Na Bràithrean [na brah-rin] means “the brothers” in Scottish Gaelic. They search hard for the right mother cask to split into a pair of unique Single Malt Scotch Whiskies. Each brother is finished independently, using different kinds and sizes of barrels to shape the flavour. The end product is two bottles of the same spirit with different personalities and characteristics.
This Big Brother distilled at Glenburhie Distillery in 2011 has spent 10 years ageing in a bourbon barrel before being finished in a Pinot Noir Ex-Islay cask. All-natural colour and non-chill-filtered.
Oak and pepper lead on the nose, with oak continuing on the palate with a hint of sweet, dark fruits. Complex combination of smoke and black pepper on the finish.
