Clynelish 14yr old
Clynelish was built in 1968 and uses (more numerous) exact replicas of the stills at Brora (now closed). It is made with some peated barley but is produced in a much lighter style that the whiskies made at Brora. They show and attractive waxy characteristic and are a perfect introduciton to peated whiskies for the enthusiast.
A classic case of a coastal Highland malt with a subtle Island character.
Appearance: Yellow gold.
Nose: Light candle wax, with some sugar. A faint floral fragrance.
Body: Firm, light to medium.
Palate: Pleasant creamy mouthfeel; maritime generally.
Finish: Some salt, dryish yet an attractive, even slightly bitter finish.see less
