Brora 1972 Douglas Laing 31 Year Old / Old and Rare
One of Brora distillery's legendary 1972 vintages. This was bottled in 2003 by Douglas Laing for their Old & Rare range, when it was still part of their portfolio. The label has been bottled by Hunter Laing since 2013.
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.
Brora closed again in 1983 and has become increasingly sought after since, especially these heavily peated vintages.
Bottle 216 of 221.
