But the processes of the two sister distilleries on the same property somehow mixed up during these years and the casks were not correctly stamped to identify from which distillery (Brora or Clynelish) the spirit came from (by that time they were just named Clynelish-A and Clynelish-B): To avoid any claims Diageo decided to market all spirit from that period under the name Clynelish only (the same is true for some older vintages of Clynelish/Brora).
So let's see what the flavour/aromas profile tell us about that. I had four different old Brora from 1975 to 1982 yesterday and this one clearly fits into their profile. Yes, I am pretty sure: This spirit was distlled at the old Brora distillery... It has the same big, fat, oily and mouth-coating arrival on the palate as the four drams yesterday, the peat level compares to the 1975 Brora Rare Malt as well as the beautiful complex and balanced nose and delivery does.
So anyone that could not afford to buy the completely overprized 70ies Brora releases, simply go for this one. This is the cheapest 70ies OB Brora you can get these days (oops, I lifted a secret...but this will not help neither collectors nor investors, it is a hint for drinkers only)!
