Royal Brackla 12 year old
Royal Brackla was an often forgotten distillery for many years despite it's royal warrant, almost all of its production being used for blending. But with Bacardi's acquistion of Royal Brackla they very quickly released it as a single malt in it's own right, and we think they have done pretty well.
A very personal note, but the nose is like opening a new cannister of tennis balls, together with a gentle, sweet grassyness. The palate is slightly dry with warm spice, treacle toffe and dried fruits.
