This 34-year-old Highland single malt, distilled in 1982, is an elegant and restrained take on Brora’s characteristic waxy and smoky notes. Expect waxed apples, damp straw and fruity dark chocolate, accompanied by unusual notes of Szechuan pepper, all wreathed in gentle smokiness.
Ribald cassis and prune aromas ride alongside oak and liquorice tones. The full palate is dense in flavours of blackberry, molasses, chocolate and coffee, followed by mocha explosion on the finish. 100% Malbec.
Marvellously refreshing gin all the way from Japan! Produced by Chugoku Jozo (the same folks behind the Togouchi) at its Sakurao distillery, Sakurao Japanese Dry Gin is made with a selection of local botanicals including yuzu, Japanese cypress, oyster shell and cherry blossom, alongside some traditional important ingredients like juniper and coriander.
