Brora 1972 Douglas Laing 29 Year Old / Old and Rare
A cask strength Brora, distilled in 1972 and bottled in 2002 at 29 years old by Douglas Laing as part of their Old and Rare Platinum Selection.
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.
