Founded in 1812 by Captain William Fraser, ROYAL BRACKLA’s regal malt has a remarkable history. The distillery itself is over two centuries old and its malt’s nickname of ‘The King’s Own Whisky’ stems from its distinction as the first single malt to be granted a royal warrant. High-grade barley, flawless water from the Cawdor Burn and slow distillation produce a truly refined spirit, before it’s matured in the finest first-fill oloroso sherry casks. This rich, robust whisky offers muscovado sweetness, dates and walnuts within its opulent, sherried depths.

ROYAL BRACKLA 16 YEARS OLD

Colour: deep copper. On the nose: a lot fruitier than the 12. Really very nice. Apricots, figs, toffee, something akin to an over-ripe banana (which is nice!), slightly waxy and yes, dried fruits. Distant note of green apples.

In the mouth: strong sherry notes showing, and again the flavours from the nose, but it’s really delightful. Touches of old wood, pencils, cardboard, leather and tobacco are in the distance, but the sultanas come to the fore.

Yes. I could quite happily buy a bottle of this. Again, not massively complex, but it’s just very tasty, classy and perhaps regal as opposed to some bruising sherry-bomb. And yet again, not much ABV but still packs a punch. If you like The Dalmore, you’ll enjoy this. In the mouth: again, a very nice balance and medium texture. Malty, blood oranges, a touch of grapefruit-like acidity, and many of those notes from the nose start to show through again.
