Brackla Distillery was founded in 1812 by Captain William Fraser and in 1835 became a whisky supplier to the court of king William IV, who awarded it with Royal Warrant. In 1943 the distillery was acquired by SMD, a subsidiary of DCL, which increased the number of stills from two to four. Currently the distillery is owned by Bacardi and produces roughly 4 million liters of spirit per annum. Royal Brackla is a main component of Dewar’s brand; we can still find it in the formula of Johnnie Walker Gold Label. In the 20th Century Brackla bottlings were pretty rare. The 1970 Vintage expression was bottled at natural strength of 57% abv in 1986 for Zenith-Italia. Only 3600 bottles were produced.

Palate: quite powerful, slightly spirity, lots of fruit again, peaches, pineapple, kiwi, pepper and pretty strong oaky and grassy notes.
Finish: fairly long, peppery with notes of licorice and cinnamon.
