This Clynelish single malt, nicknamed ‘Apple Orchard’, was released as part of the Single Cask Collection from independent bottler Wemyss Malt. The whisky was distilled in 1995 and matured in a hogshead for over 22 years. It was bottled in 2018 at 46%. The original Clynelish distillery was founded in 1819 by the 1st Duke of Sutherland. The demand for Clynelish whisky soared during the whisky boom of the 1960s, and the distillery had to increase their production. In 1967, a new and larger distilling facility was built next to the old one. The old distillery (also known as Clynelish B) was renamed Brora and continued to operate in tandem with the new Clynelish distillery until it inevitably closed in 1983. The old Brora buildings are now used by Clynelish as a visitor center and warehouse. Only 309 bottles of Clynelish 1995 Wemyss Malts Apple Orchard have been released.
