Brora 30 Year Old (8th Release Bottled 2009) Review

Brora 30Another one of those really damn expensive drams with this Brora 30 year old (8th release bottled 2009) which although i loved it, i really don't think it's worth all the hype.

It's got a real gamey meatiness about it, with that waxy oilyness that i would expect from Brora (and Clynelish) with smoke hiding more on the palate and finish than on the nose.

it's a damn good dram, but for me it's not one to spend that amount of money on, there are better, cheaper, drams that i would spend the cash on, but if you want something to keep then why not this.

If you have the spare £900 you can try this by getting a bottle from The Whisky Exchange

Tasting Notes & Details


Gentle gamey meat with a waxy note and lots of gentle wood with oak and vanilla with gentle oak and lemongrass


Lots of gentle sweet wood with hints of unripe green banana and lots of gentle sweet smoke and green wood


fabulous green banana and smoke
