    Royal Brackla popped on my radar with a very interesting v&m bottling and I noticed quite a Salty note with this whisky. So when the Whiskybroker offered this bottle it was clear to me that I have to buy this.

    The color is what you'd expect from a bourbon cask with no further ado let's get it started.

    It is a great whisky and a great price to performance ratio. Love!

      Lovely speyside nose!

      It starts out with vanilla, pears, apricots, Elderflower, fresh cut grass and has a slightly lingering oak note in the background which is really well integrated and call me nuts but I get a nice salty seaweed note in the back. To sum it up it is quite bourbony sweet.

      Very sweet again, is this an Irish whisky? Vanilla, maple Sirup dominate the mouth this is then followed up a light oak spicyness pears and very ripe apricots.

      Damn this is smooth and I can keep it in my mouth forever without water and without burning.

      This is where it drops a wee bit off. Still impressive though. Lot of vanilla but quite dry and oaky, slightly bitter with honey Elderflower and there is the Salty note I had in the nose. Amazing.
