  1. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Waxy, surprisingly old-fashioned, dry floral, softwood, citrus, mineral notes, oak, grass, fresh walnuts and a hint of salt.
    • Taste
      Old-fashioned, oily onset. Somewhat dirty and earthy, root-like ginger, mandarin oranges, softwood, most fruits, rainy hay and light dried fruits.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, herbaceous, softwood.

    [April, 2011]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 69 Euro in March, 2011.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored this 85.  My notes state "drinkable but not remarkable"...

    Straw yellow and friendly shows the Royal Brackla. Aromas of grass and fruits, but also honey are on the nose. In the mouth you will find a variety of impressions, including lemon, as well as spices such as ginger. The sweet overall impression is reminiscent of an old rum. The very short finish leaves a hint of lemon.
    A very light whisky, ideal for the summer. None of the many nuances dominates. A tasty drop without putting too high demands on the connoisseur.

    Very nice dram indeed.
    • Nose
      fruity, spicy, oak, a little caramel. Maybe it's because I've just had banana and mango sorbet, but I also detect mango
    • Taste
      sweet. Birds custard! hazelnuts. very tasty
    • Finish
      Dry. The hazelnuts are here.
