The original Clynelish was established in 1819 by the Marquess of Stafford to create a market for the barley produced on his lands. Across the road is the Clynelish we know today, which was built in 1968 to make room for the larger, more modern neighbour. Old Clynelish lived on as Brora for a time, before closing in the early 80s.
Clynelish whisky is closer to an Island style than other mainland malts, with a complex and fragrant nose and an agreeable long finish that leaves a lingering fresh-fruity flavour. This 14 year old is a less heavyweight whisky that's deliciously drinkable and makes a great aperitif.
Nose: Light candle wax, with some sugar. A faint floral fragrance.
Palate: Pleasant creamy mouthfeel; maritime generally.
Finish: Some salt, dryish yet an attractive, even slightly bitter finish.
