Whisky Reviews for Royal Brackla 1976 McC

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.67 points

  1. Waykid scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I quite liked this, a subtle and tender one.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, flowery, sweet, apricot, beewax and floorwax.
    • Taste
      Sweet, syrupy, honey and vanilla. A nice combination of dry and flowery lowlandish like a Rosebank or,  an Imperial or Clyne with summery, sweetish and fruity style: banana, peach and cocoa. Nice bitter waxiness kind of a hazelnut.
    • Finish
      Mildish and in the same tunes.

    tasting by SV : Royal Brackla 1976/2006 (59.4%, MacKillop’s Choice, cask #6923)  This one could be another grassy monster, but maybe age smoothened it up… Colour: white wine. Nose: oh my, another grassy monster, this time with some tar and rubber instead of glue and varnish. The almonds are back as well, and so is the chalk and the menthol. It’s very straight, pleasantly austere this time, and extremely barleyish. With water: it’s become no less austere, but rather beautifully medicinal. Aspirin and antiseptic, eucalyptus syrup, and then touches of agaves. And some menthol again. Mouth (neat): huge, almost prickly, very lemony this time and massively estery (jellybeans, chewing gum). Plenty of pepper too. Not easy to quaff like that, water is obligatory. With water: a little sweeter, almondy, slightly bitter. The jellybeans have gone. Finish: long, much more on green tea again. A little lemongrass. Comments: I don’t quite know where the medicinal side came from. Maybe an ex-peater cask? That worked, in any case. SGP:462 - 83 points  02/05/2014
