Clynelish 14 Bottling Note

A coastal and peaty single malt, the flagship expression from Clynelish boasts a fabulous flavour profile filled with its distinctive waxy notes. Clynelish is the successor to Brora which closed in 1983, which it is built opposite. A well rounded Highlander, though this expression is a bit less peaty than the Brora bottlings of yore.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Zesty, mandarin, tangerine. Smoky.

Palate: Quite light, great clarity. Orange, soft acidity. Dry oak. Mixed fruits, vanilla, leather.

Finish: Quite long, bitter sweetness developing, spicy oak.

Clynelish 14 Year Old Reviews

Oak and citrus forward.

Tuath glass shows chestnut oloroso sherry. The nose shows a lot of rich citrus and vanilla. The palate is vanilla forward with a light backbone of citrus with hints of honey and just a whisper of smoke. Moderate alcohol burn.

After 2 drops of water - more oak and citrus. Excellent

Easy drinking and undemanding

Approachable, light, fruity, bitter orange oil, red apple, the lightest touch of burnt sugar. Finish is raw cookie dough. Easy drinking, well balanced, complex enough to engage but not so demanding that you spend all evening nosing a single glass, a good session whisky.
No idea where "The Chaps at Master of Malt" are finding the peat, maybe it's all that smoke they're blowing...

Delightful discovery!

Not unlike a good Irish whisky. Clynelish supplies a lot of single malt whisky to Johnnie Walker, but this 14 year old single malt rewards the patient taster with a lovely sonata that develops engagingly over the course of an hour. Nose: Opens with a distinctive buckwheat honeycomb, but as it breathes, settles into a sweet, "waxy" honeysuckle that matures into a delicate orange blossom taffy over time. A sensitive nose might recognize larchwood from the backwash. Palate: Charming and seductive, especially if tickled with a sliver of ice. Buckwheat honey, black pepper, and persimmon wood. "Peat" lovers will be disappointed, but it's no more than they deserve. A good Cuban cigar made the most of this outstanding spirit's sweetness. Like a good cognac, should be decanted for fullest experience. Will broaden the horizons of anyone with a real interest in exploring the complex world of whisky.

A favorite here at Bob's Bar.

Wonderful malt from an excellent distillery. Visited a few years ago. Across the way Brora still stands, hauntingly beautiful.

Not Disappointed!

I recently purchased a bottle of Clynelish 14 year old after reading several glittering reviews. I was not disappointed! This whisky has shot into my top 5 and is a steal for its age. If you are a fan of Old Pulteney this is a must try.

10 to Springbank is far more interesting and $10 less !

Just tried this based on a Ralfi review. Not dissatisfied but not quite as good as I expected. Also watched several other reviews and all mentioned a great balance of sweetness, deep fruit, caramel etc and the right balance of peat. But I'm not noticing any peat at all. Reminds me more of a 12 yo Bunnahabhain. Even with the addition of water it's still not bringing up anything that interesting for the price. $ 75.oo here in Florida. Hoping it develops in the bottle as the oxygen works.

Yes yes yes!

One of my favourites, really a great whisky. Complex and interesting, for some reason it seems to have changed character a bit every time I come back to it. But always very very good though.

The rich and full mouthfeel is simply amazing.

Highly recommended.
