Clynelish whisky is closer to an Island style than other mainland malts, with a complex and fragrant nose and an agreeable, long finish that leaves a lingering fresh-fruity flavour. This 14-year-old is a less heavyweight whisky that's deliciously drinkable and makes it an excellent aperitif.
Clynelish serves as one of the four primary distilleries for the blends of Johnnie Walker.
Firm, light to medium.
Wax comes up with water – scented candle wax. Dried flowers on a beach. Later, brown sugar.
Pleasant creamy mouthfeel; maritime generally.
Some salt, dryish yet an attractive, even slightly bitter finish.
"A nose that is fragrant, spicy and complex, with candle wax, malt and a whiff of smoke. Notably smooth in the mouth, with honey and contrasting citric notes, plus spicy peat, before a brine and tropical fruit finish."
Gavin D Smith, Malt Whisky Yearbook 2015, p.96
