The Clynelish Distillery sits on the Highland’s stormy north east coast at Brora and although on the light side, Clynelish malts tend to have a hints of salty island character, they also tend to be slightly waxy. This 14 year old conforms perfectly to these Clynelish stereotypes.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/06/2015

Appearance

Clear, golden amber.

Aroma

Fudge, candle wax, brown sugar and cigar box with strong floral notes and faint clove. Water amplifies and releases strong zesty orange, biscuity malt and clove.

Taste

Zesty orange, light honey sweetness and texture with apple, blackened fruitcake, saltiness and clove spice. A splash of water makes this whisky - bring sweet apple juice to the fore.

Aftertaste

Malty, light salt and zesty orange with clove and cinnamon spiced oak.

Overall

Waxy on the nose and fabulously fruity on the palate with elegant salty clove spice. Well-balanced with something of an island style, Clynelish 14 takes a splash of water well and is great value for money.
