2006 Infrequent Flyers Royal Brackla Single Cask No.311985 12 Year Old Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Speyside, Highlands, SCOTLAND
$170.00 Bottle
  • ABV 58.9%

Reopened in 1991 after a chequered history and presently operated by John Dewar & Sons Ltd for Bacardi, Brackla's house style typically shows fresh barley and honeyed undertones. This middle aged expression was matured in a hogshead with an outturn of 304 bottles. The 58.9% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered.

We're fortunate to have secured a very small allocation of whiskies from indie bottler, 'Infrequent Flyers'. Excess stock has become available due to the closure of bars (by excess, we mean as little as 2-3 bottles). This relatively new project is headed by industry veteran, Alistair Walker. The concept is simple - bottle high quality whiskies from lesser known distilleries that have never been widely or consistently available - hence the name ‘Infrequent Flyers’. Auchentoshan, Croftengea, Fettercairn, Glen Elgin, Islay, Orkney and Royal Brackla underline the theme of the range. There's even a single grain from a closed distillery included for good measure.

This from Maltreview.com: "There does seem to be a great deal of interest about this range, which is more affordable and better presented than many other incumbents... The Infrequent Flyers has been established by the Alistair Walker Company. You’ll recognise the surname, and indeed, this particular Walker worked with the BenRiach Company for over a decade prior to the sale to Brown-Forman. Deciding not to follow the path to Glenallachie, Alistair instead established his own company and series of independent releases."

By design, Walker doesn’t include tasting notes on his labels. For him, whisky is too subjective; "...everyone has their own opinion as to what they experience in a particular dram."

The inaugural Infrequent Flyers releases were bottled in June 2019. We have a mix of selections from both Batch 1 and Batch 2 aged from 11 years old up to 27 years old. Too limited to taste, they represent a fascinating new collection. Unless future allocations increase, it's likely you'll only be able to taste these in specialist whisky bars and restaurants.
