Sitting opposite the old Brora Distillery site, the team at Clynelish Distillery produce a 14-year-old malt that is very well-rounded. There’s a lot of different flavours and that all come together with style and grace, none overpowering another.
Appearance: Straw gold.
Nose: Heather and honey with cut grass notes.
Taste: lemon and mustard seeds with a hint of sea salt.
Finish: Sweet smokey notes linger along with toasted cereal.
Overall: A balanced malt where the peat and brine don’t compromise the sweeter, delicate fruit and floral notes.
Great summertime scotch here, with all its vibrancy the Clynelish 14 is a good choice when buying for fans of American oak-aged malts. Less influenced by darker fruit notes and tannins, this would also be enjoyed by fans of Lowland scotch.
If the person you’re buying for is a fan of the Clynelish 14, you could also try Highland Park 12, Old Pulteney 12 or Cragganmore 12.
Scotch whisky is a very broad category consisting of various styles, regions and production methods. It is unclear whether Ireland or Scotland was the first to produce whisky but it is likely that the practice became common in both countries concurrently. It is commonly thought that the knowledge of distillation was brought to Scotland (and Ireland) by monks returning from the Mediterranean and the Middle East in around 1000AD.
ABOUT THE DISTILLERY
The Original distillery was built in 1819, close the Brora in the scottish Highlands. The new Clynelish was built in 1968, opposite the old one. This reopened in 1969 and was named Brora which supplied a heavy peated malt for blending.
