Clynelish is the successor to the now-silent Brora, built opposite the original distillery and producing a top-quality rich, smoky dram. One of the best entry-level proprietary bottlings available from any distillery.

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.

    Smooth and balanced. Complex fruity and spicy, subtle taste which pleasantly lingers. Not smoky at all but spicy nose like Talisker. I like it neat or with just a bit of water.

    This is a classy fruity and spicy whisky that kicks above it’s retail price. The finish is one of the best ever – unbelievably smooth.

    Fruity with apple-like tone. Not to much sherry cask. Absolutely great! Can't buy it in Sweden. Don't know why. Sven J.

    I've read rave reviews about this one but still find one common thread: confusion. It is all things to all people and does not have a signature characteristic. No smoke. Plenty spice. Plenty fruit. Plenty ethanol. No oomph. It is a dram that demands your attention if its picking out the flavour that you're after. I committed sacrelige and added cola to enhance the flavour. I honestly get why this thing gets thumbs up but I think you're better off with a Talisker 10 or a Balvenie 12 Doublewood. Dilute the Clynelish expertly and it opens up in an amazing way.

    So glad I finally discovered Clynelish 14. It has that warm, deep, honey-rich flavor similar to Oban 14 and Dalwhinnie 15. Definitely love these coastal highland single malts!

    I think I got a bad bottle, kept right at the top of the shop shelves near the lighting at the local. Cracked cork, the lid at the top of the presentation box was almost fused to it. Cracked cork :( Managed to salvage the liquid through a sieve and a decanter and then back into the bottle. Lidded it with a reusabld wine stopper. My bottle has a strong ethanol punch on the nose and is very, very, VERY spicy, fruity and oaky all at the same time. Very confusing if yout standard is a gentle Speysider but fantastic nonetheless. No peat but I get bitter wood and strong honey. Not sure if it was the storage. Water, thankfully, rounds it out. Superlative.

    Please don’t go buy this so that there is more for me and the price stays cheap? If I would have picked a whisky of the year for 2017, this would have been it. Check out review of it on YouTube-Keith-“The Malted Man Cave”

    A superb whisky in an understated, unfashionable bottle at agreat price. Hope it stays that way.

    My third bottle in last couple of years. This might be my favorite (with Bunnahabain). Worth every penny!

    Take your time with this malt, let it develop in the glass, add a little water and you'll be awarded for your patience. Slainte

    Needs time opened, a couple of weeks or more, to show at its best. Then it is really excellent. Malt, spice, coastal notes, honey. Excellent.

    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
