Whisky Reviews for Royal Brackla 1970 GM

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

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    N: Familiar, generic old style ’70’s nose. Not much clarity at all but pleasant enough in general. Some charred wood oil and mouldy sweet chestnuts offer a touch of complexity, but its very slight and there’s a touch of smelly feet as is occasionally customary from these generic 70’s ‘drinking fodder’ malts.

    T: Sweet, fizzy and prickly caramel spirit with murky honeyed oak. Theres a hint of almond/marzipan on the arrival.

    F: Snooker chalk, roasted honey-glazed artichokes {wow, Serge got those too!] and a surprising rally of chocolate [sherried] raisins at the end.

    C: Arguably drinkable, next.

    Scores an N

    SECOND SAMPLE

    N: Artificially sweetened crab apples, [mouldy] chestnut & apple jam and an industrial fruit/chemical bitter=sweet ‘strangeness’.

    T: Fizzy, sharp arrival with a fusty wood & old caramel and wax development.

    F: Crab apples and oaky caramel reside.

    C: The last time i tasted this i noted it as ‘arguably drinkable’ and scored it a ‘near miss’ accordingly. This time round i can’t be so generous.

    No score
