Member Ratings and Notes
Smokey sweet delight!  A-/B+ 
Gotta love a Brora with a fruity nose, compliments the peat so nicely.   Rubbery, spicy peat, pretty damn tasty.  Finishes with excellent sweetness, and a floral note on the nose.   If you got the budget, a real nice Brora.   Retaste:  Much more floral on the second try.  
Syrupy honey, sweet, rich bourbon 
So sad that this stuff isn't around any more....but hey, they still have Clyelish, right?  This is great fruity aged nectar.  Loads of sweets and just enough darker notes mixed well with that old, musty leather/rubbery notes.  Really great many old Broras are. 

N: sugar, sherry and more sugar.
T: extremely sweet, which overwhelms any secondary flavors.
F: very hot and still sweet.
O: not particularly enjoyable without water. With water, it still doesn't demonstrate much beyond sweet fruit and sherry flavors, but those become more well-balanced and make it more fun to drink. Low B-

Nose is hot! Dried fruit and paint. Plate is hot! Spice and not much else, but good to drink. Finish is quick, but it is a good strong drink.  I like it.
