A limited-edition single malt from Brora, released in 2019 to celebrate the distillery's 200th anniversary, ahead of its reopening in 2020. Matured for 40 years in American oak hogsheads, this Highland single malt is a fine, elegant old coastal malt with rich fruit sweetness and compelling smokiness, held in perfect balance and remarkable vigour for its age.

Sweet, smoky-peat wafts of treacle toffee, smoke with iodine. Rich, sweet fruit. Ripe figs. Raisins. Fire and brimstone.

Long, rich and sweetly warming, with more white pepper, subsiding to leave a slightly smoky aftertaste.
