Brora, 35 Year Old

RRP £1,850

This 35-year-old Brora is the third Cask of Distinction from Diageo in the tasting, and it’s just as good as the others. It has the classic oily character associated with Brora, with floral notes of hyacinth and sweet notes of raw honey and beeswax. It is an old, elegant, fragile whisky that beguiles as it retreats from the senses, forcing the drinker to keep going back to it. There is a thread of smoke throughout, and right at the end, a sweet note of crystalline sugar. A very fine whisky.
