Built in the late 1960s, as a replacement for the distillery we now refer to as Brora, Clynelish has produced whisky for the Johnnie Walker range of blends ever since. Capable of producing nearly 5 million litres of spirit annually, it is one of Scotland’s larger malt distilleries. But despite this, it isn’t exactly a household name, with a relatively small percentage of its output appearing in single malt form.

Its core range begins and ends with a 14-Year-Old, occasionally supplemented with a few limited releases and a sporadically bottled double matured Distillers Edition. Thankfully, fans of the Highland distillery’s signature waxy style can experience a broader selection in the form of independent releases.


A condition report is offered as an indication of any issues visible to the naked eye. As none of our staff is a professional conservator or restorer, buyers must satisfy themselves in respect of condition. The condition report does not form part of any contract between McTear's and the buyer, and all lots are offered "as is" in accordance with our Terms of Business available on our website.
