Highland distillery Royal Brackla will relaunch its duty-free range of whiskies next year with new 12-, 18- and 21-year-old expressions.
The new range will all be matured in American oak casks and finished in a selection of first-fill ex-Sherry casks, before being bottled at 46% abv.
Royal Brackla 12 Years Old, finished in ex-oloroso Sherry casks, is said to contain ‘the full bodied spice of oloroso and the bright summer breeze of Royal Brackla’ and will be priced at US$79.99.
The range’s 18-year-old is finished in ex-Palo Cortado casks and is said to be ‘enticing and complex’ with ‘big, succulent soft fruits’ on the palate, priced at US$154.99.
Royal Brackla 21 Year Old, finished in a combination of ex-Pedro Ximénez, oloroso and Palo Cortado casks, is said to contain ‘syrupy toffee notes with richly fragrant summer berries’ and will be priced at US$279.99.
The revamped range, which replaces Royal Brackla’s original 12-, 16- and 21-year-old expressions, will be rolled out across global travel retail from Spring 2020, although China Duty Free Group will be given exclusive initial access for its stores in Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou.
