The current Clynelish site is actually the sister of the original Clynelish built back in 1819. Back in the 1960s whisky demand was sky high so Clynelish opened their B distillery (the one that is still operational today) and ran the two together. Once the B distillery was humming along they closed down their A distillery. At around the same time Caol Ila had to close its doors and Johnnie Walker was looking for another peated whisky to fill the gap in its blends. Step up to the plate…Clynelish! If you want to enjoy Clynelish as a single malt though, like this Clynelish 31 Years Old Signatory Vintage Cask Strength Collection 1990, then luckily we have great independent bottlers like Signatory Vintage to bring it to our shelves. Matured in bourbon barrels 3689 & 3690 and bottled in 2022, only 197 bottles were produced so it won’t be around for long.
