Clynelish 14 Year Old Highland single malt Scotch whiskey. A well-rounded, classy single malt with a full gold colour suggesting a significant contribution from the wood.
Firm, light to medium body. Pleasant mouthfeel, not as waxy as some expressions; maritime generally. On the palate is some salt in the aftertaste; dryish, even slightly bitter finish.
Clynelish Distillery is a malt whisky distillery situated at Brora on the Sutherland coast in Scotland’s Highland whisky region. The original Clynelish Distillery was founded in 1819 by the Marquis of Stafford and a new Clynelish Distillery was built in 1967 close-by the original. The new distillery has been enlarged in recent years and is now a major contributor to the Johnnie Walker range of blended Scotch. Visitors are welcomed at Clynelish Distillery Visitor Centre which offers tours around the new distillery and the opportunity to view parts of the original Clynelish Distillery.
