Royal Brackla Cawdor Estate 12 year old Highland Single Malt
Tasting Notes: Ahh! History and Whiskey & Royalty!
Established in 1812, the Royal Brackla Distillery was granted a Royal Warrant by King William IV in 1833, and therefore bears the name “Royal” on their label as legal designation within the British monarchy. This distinction is shared only by the still currently active Royal Lochnagar and the former Glenury Royal distilleries. Of these three, Royal Brackla was the first to be granted.
