Brora 1972 40 Year
Peated Single Malt
Brora // Highlands, Scotland
Unveiled in 2014, this Brora 40 Year is the oldest bottling from the distillery and the most expensive ever released by Diageo. Age and rarity commands its high price as the Highland distillery was mothballed during the whisky bust of the 1980s, a similar fate of many other distilleries at the time. For years, Brora supplied heavily peated whisky to be used in blends. In 1973, production shifted to a more lightly peated-style. This limited edition expression was distilled in 1972 and was likely intended for blending. After four decades slumbering quietly in a Highland warehouse, it was bottled at its natural cask strength of 59.1%.
