Elegantly simple or simply elegant?
The Clynelish distillery was first established in 1819 by the Marquis of Stafford as an outlet for cheap grain from his tenant farms during the Highland clearances. In the mid-nineteenth century George Lawson improved and extended the distillery. In 1931 it was forced to shut down due to the recession, and full production didn’t commence until the end of World War II. The modern Cylnelish distillery was built in 1968, with a copper-domed mash tun, 8 Oregon pine wash back and 6 large stills. These two distilleries operated side-by-side until 1983, when the original distillery (from 1819) was closed. The Whisky from the original distillery was sold as Brora, a Scotch regarded highly by the Scotch fanatics.
In 2022, a special release of Clynelish 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky came out. Aged in Pedro Ximenez Oloroso seasoned casks, this expression is a radiant beauty with impeccable sweet-spicy balance. It’s medium-bodied with rich and Wine-sweet flavors balanced by peppery and oak spices. For all those moments when you want an elegant yet simple drink, just take a Whisky glass and savor it neat or with a dash of water.
