What's in a name? Royal Brackla 1998 (bottled 2014) - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Royal Brackla 1998 (bottled 2014) - Connoisseurs Choice (Gordon & MacPhail) whiskey, rather than whisky.
Nose: Warming toasty notes, rich malt and red berries. There's even a suggestion of tropical fruit in there too.
Palate: Chocolate orange, pear and cracked black pepper.
Finish: A creamy, medium length finish.
Overall: Top stuff from Royal Brackla.
