Single Cask Club - Tasting Notes

August 2022

Month 9

So, the Ardent Royal Brackla was quite the banger wasn’t it! This month I’ve got another Royal Brackla as I thought it would be good to show the true heart of the spirit before being piled on with sherry. 2 from the Douglas Laing Provenance range this month, given this heat currently they are 2 perfect summer drams.
Dram 1 - Royal Brackla 8 Year old from Provenance by Douglas Laing
Distilled in March 2013 and bottled December 2021 having spend 8 loving years in a Refill Butt its given all the soft sherried notes with less weight. 913 bottles was the outrun once at 46% ABV. 

Tasting notes; 

Nose - Fresh and sweet malted barley, candied orange, white pepper and marshmallow. 
Palate - Really creamy with honey covered brioche buns, caramel chews and sweet-meal biscuits 

Finish - Green apples, candy floss, cinnamon buns and freshly baked buttery biscuits.

Dram 2 -Orkneys Finest 8 Year Old - (Highland Park)

This comes from the Coastal Collection of the Provenance Range, this is an extension from Douglas Laing for the drams that really have a seaside edge to them. Distilled in April 2014 and bottled in May 2022 from a refill Hogshead producing 379 bottles, this has a glorious Orkadian Seaside sweetness to it.  

Tasting Notes
Nose: Shows a gristy/creamy style initially leading to washed up seaweed and candied lemon peel 

Palate: Has a wonderful peppery warmth alongside thick, salted caramel and burnt butter toast 

Finish: Brings a tinge of smoke with tinned peaches in syrup and baking spice.
