Member Ratings and Notes
Tim
 

N: Rich wood, light hint of oranges, slightly dusty. Lightly earthy, a little hint of fig and a faint hint of balsamic vinegar. A touch of molasses. 

 

P: Mouth-coating, beautifully nutty and earthy with plenty of wood. A little hint of kiwi shoe polish, a touch of leather, some light sichuan peppercorn and cayenne pepper. Lightly figgy and a touch of molasses. Faint peat in the background. 
 
F: Nice. Dried fruits, some pepper, plenty of wood. Some really nice apple skin on the finish too. Slightly rubbery hints in a good way. 
 
Really excellent. Perfect cask influence. One of the best Broras I've ever had.

N: Stewed oranges, tangerines, pine trees, and some wisps of smoke.
P: Big fruity attack, very crisp and high quality, silky mouth feel.   Oily.
F: Liquor filled chocolates, building up deliciously over many sips.
