Brora 1972 Rare Malt 22 Year Old / 60.02%
The Rare Malt Selection is a historic selection of single malt whiskies from operational and lost distilleries that were released by Diageo between 1995 and 2005.
It is often said that 1972 Broras are exceptional, and there are five in the rare Malt series. This one of the rarer examples, bottled at 60.02%. The 1972 continued to be an important vintage when Diageo released the 40 year old with the same vintage.
Brora was reopened after a brief hiatus in 1969 to produce heavily peated single malt for blending, owing to a shortage in Islay spirit caused by drought that year. Vintages from 1973 onwards reverted the lighter peated Highland style. The distillery, formerly known as the original Clynelish, has been closed since 1983.
