Royal Brackla was the very first Scottish distillery to receive 'royal' status when, in 1833, it was bestowed upon them by King William IV. A 2015 release as part of the Last Great Malts series, Royal Brackla 12 Year Old is finished in first-fill Oloroso sherry casks for a luxurious, regal feel. On the nose we get florentine, slightly leafy with ginger. Pain au chocolat, baking spices and gateau on the palate with a milk chocolate dusting to finish with apple sweets. A distinguished malt, bow down in its presence!
