A medium-peated Islay whisky.
Blended Scotch Whisky
Bottled at 40% abv, Clydebank was a standard blend that drew heavily on Auchentoshan malt. As to its other constituents and flavour profile, nothing is known.
The Clydebank blend was bottled in 1986 to celebrate the birth of the town of Clydebank near Glasgow 100 years earlier. Its owner, Stanley P Morrison Ltd, saw the expression as nothing more than a local contribution to the events surrounding the centenary. It simply came and went.
In 2011 a special bottling of Auchentoshan 12-year-old using the name was made by Morrison Bowmore Distillers in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Clydebank Blitz. Limited to just 70 bottles, proceeds from sales went to local charities.
