Clynelish 1972 Helmsdale 27 Year OId
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 1925. Despite being an important part of the Johnnie Walker blends, it has long been bottled as a single malt.
This unique bottle of malt was selected by the Helmsdale bar of Tokyo, Japan. The whisky was distilled in November 1972 and aged for 27 years in single hogshead #14281 before being bottled in September 2000.
One of only 173 bottles.
