The distillery set-up is all about creating and then capturing esters – the fermentation is long, the lyne arms of the stills are angled upwards, the copper conversation a long one, the reflux plentiful. As well as having this fresh, perfumed fruitiness Brackla also possesses a clean acidity, and it is this which allows it to cut though the powerful flavours given during aging in ex-Sherry casks, the maturation style chosen by Dewar’s for its single malt releases.
Nose: Lightly spicy nose with hints of green peppercorn. Hints of banana lurking in the background.
Palate: Fruity notes of stewed plums and dry sherry. Not overly sweet. Prune and baked fig on the back palate.
Finish: Medium length, tannic dryness lasts into the finish with dark chocolate nibs arriving late.
