WHISKY TASTING NOTES
Nose: Fruit and barley springs from your glass, followed by musty oak green ferns dusted with white pepper.
Palate: A soothing balm of oak and spice that’s both rich and sweet with rock sugar, green tea and white wine.
Finish: A mellow and long finish where that rock sugar and white wine lingers alongside some dusky oak.
ROYAL BRACKLA BACKGROUND
James Augustus Grant, who in 1860 went on a journey to discover the source of the Nile, wrote to his sister that after dinner the adventurers felt: ‘as comfortable as if we had our legs under your table drinking Brackla.’ We think James’ words from Egypt are still true of Royal Brackla whisky today; it is a wonderfully tranquil and smooth single malt. A lot of Royal Brackla finds its way into blended whisky, which is why we rescued this cask for you to lean back in your chair and enjoy this delightfully mellow scotch.

About our Bottles
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.
