A limited-edition single malt from Brora, released in 2019 to celebrate the distillery's 200th anniversary, ahead of its reopening in 2020. Matured for 40 years in American oak hogsheads, this Highland single malt is a fine, elegant old coastal malt with rich fruit sweetness and compelling smokiness, held in perfect balance and remarkable vigour for its age.
Best served straight but deliciously drinkable with a dash of water, which adds to the sweetness and brings out a minty note; suggesting mint imperials, whilst dialling back the darker character. All this is underpinned by a smokiness that is also held more in check but still very much present.
