Colour: pale gold.
Nose: ah, now it’s getting even more Brora-ish. Certainly peatier and wilder, with that famous ‘farminess’ (wet dog and wet hay), slightly mustardy, peppery… We’re much closer to the famous 1972’s now, this one is just a little simpler. Excellent, Brora as we like it.
Mouth: ah yes, it’s the same at the attack, with a superb mix of peat, lemon, juice, apple juice, pepper and that waxiness. Amazing to see how two casks that were distilled on the very same day gave us two rather different whiskies (okay, I’m stating the obvious here).
Finish: quite long, peppery, citrusy and just a tad cardboardy at the very end.
