Royal Brackla 12 Year was the very first Scottish distillery to receive ‘royal’ status when, in 1833, it was bestowed upon them by King William IV. Most of the distillery’s production goes into Dewar’s blends, but as with other Dewar’s distilleries a single malt range has been launched as part of the Last Great Malts. For the Royal Brackla, Oloroso casks have been used for a luxurious, regal feel, with beautiful packaging to match.

This 12 year old Highland single malt Scotch whisky proudly bears the title of “The King’s Own Whisky,” emblazoned across its label. Perspective is always key when evaluating anyone else’s appraisal of anything. After all, a great many Americans would see a king as just another dude, albeit with a stinkingly different bank account.

However, the royal connection with this single malt goes somewhat beyond an individual endorsement. Established in 1812, the Royal Brackla Distillery was granted a Royal Warrant by King William IV in 1833, and therefore bears the name “Royal” on their label as legal designation within the British monarchy.

This distinction is shared only by the still currently active Royal Lochnagar and the former Glenury Royal distilleries. Of these three, Royal Brackla was the first to be granted. The warrant was renewed in 1838 by Queen Victoria.

A 2015 release as part of the Last Great Malts series, Royal Brackla 12 Year Old is finished in first-fill Oloroso sherry casks and is light and spicy with notes of vanilla and black pepper.

Nose:

Florentines, Coco Pop cakes, slightly leafy, more ginger. A drop of water brings out more green apple and toasted almond.

Palate:

Pain au raisin. Pain au chocolat. Baking spices and gateau.

Finish:

Milk chocolate dusting (not cocoa) and a hint of fizzy apple sweets.

Overall:

A distinguished Oloroso cask matured malt.
