A Brora masterclass: rich waxy, smoky and sweet
Colour – Polished broxe
Nose – Sooty coal dust cloaks lemon and honey, softening into smooth butterscotch. Then a herbal edge heralds the famed Brora waxiness with savoury notes. Drops of water bring freshness, embers and light smoke.
Palate – Dense, waxy and intense, with tropical fruit sweetness. Then aromatic and drying with aspicy warmth. A hint of water contraststhe sweetness with crisp fruit, offset by silky dryness.
Finish – Long warming and smoke scented:spicy and finally drying.
Remember with a whisky like this it’s not a drink it’s an experience.
