Proof66 Notes

Ainsley Brae is a line of scotch whisky bottled to celebrate the cask. They claim to strive and find the best barrels that provide the maximum depth in flavor. The scotch itself is bottled by Alexander Murray & Company, blended and bottled from a variety of sources (we list them as the source owing to the long tradition of independent scotch bottling though Alexander Murray is a relatively new company). We have no idea, at this time, what "ainsley brae" means.

Ainsley Brae Royal Brackla scotch is aged for 12 years and sourced from the northern highlands. Royal Brackla today mostly contributes to blends of scotch. They suggest looking for flavor notes of vanilla and citrus among others.

Alexander Murray is a bottling company that often works in the private label market and special editions of a variety of distilleries. The company was founded in 2004 and is actually located in southern California founded by Steve Lipp, who was born in Scotland and claims to bring a lifetime of scotch experience to the company. The company is named for Lipp's great uncle Alexander Murray, who was born into the scotch market beginning as a producer of malted barley.

Rich and sweet, with a nice heat and spiciness that doesn't stop it from being ridiculously smooth. . I've tasted this several times, and have found something new each time I drank it. The esters seem to be such that when they break, they deliver something new each time. The last time I tasted it, I got apricot notes, but the time before that, I got marzipan and fig. Outstanding, and always a whisky that will be in my rotation.
