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.
The first "Islands" region whisky in Na Bràithrean collection comes from the Isle of Mull.
This Big Brother distilled at Tobermory Distillery in 2009 has spent 11 years ageing in a bourbon hogshead before being finished for ten months in a port quarter cask. All natural colour and non-chill-filtered with an outrun of 152 bottles at 51% ABV.
Maple and smoked bacon.
Fruity dark chocolate followed by a strong earthy smoked toffee.
