Royal Brackla was my first introduction to single malt, after a brief foray with the likes of Cardhu in the 1970's, but hadn't been able to find it since 1995 so I was pleased to find this bottling. Think I detected a little phenol in the nose. Citrus hints, sweeter and lighter than the early 1980's distillations I remember. A nice revisit but think I will stick to the Glenlivets as they are more complex.
