Clynelish 14 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Tim F
A delightfully complex spicy and perfumed nose, with some floral and malty hints.
The palate is multi-layered too, with some slight citrus hints on a honey background with peat and delicious spices before a honey finish with a trace of brine.

Very complex exceptionaly crafted single malt although its only 14 years old. In the nose salty and floral, the taste is a burst of saltiness with spices and of course young flowers combined with a hint of smoke a hint of peach/green apple skin and a bit of bitter wax. Aftertaste kinda medium. A trully great single malt.
Well worth the price. Just something different and quite interesting about it. Quite light, not too full bodied but plenty going on in your mouth. Would have another bottle.
I am not an established authority such as Jim Murray or Serge Valentin but I know my single malts and hence I am well aware of the very fact that Clynelish 14 is a fantastic dram with distinct personality and it is possibly the best value single malt in the 14 YO segment, along with The Arran 14, of course. Well done, Clynelish. Strongly recommended.
An absolute cracker of a whisky. I can't add to the descriptions already put forward by previous satisfied customers, but I will say that this is a coastal beauty.
Patience... Give this one a chance to 'open up'. When you get this one home, have a wee dram. Periodically over the next 6 months, have another to assess any changes. I found that its esters will eventually reveal themselves quite nicely. This one (like Dalwhinnie 15 and Glenmorangie Original) requires patience. Alas many a bottle has been consumed before its such time and a surprisingly quality whisky undiscovered.
This is a delightful malt, more comparable to Oban than Genfiddich 15, i.e. a class above. Just a touch sweeter (yes, honey) and less salty on the finish, very classy. I cannot find a criticism at this price, but if I wanted to be picky, i'd say that the finish is a little short and (like Oban) I would have liked to taste it at higher strength, given it's smoothness the alcohol is barely noticeable.
A good whisky to leave for waiting. Probably it's an autumn dram, smooth coastal malt for the smooth september.
This is good but not as good as I expected; has a floral nose a rounded flavor and and doesn't burn to much going down. Very slight hint of smoke but honey?? nope. OK finish but didn't leave me wanting another. It's comparable to a Glenfiddich 15, not quite as smooth but a better initial taste. Maybe I'll try one of the 90's when I sober up.
This has a sweet and inviting nose with hints of plumb. The body is smooth and warm, fading to a salty finish. My one complaint is that the finish is a little short.
A bold Northern Highland Single Malt with a unique mouthfeel. Honeyed and fruity, but also slightly smoky and packing more than a decent punch at the end. The "coastal" nature opens up nicely with a drop or two of water. While this 14yo is great for its age, I wish there were more reasonably priced official bottlings of Clynelish. 8 out of 10
