Mossburn Royal Brackla Single Malt 2008
Royal Brackla Single Malt selected and bottled by Mossburn Distillers – 70cl at 45% Vol. No. 9 in the Mossburn Vintage Casks series.
One of Scotland’s older distilleries, Brackla was founded in 1817. The current distillery production is modelled around a medium fermentation, with the wash and low wines being forced through upwards-angled lyne arms giving abundant reflux and plentiful ester. The ten years ageing in refill Hogsheads allow the fresh, fruity original spirit to shine on the nose, while the palate adds some vanilla, baked apple and caramel malt.
