Royal Brackla was the very first Scottish distillery to receive 'royal' status when, in 1833, it was bestowed upon them by King William IV. Most of the distillery's production goes into Dewar's blends, but as with other Dewar's distilleries a single malt range has been launched as part of the Last Great Malts. For the Royal Brackla Oloroso casks have been used for a luxurious, regal feel, with beautiful packaging to match.
Nose: Florentines, Coco Pop cakes, slightly leafy, more ginger. A drop of water brings out more green apple and toasted almond.
Palate: Pain au raisin. Pain au chocolat. Baking spices and gateau.
Finish: Milk chocolate dusting (not cocoa) and a hint of fizzy apple sweets.
Overall: A distinguished Oloroso cask matured malt.
