ROYAL BRACKLA 13 ans 2007 COLLECTIVE 4.0 48%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 58010
Located on the western boundary of Speyside, near the town of Nairn, Royal Brackla is one of Scotland’s oldest distilleries. In 1833, it was the first distillery to receive a Royal Warrant of Appointment from King William IV. The appointment was renewed 5 years later by Queen Victoria. This recognition is found at every stage of tasting this extremely complex and yet surprisingly accessible version. Luxurious, with remarkable depth, it draws on malted barley to fully express every extroverted aspect of its character, giving it a unique charm that is impossible to resist.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers.

Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
- Appearance : mahogany.
- Nose : deep, distinguished. A complex combination of dried apricot, beeswax, blood orange, precious wood, toasted walnut and dark chocolate, the first nose never stops developing. Right at this moment, noble spices (clove, cardamom, black pepper, ginger) and a very exotic rancio (lychee, mango, guava) appear alongside heady florals (carnation, peony, lavender). Allowed to breathe, notes of tobacco, leather, cocoa bean and rum baba highlight the very mature character of the aromatic palette.
- Palate : svelte, lively. The very slender attack reveals malted barley in all its splendour. Very rich, it brings to mind a delicious candied fruit cake. On the mid-palate, quince jelly and apricot and mango coulis very delicately envelope the taste buds. Indisputably ethereal, the flavour palette becomes increasingly powdery (cocoa), mentholated and honeyed (lime blossom, heather).
- Overall : long, delicate. Very delicately tannic, the start of the finish is mouth-watering. Various infusions of aromatic plants (verbena, mint) constantly refresh the palate. Praline, chestnut and candied ginger then bring lots of harmony to a finish that beams for its light and elegance. In unison, the empty glass evokes both a herbalist’s store and a carpenter’s workshop (oak, varnish, walnut stain).
- The brand
Founded in 1812, Brackla, also known under the name Royal Brackla, became the property of John Dewars & Sons Ltd (Bacardi) in 1998. In the 19th century, it was one of only three distilleries to be awarded the ‘Royal’ epithet by King William IV, and then by Queen Victoria in 1838. At the time, Brackla was extremely well-reputed. Its malt, highly-prized by blenders including Walkers and Dewars, was behind the first commercial success in the blending industry, created by Andrew Usher at the end of the 1850s.
Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.
The lineSince the dawn of time, artist collectives have been a place of exchange, inspiration and creativity. In the same way, each of the single malts found in our Artist Collective range draws the richness of their olfactory and gustatory palettes from the marriage of various casks. Devoted to diversity, every region and every style of Scottish single malt, peated and unpeated, are represented. Within this range we also find 43%, 48%, 57.1% (100 proof) and cask-strength bottlings. To illustrate the labels of the six bottlings in our first collection, La Maison du Whisky has called on contemporary artists from very different backgrounds. Each of them brings their own very personal touch that echoes the richness of the single malts selected!
