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.

One of my favorite go to whiskies. Always satisfying bold flavors. Not for the faint of heart.
