Description

In 1969 there was a drought on the Isle of Islay, traditional supplier of the blended whisky industry’s peated malt and a particularly important ingredient in the popular Johnnie Walker blends.  To maintain supplies, the original Clynelish distillery, built in 1819, was reopened to supply heavily peated whisky.  But as a new, larger distillery, bearing the Clynelish name, had been opened across the road the previous year, the reopened distillery, for the short time that it was in production, was renamed after the nearest town:  Brora.

This is the 2016 Annual Brora release which has been matured for 38 years. This is bottle no. 186 of 2984.

N.B. - Please note the condition of the labels and packaging and also the fill levels of any bottle before bidding.
