Member Ratings and Notes
Great but not excellent. I used to spend more time with a malt like this, telling myself that its “elegance” needed to be explored — and maybe that’s correct to say. This hits me with oak, grassy stuff, pepper, citrus background, and the peat is there... great stuff, but I'm probably biased for expecting more.

N: Delicate peat.

P: Oh yeah. Very clean peat, lemon, hot smoke, vanilla.

F: Oily n' good. Vanilla. Delicious.


It's got that characteristic Brora mixture of fuel like peat notes, grassy malt and ocean air, along with a touch of lemon rind late in the palate.



It's perfectly balanced with no single element dominating.


Note to Adam: Its elegance needs to be explored!


Fruit, saline, lemon curd, meringue, toffee, nuts and a light spice accompanied by dried fruit and smoke. It’s a nice bright aroma.

Full an warming it’s layered with crisp notes of fruit, lemon curd, creme brûlée, toasted grain, smoke and light bit of dried apricots all strung together in perfect balance.

Long and peaty with notes of fruit, saline and malt intertwined.

- Has the kind of lovely bright aroma, crisp balanced palate and long meandering finish that puts a smile on my face. -
Preserved old school fruit, wet newspaper, hay, wheat, grapefruit and mild peat smoke
