The eighteen year-old expression of Royal Brackla is a wonderfully smooth justification for self-indulgence.

In 1812, Captain William Fraser of Brackla House built his distillery on the grounds of Cawdor Castle — just a bit too far west to be considered a Speyside, so a Highlander it is. King William IV liked it so much he awarded them a “Royal Warrant” to keep him well supplied. Thus they became the Royal Brackla Distillery and have been called “The King’s Own Whisky” ever since. Queen Victoria renewed it in 1838. The turn of the century brought a series of acquisitions, mergers, and buy-out. It has been closed twice for major renovations and repairs, but has otherwise been in continuous operation. Formerly owned by Diageo, it became a part of the Bacardi portfolio when they acquired John Dewer & Sons in 2014.

Royal Brackla 18 Year Old is the middle child in the Royal Brackla lineup. The signature Single Malt has been painstakingly distilled slowly. Then aged for eighteen years in American oak before being allowed to finish in Palo Cortado Sherry casks. This exceptional dram is complex and succulent and smooth as glass. It’s a bottle of satisfied Scottish smiles.

Smartass Corner:
Royal Brackla was the first distillery ever granted a Royal Warrant to create Whisky for a king — in this case William IV in 1833.

Finish
The finish is long and extremely smooth.
