The eldest of three recent Royal Brackla releases, the 21 year old heads up the distillery's new single malt lineup. Touted as The King's Own Whisky since receiving a royal warrant in the early 19th century, Royal Brackla is known for both its long fermentation period and tall, slowly run stills, producing a profile rich in esters and their fruity notes.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is ripe with tropical fruits like papaya and guava, along with sherry, grassy and hay notes, and a light touch of smoke in the background. The palate offers more sherry along with an accompanying nuttiness, honey, and an overall rich, full profile, with a moderately oily mouthfeel. The finish is luxuriously rich and smooth, with caramel, more honey and sherry, and a return of those tropical fruits at the tail end, completing the cycle and asking you to start anew. "
