Royal Brackla’s starting point for the Sherry finished Single Malt wonder.

In 1812, Captain William Fraser of Brackla House built his distillery on the grounds of Cawdor Castle — just a bit too far west to be considered a Speyside, so a Highlander it is. King William IV liked it so much he awarded them a "Royal Warrant" to keep him well supplied. Thus they became the Royal Brackla Distillery and have been called "The King’s Own Whisky" ever since. Queen Victoria renewed it in 1838. The turn of the century brought a series of acquisitions, mergers, and buy-out. It has been closed twice for major renovations and repairs, but has otherwise been in continuous operation. Formerly owned by Diageo, it became a part of the Bacardi portfolio when they acquired John Dewer & Sons in 2014.

There are three Spirits in the Royal Brackla line-up — and the twelve year-old is where they begin. Twelve years of primary aging does a world of good for this Single Malt. But that is not enough. Brackla finishes their Single Malts in premium, first-fill, Oloroso Sherry casks. And Brackla has been in such demand for blends like Dewers that they are a lesser-known brand among Single Malts. All that combines to make it a highest quality, luxurious dram and a great value.

Didn’t get much off the nose...

Didn’t get much off the nose. Faint apple, sweetness and a little yeasty. Palette was more apple with some ginger and cinnamon spice. Kind of basic.
