Highlands : Clynelish & Brora

March 2017

[This is a continuation of my March 2017 trip to Scotland — see overview here.]

I had not originally planned to visit Clynelish as I did not know much about Brora or Clynelish. Fortunately I was able to book a Brora Tour at short notice and showed up. Turned out to be a good idea!

The distillery visit is a blend of old and new. While Clynelish Distillery is undergoing major construction (almost finished by the time I visited — March 2017), Brora tour looked at buildings that seemed to be frozen in 1983!
Talk about extremely rare! Smoked Pineapple!
Then followed Clynelish — Select Reserve, 2nd Edition 2015 release and 14 year old.
The Distillery-exclusive edition, and the 12 rounded out the selection.
Scotch Aficionado was here!

Yvonne was a wonderful hostess and I felt so glad I made the impromptu plan to visit Clynelish!
