Tasting Notes

  • 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.

    A really underrated whisky, in my humble opinion, and full of paradox: refined and firm, complex and subtle, spicy and delicate. And somehow never quite the same twice. And a bargain to boot

    Very agreeable. Bright, rich golden colour. An aromatic, spicy nose - somewhat earthy. The palate is superb - a wildflower honey & citrus taste to begin with, giving way to a waxy, slightly peated taste. I particularly enjoy the fiery mouthfeel, which vanishes as you swallow - very smooth on the way down, leaving a light zesty finish, which is also somehow wonderfully salty. I was fortunate enough to visit Brora and the distillery over the summer - highly recommended tour. Overall a wonderful whisky best kept for long, dark, cosy nights with an improving book, a cigar and a log fire.

    Strong alcohol on the nose, with a hint of summer fruits. Fruit continues on the palate with slight dryness and reasonable length. An easy drinking start to the evening. A few drops of water adds sweetness on the palate but reduces the length.

    This is one of the best drams on the market. Every time I drink it it with water it reveals something new and delicious.

    A big, big dram. Recent bottlings of Clynelish 14 are superb, non-chill filtered, very less colour, and such great complexity. It can take a lot of water and its the kind of malt that keep giving more and more layers, just fantastic.

    This is a delicious coastal whisky that all malt lovers should really try. Coastal malt should be a category to itself or at least a style that gets more recognition. Think Oban, Old Pulteney and Talisker. This fits in well. On the nose you get heavy malt mixed with fruit and sea air. The palate is really interesting. The mouthfeel is oily with a lot of fruit, salted caramel and spice. The finish is unique as well. It is briny and drying with a waxy feel. There is so much going on here. Heavy malt. Salty and sweet. Nice spice and fruit underlying. I highly recommend this stuff. Put less into blends and more onto the shelves of liquor stores

    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.

  • Scotch fan 23 September 2013

    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.

  • Grant Melville, Falkirk 14 December 2012

    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.

  • Lord of the Malt 18 November 2012

    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.

  • Tudval 10 August 2012

    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.
