Clynelish 14

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.

Reviews for Clynelish 14 Year Old
Neither as full nor as deep as it should be
I breathed this for 6 days then had it neat in a burgunder and a Glencairn.
I strongly suspect these casks have been used at least twice, possibly three times as there is precious little to show for 14 years in a barrel. This is disappointingly thin and harsh.
“Flagship Expression”?
Don’t insult my intelligence.
I despair at the state of the Scottish whisky industry. I now mostly drink Cognac and Bourbon because of this

Brilliant
Nice, sherried coastal Highlands scotch. You can only taste the peat if you concentrate on it. Great, complex flavour, definitely get the zest and waxiness. Long finish. I have mine sometimes with 1/3 of a teaspoon of Laphroaig to add the peatiness to it (trust me). Great whisky and I recommended it - the only shame it is owned by greedy company such as Diageo.

LOL at the person complaining about "chill filtered"
Someone said "Feels just like another chill filtered..." - you do realise that chill filtering cannot be detected via taste, and nobody can detect a chill filtered vs non chill filtered whisky in blind tasting? Stop falling for marketing rubbish, especially foreign people outside of Scotland. They put "non chill filtered" on the label to increase the price. That is all.

Love It.
Clynelish has been prone to be a little patchy over the last few years and has taken a bit of a hiding from Its devotees, who long for the dram of old. As it’s always been one of my go to malts I can completely empathise with the disappointees, however, I think one had to be realistic. It has long been sold below its actual worth point and for many years we were used to getting a malt that could easily have commanded a sizeable percentage more. It seems to be back in the game now though and I have to tip my hat to Diagio for not completely ruining it, as we have seen with so many acquired great malts. Cask provision is also an issue currently and has been for some time. Sadly, they just don’t make em like they used to. I very much enjoyed this bottle and am old and ugly enough to remember the terrible decline in quality we suffered in the 80’s. Apologies from this old codger for running on. What I’m trying to say Is, try a bottle, even at fifty quid it still punches well above its weight and I’d truly a baby Brora.

Unique
I've been thinking about clynelish 14 for a long time. Somehow it's been dodging me but finally got some.
On the nose I get mandarin and fruits in general. On the palate it's crisp, quite a bit oak and little bit of peppery fell. Finish is medium lond with nice creamy feel to it.

All and all I can see why many say good things about this whisky. Considering the price it's very good whisky and love having this non NAS whiskys where the years have created a taste of its own. Usually I'm an Islay whisky maniac so not my kinda whisky but I still like it. Unique taste I say.

One of my favorites
Medium/light peat and nice smoke. Nice fruit and a little oily.

Liked it
Complex, delicious and oily. A couple drops of water and a few minutes on the glass really help this expression.

Get two
Clean and crisp spicy and slightly waxy. Clementines tangerines and orange juice from the nose throughout the development with hints of lemon brownies and simple smoke. The smoke and spice and bit of bitter at the end highlights the lengthy flavour profile of this terrific scotch.

one of my number ones as a veteran scotch lad
graham cracker and digestive cookie , sweet cereal and marshmellow hint of honey dew on the nose, vegetal sweet and grassy, sour note, numbing and oily, spearmint notes, citrus orange and dark choc, mellon and rind bitter note, after 10 minutes on the palate

last words-complex and well balanced covering large portions of the flavour wheel- sweet salty sour smoky chilli pepper, spicy lip smacking full mouth from lips to tongue to cheeks , spicy sweet and salty finish slightly smoky, numb and dry hangs on forever

takes a full 20 minutes to appreciate- profile is understated on the box!

Fresh, sweet and citrus
Marzipan and citrus on the nose, silky smooth on the palette with a drop of lemon.
No hint of peat for me.
