Brora 1972 Rare Malt 22 Year Old / 61.1%
The Rare Malt Selection is a historic selection of single malt whiskies from operational and lost distilleries that were released by Diageo between 1995 and 2005.
It is often said that 1972 Brora is exceptional. There are five Rare Malt Brora 1972 and this is an example of one of them. The 1972 continued to be an important vintage when Diageo released the 40 year old with the same vintage.
The formerly named Clynelish distillery 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.
Since its closure in 1983 the popularity of Brora has soared, this is a fantastic opportunity to own an historic bottle.
