Standing on the fertile farmland of the Cawdor Estate, Royal Brackla Distillery was established in 1812 by Captain William Fraser who returned to the family farm after military service and took advantage of the fine barley it grew. Within 25 years his distillery’s reputation for spirit of sterling taste received its crowning moment when King William IV bestowed royal status to Brackla, in 1835. It thus became the first ever scotch to garner a royal warrant, a revelation that led to its nickname: The King’s Own Whisky. Traditional production techniques help to protect a distilling heritage that spans more than two centuries and preserves the unparalleled quality of a rather special spirit. To allow for the development of intriguing complexity and fruitiness, extra time is taken at the fermentation stage, which acts for up to 80 hours; far longer than most Scottish distilleries. This 16 year old release is perhaps the pick of the range and perhaps the pick of the Brackla range, with an abundance of spicy Oloroso character and plenty of flavour. Intensely fruity on the nose, aromas of dried pineapple, baked apples, brown sugar, sultanas and white chocolate are suggested. The palate is sweet and layered, with flavours of icing sugar, lemon drops, barley and citrus before finishing with a creamy and evolving length.
