Classic Clynelish from the Single Malts of Scotland - waxy, fruity and gently coastal. There have been some excellent bottlings from the mid-1990s from this distillery and this is up with the best of them.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Note by Stuart P

    Nose: The freshness of cut green apple, then that classic Clynelish waxiness takes hold, with honeyed peachiness, a little peppery spiciness and an appealing leathery note.

    Palate: Much fuller than expected, with pink peppercorns and burnt sugar taking charge. The addition of water brings out lighter, cleaner flavours, as well as malty, biscuity notes. A lot going on here.

    Finish: Powerful and spicy – but clean and precise – and long lasting.

  • Producer's Notes

    Nose: Custard and crunchy apples, followed by signature notes of waxed jackets and a background peppercorn spice. With time, maple, runny honey and warm spice appear.

    Palate: Biscuity, like custard creams, and full on the palate, with delicate spice that lifts the sweeter notes which are balanced against zesty citrus fruit.

    Finish: A touch of chilli warmth lingers, while the rich texture allows more subtle brown sugar touches to come through.

    A great dram, one of the better Clynelish I have tried. You could do a lot worse even at double the price - so do yourself a favour and buy it.

    My Father bought me a bottle of this home to Australia from a recent trip overseas. I am still a novice when it comes to whisky but I can say I have never tried anything like this before. Its a lovely drop, I could just sit and nose it all night. I only have a little bit at a time on special occasions, with close friends,a little goes a long way.
