This is a Signatory bottling (cask #1586) of 21 year old Brora that was distilled in 1981 and bottled in 2003 at 46%.
Nose: Much brinier than the other Broras I’ve had but not quite as farmy as them. Waxy stone fruits, subtle peat with mossy oak.
Palate: Very salty up front with peat ash, bitter oak, and tobacco – still very little on the farm note front.
Finish: Bitter salted oak with subtle peat and lingering spice.
Rating: 88/100 – Doesn’t live up to the Brora OBs I’ve had, but a good dram nonetheless.
Value for the money: These seem to go for around $450+ and it’s an easy pass at that price. Broras are going to be expensive no matter what, but I’d rather save up for an OB.
