product Details

Clynelish 1965 Cadenhead's 24 Year Old

Cadenhead's are Scotland's oldest independent bottler, operating for over 175 years, but perhaps none of their bottlings are as sought after as these 'dumpy' style bottles. All of these were produced with brown glass and an iconic black label, with each distillery given its own letterpress font in homage to William Cadenhead's early career in the printing business.

This was distilled in 1965 and bottled in July 1989. It 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.

There are versions of this release with a white Sestante label as well. Sestante founder, Ernesto Mainardi, has disputed their authenticity however, so how they came about remains a mystery!
