One panellist got glossy magazines from the nose – “Cosmo with perfume samples” corrected another. Other comments included pineapple cubes, garibaldi biscuits, wax, rock salt and garden aromas of grass and flowers. On the palate, we identified milk chocolate and refreshers, something meaty and savoury (biltong?) sharp fruits (kiwi, star-fruit), light smoke and salt. Water altered the nose (waxed lemons, green apples, rosebud tea, lemon bonbons) and improved the palate, transforming it to a deliciously sweet dram with floral elements and slivers of citrus sharpness – like rose and lemon Turkish delight. This Brora distillery commands fine views of the North Sea.
