Has anyone tasted the new Brora 30 2007.
I would like to know your recommendations?

Bit too expensive for me, but I do really like Brora

A less expensive alternative is the 1982 Rare Malt expression. truly one of the best drams I have ever had :thumbsup:

If you do bite into a bottle, let us know. I would be fascinated to hear your opinion

Muttbuty,It seems the brora 30 just hit
the U.S I will pick up my 2nd bottle
this week so I can save one in reserve.
I look forward to passing on my notes.

I tasted it just once and it was a bit fresher and fruitier than the 2006 release which was dynamite, and a lot more tarry than this newer one. The 2007 is good whisky still.

DI BLASI, I think I'am O.K with this.
I seem to like the older smoky/peaty
Scotchs better when they are tamer.
Thank You for you comments.

Sure thing jazz lover. Makes me think of the Lagavulin 21y, a perfect example of "the older smoky/peaty" and "tamer" style, just perfect.

hi there! im newly registered here so nice to meet you all..
i have a bottle of 20 yo Chieftains Brora matured in a Cream Sherry butt. Its unlike anything else I have tried, sweet, but with a really grassy/moist-hay like nose. Has anybody else tried these bottlings, as i believe there's a few released under the Chieftains banner?....
cheers!
