Brora 40 Year Old 200th Anniversary Description
Distilled at Brora on the Sutherland coast in 1978, this limited edition expression has been bottled one year before the almost-lost distillery is due to reopen. Bottled in celebration of the distillery’s 200th anniversary, this single malt was laid down at a time when Brora was producing a peated malt using heavily peated northern Highland barley. MAtured for four decades and limited to just 1,819 bottles (in celebration of the anniversary year), this expression is presented at a strength of 49.2% abv.
The nose is rich and sweet with fruity notes, ripe figs, and a fiery, smoky side. The palate is smooth and lightly waxy, with a powerful, rich, darkly sweet flavour becoming more savoury before the smoke emerges and lingers on in the finish.
