Brora (Closed) / Signatory

Brora 1981-2000 (Signatory) Review

Brora 1981 It's funny how these things come about, but a discussion on twitter about not having previously tried a Brora turned up a shop in the Netherlands who had a bottle of Brora 1981-2000 19 Year Old (Signatory Bottling) which they had opened and were selling samples of. So i just couldn't resist.

Stefan at Passievoovwhisky was really helpful and the sample arrived very quickly.

A whisky like this needed a special occasion though and so it was Christmas Day that i opened, nosed and enjoyed this lovely dram.

I really have missed out by not trying Brora before and will need to try to save up for a bottle of this for my collection. With Brora, Rosebank and Linlithgow all closed and all very very good they are all on my list of whiskies to have available.

Tasting Notes & Details


light smoke, like brown bread left in the toaster a minute or two too long, some acetone, lemon and citrus notes underlying with light oak and sweetness.


more of the slightly burnt toast along with the citrus freshness. Pine freshness and oak influences.


very smooth, with a slight hint of pine fresh citrus.
