Category: Highland single malt whisky
Product of: United Kingdom
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.

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