The Classic Clynelish.
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.
Clynelish 14 Years Old is the distillerie's standard expression. It was matured for 14 years, which is an optimimum level for this one. It's the classic Clynelish; like the 16 year old for Lagavulin, the Quarter Cask for Laphroaig. Made in Highland, with a coastal influence, a great value for your money.

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Clynelish 14 Year Old Single Malt Coastal Highland Scotch Whisky and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.
We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.
