, caramel and wood smoke with ripe red fruits undertones. A dash of water reveals a sweeter taste, lighter and slightly more mineral with resfreshing accents of vanilla and pine wood resin.

Finish: medium to long and extremely warm. Quite fresh and spicy with aromatic herbs and a light minty scent wonderfully associated with dark chocolate, liquorice and roasted coffee.
