Footnotes

  • Tasting notes:

    "a massive, brooding and drying old Brora, seemingly made of smoke, oak, pepper, dark fruit and fire. Still astonishingly powerful, it takes water well. In colour a burnished honey-gold, it shows smoke, oilskins and rich, dark bittersweet notes on the nose, with hints of the beach and a big, woody bonfire. It has a savoury, earthy, very peppery centre. With a good splash of water, it is quickly smoky, spicy, peppery and (always) nose-drying. The taste starts bitter-sweet and smooth with sea-salt, pepper and spicy oak-wood. Water (a good splash) brings up the spicy, smoky sweetness and smooth texture, with the pepper now more cooling. Drying on the palate throughout, and in the finish."

    "巨大、深沉而乾醇的老布朗拉,看似以熏煙、橡木、胡椒、黑果和火釀成。仍然驚人的强烈,與水配搭宜人。酒色金蜜明亮,透散熏煙、油布和豐厚甘甜的酒香,也有沙灘與燃木大篝火的氣息。口味濃辣、樸實、火熱。加進適量的水,很快就釋出熏煙、香料、胡椒及(總是)乾醇的香氣。入口味道甘甜順喉,有海鹽、胡椒和辛辣橡木味。(一點點的)水更會帶出辛辣、煙熏甜味與順滑的質感,而胡椒味現在更冷卻。味道乾燥,一直至收結。
