A Single Highland Malt Whisky from Brackla Distillery, bottled at 40%abv.The Royal Brackla whiskies were rumoured to be a favourite of Queen Victoria when she became Queen, and was one of the malts that contributed to the creation of the first blended whisky in the 1860s.
Mid amber in colour; good legs, indicating viscosity. The first impression on the nose is nutty (Brazil and Macademia nuts), giving way to vanilla sponge and baked apples (Eve’s Pudding): soft and rounded. A smooth texture; a lightly sweet taste, with some acidity. Drying in the finish with a thread of smoke and leaving a spicy aftertaste.
