Brora 40 Years Old 1972
The first ever 40-year-old bottling from the long-closed distillery of Brora in Sutherland, Scotland. Taken at natural cask strength from a single cask distilled a generation ago, the fine pale gold malt in this exquisite decanter is a proud and rare survivor of another age. The decanter bears the golden emblem of the Scottish Wildcat, a now endangered species, which featured on the family crest of the distiller's founder, the Duke of Sutherland.
The rare expression has been drawn from what Diageo considers to be “the most brilliant of its highly-peated bottlings”, the 1972 reserve, and has a natural cask strength of 59.1%.
Limited to only 160 bottles, which are presented in a handcrafted wooden case, created by the Queen’s cabinetmakers at N.E.J. Stevenson Ltd.
