The “Brora blend” from a 1960s miniature – 43%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Diesel smoke, shortcut electric cables, cherry wine gums, sweet sherry, nutmeg.
Palate: Mild but quite tarry peat, raisins in malaga wine, hints of mixed forest berries, fudge, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Finish: Medium long, smoky and slightly fruity.
Overall: This reminds me a little of the White Horse I recently tried but it is not quite as medicinal and more “rounded”. That old-style peatiness they have in common is unlike anything on the market today. Only the finish lacks some persistance.
