At one point they wer Clynelish I and Clynelish II (which reminds me, I need to return to Callanish one of these days). Have we ever established the differences between the two, as far as still configuration and other technical aspects are concerned? Another gray area. Caol Ila was rebuilt at about the same time, but no one considers them two different distilleries; then again, I imagine they used the same stills before and after. But I don't know. Stills get replaced now and then. My head is spinning.
I'm afraid I'm missing your point. When Caol Ila was rebuilt, they were never two Caol Ilae working simultaneously. However Brora and Clynelish operated concurrently for about 15 years.
Oh, and if someone has a bottle labelled "Clynelish" from the defunct distillery now known as Brora, you're a lucky @#$%&!. Enjoy it.
