Royal Brackla 16 is the middle child of three Royal Brackla single malts released in 2015. The distillery's famed heritage includes receiving a Royal Warrant of Appointment in 1835 from King William IV. Production includes a lengthy fermentation period of 80 hours, tall stills set to run slowly, and after initial oak maturation finishes its aging in oloroso sherry butts.

Tasting Notes

"A veritable bouquet and fruit basket on the nose, with honey, flower buds, peaches, melons, papaya, and a sweet fruity note which suggests tropical fruit bubblegum. The palate starts dry, with grass and hay, before turning richer, with a malty sweetness, cereal, walnuts, and dates. It moves into a smooth, sweet finish with caramel, prunes, nuts, and chocolate."
