This collection of three rare single malt whiskies are from the north Highland distillery of Brora, which has reopened today (May 19, 2021). The Brora Triptych is designed to celebrate the rebirth and renovation by looking back to the distillery's pre-closure days of the 1970s and early 1980s. The collection has been collated by Stewart Bowman, the Master Distiller for Brora, and Dr. Jim Beveridge, the Senior Blender for owners Diageo. They will only be sold as complete sets.
The Brora Triptych is formed of the Timeless Original 38 years old, the Age of Peat 43 years old and the Elusive Legacy 48 years old - the oldest ever official release of Brora by Diageo.
The Timeless Original was distilled in 1982 and has been matured in re-fill American oak casks. It is bottled at 47.5% ABV. The Age of Peat was distilled in 1977 and comes from a period when Brora was using heavily peated malt. It has been matured in re-fill American oak and European oak casks, and is bottled at 48.6% ABV. The Elusive Legacy was distilled in 1972 and matured in re-fill American oak and European oak casks. It is bottled at 42.8% ABV.

"When people walk into Brora distillery, we want them to feel a connection to the past; to be able to understand the history of the place and to understand why we have put the distillery back together in the way that we have. We can continue Brora's legacy for future generations."Stewart Bowman - Master Distiller at Brora.
