Clynelish 13 YO (S. Afr. Sherry Wood)
Clynelish (South African Sherry Wood)
Distilled 1989 - 13 years old
The old distillery in existence before Clynelish was known as Brora. Unfortunately Brora was closed in 1983. Its sister distillery, Clynelish, is in production since 1968. It produces a less peaty malt than Brora, which is often named the old Clynelish.
The original distillery was established in 1819 by the Marquis of Stafford, Duke of Sutherland, to offer work for displaced crofters during the clearances. The venture was also used as an access market for his locally produced barley. Clynelish is a typical example of a coastal Highland malt from the Northeast that resembles an island malt.
