Brora 1982 Gordon and MacPhail
This Brora was distilled in 1982, just a year before the distillery closed. This is a Connoisseurs Choice bottling by Gordon and MacPhail.
Brora distillery, formerly known as Clynelish was initially closed after a new distillery was built next-door in 1967, and assumed the Clynelish name. The original distillery re-opened after a year's hiatus, and bottlings of the whisky it produced between then and its second closure in 1983 are now increasingly sought after.
The Connoisseurs Choice label is one of the most recognisable independent bottlings on the market. It was initially created for renowned Italian importer, Edoardo Giaccone in the early 1970s, but became a mainstay of the core Gordon & MacPhail portfolio in 1979.
Bottled in 2006 from refill sherry butts.
