Clynelish 1965 Signatory Vintage 28 Year Old

Signatory Vintage were established in 1988 by Andrew Symington and are one of Scotland's most prolific independent bottlers. Their offices and bottling facility are located next to Edradour distillery, which they have also owned since 2002.

This is a 1965 vintage Clynelish, bottled from a sherry cask in 1993.

Clynelish distillery as it is recognised today, was built in 1967 to replace the smaller distillery next-door, which was the original site of that name. The first distillery was closed, but later re-opened, changing its name to Brora (but that’s another story). Clynelish is part of the Diageo stable, having been taken over by DCL in 1912. Despite being an important part of the Johnnie Walker blends, it has long been bottled as a single malt.

This will contain pre-closure single malt from the original Clynelish. This distillery was closed in 1968, re-opening as Brora the following year to produce heavily peated whisky for the DCL blends after a drought on Islay left them short of stock. Clynelish single malts from the first distillery are particularly revered.
