"Bottled in 2013 - one of only 2944 bottles. A brora masterclass: rich, waxy, cereal sweetness and honeyed fruitiness, combined with complex, drying aromatics and magnificently appetising sooty smoke. It's not as smoky as earlier overtly 'coastal' expressions, so the underlying scented wax character of brora dominates and this is a very clean and well-structured whisky, still robust, yet also a fine aperitif. Golden polished bronze. Rich beading. Immediately sooty, as with coal dust in the air after a delivery, then delicate lemon and honey, followed by dried mixed fruit and herbal cough-drops (even ancient incense), all sweetening into smooth butterscotch. After a while the incense becomes more waxy (the Brora key-note) and pronounced, and there's a savoury fusion of cereal, brine and tapenade on crusty sourdough bread. Water brings more soft and embracing wax, with a fresher scent. Peach skins. Scorched wood, yet only light smoke. Drinks well neat; intense, waxy and tooth-coating with tropical fruit sweetness, then dried fruit skins and crunched grape seeds; aromatic and drying, with a spicy, gingery warmth. With water, smoother and sweeter; barley sugar and honey are balanced now by green apple or gooseberry tartness, offset by superb, silky, late tannins. Long finish, warming and smoothly smoke-scented, with a subtle cedar and frankincense spiciness. Sweet, then finally drying. Beautifully balanced with water."
