Description

There is some confusion by many regarding Brora distillery, it was originally named Clynelish when production began. Its speciality is a heavily peated malt. A second distillery was built next door, to which is now called Cylnelish.

Some rebranding gave the original distillery the name Brora.

This fantastically rare malt whisky was distilled in 1972 before being aged for 40 years. This fine spirit was then bottled into a beautiful crystal decanter featuring the Brora wildcat. At the time this bottle was released, it was the oldest that the silent distillery had released. An incredibly rare bottling, this is one of only 160 produced.
