This is bottle 256, from cask 281. Distilled 25th February 1982.

From old tasting notes: This is one of many bottlings of Brora that is getting harder and harder to find. Stunning whisky, very waxy, mineral and coastal with lots of background trademark 'farmyness' in the mix

Colour: bronze amber.

Nose: whaaat? But his is perfect! Immediately tertiary, with no primary or secondary notes at all (malt, oak, sherry…), rather an avalanche of greases and waxes for starters, then a lot of tobacco, teas, engine oil, old chartreuse, old car engine (Bakelite, old rubber) and the largest collection of mushrooms ever. Our dear old pu-erh tea, and it’s flying high. Impressed, despite a very moderate smokiness.

Mouth: the oak’s perhaps a little more noticeable, and this is not your usual Brora (as far as Brora can be usual), since all what we’re getting in the arrival is a lot of smoked meat and ham. So this Brora is very bacony, before more oranges and tar take the lead. Some salt, some chocolate, a sooty side... Perfect mouth feel, 46% vol.’s never been a bad strength, in fact.

Finish: quite long, very chocolaty, with touches of prunes, some salt, and more oranges and bacon.
