Clynelish 1972 23 Year Old Rare Malts Selection 75cl / 57.1%
A limited edition bottle of Clynelish 23 Year Old, distilled in 1972 and bottled for Diageo's now-discontinued Rare Malts Selection.
The Rare Malts were a series of cask strength whiskies first released in 1995 by DCL (later to become part of Diageo).
This is bottle number 1086.
The Clynelish distillery we know today was built in 1968 alongside the original Clynelish, which was subsequently renamed Brora. The distillery was owned by Distillers Company Limited (later United Distillers then Diageo), and the malt, known for its waxy character, has played an important role in the Johnnie Walker blends. Some 1970s vintages were bottled as part of the Rare Malt Selection in the 1990s, the official Clynelish 14 Year Old was launched in 2002, and the no-age-statement Select Reserve joined the Special Releases roster in 2014.
