1981 Brora 30 Year Old Chieftain's K&L Selection Single Sherry Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky 750ml (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1082963

Your eyes do not deceive you! We have indeed secured a single sherry cask from the most sought-after, most desired, and most elusive of single malt distilleries - Brora. Considered the Holy Grail of single malt whiskies, Brora was the original Clynelish distillery before a new facility was built next door. Because there cannot be two distilleries with the same name, the new building was dubbed Clynelish while the old distillery was changed to Brora. Closed in 1983 after Diageo decided to keep only one of the operations running, Brora stocks have dwindled down to near extinction. Considered one of the best overall single malts by almost every reputable expert in the business, the waxy, oily, sometimes peaty character of the whisky has become the most difficult style to reproduce effectively. The newer Clynelish malts have come close, but nothing has the ethereal complexity of Brora. Our 30 year old selection was aged in sherry barrel for a softer, richer palate that brims with saline flavors, resin, supple viscosity, and an earthy sweetness, with a finish that lingers for minutes. Even more exciting is the rumor that Diageo will not release another Brora until 2020, when their stocks hit 40 years old. This may be the last chance to get any Brora for a reasonable price, let alone a fantastic cask like this one. These will sell out on pre-order so make sure you secure one quickly! -David Driscoll
