Like many whisky geeks I REALLY enjoy Brora and this Brora 30 Years is, obviously, no exception. Because of its crisp and balanced nature it’s gained a legendary status and cult following throughout the whisky community along with its more oily and brooding step-sibling Port Ellen. Between the two I’m more of a Port Ellen… Continue!
Coming across bottles of The Dragon Orkney Pure Malt is no small feat.
