Royal Brackla

Royal Brackla 10 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
7 A pleasant malt, but this bottling has less structure than I remember. It is to be hoped that new owners Dewar's give more prominence to this distillery.

Whisky Magazine - Recommended - Winner

Royal Brackla 16 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 40.00%
8 Gentle and mature. The perfect dram, to unwind after a hard day at the office!

Royal Brackla 25 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 43.00%
8 More typical of the unusual hot, dry, cleansing character of this distinctive whisky.

Adelphi Royal Brackla 27 Years Old, Cask 5467
Single Malt - Scotland - 59.50%
7 The best Brackla I have tasted. Night-cap?

Cadenhead's Royal Brackla 15 Years Old
Single Malt - Scotland - 58.20%
7 Hardly elegant but a muscular malt of a style that is sadly vanishing from the Highlands. I greatly enjoyed it.

Murray McDavid Mission Royal Brackla 1975
Single Malt - Scotland - 46.00%
7 An especially rich sherryish bottling. Voluptuous. With the afterdinner chocs.
