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.

Relativ dünner Geruch mit leichten fruchtigen Noten, sehr holziger und trockener Geschmack und Gaumen. Jedenfalls außergewöhnliches Mundgefühl („Wachs“) wenn auch nicht mein Fall. 09/20 - Wien; Tastillery Box The Whisky Adventure

Isaac,
This bottle can be summed in one word, drama. If there's one highland you try let it be this. Truly delicious, complicated. The sort of dram one wants to share, but not with anyone who will talk over it. There's a distinct similarity to a higher proof Glenmorangie. The melon and brine, definite highland notes. But there's a depth here. I hesitate to claim the taste of oak, ever, but here u think I understand. Charry, blunt, punching above a salty, sweet base. Let it set, and it will linger, and become sweet. That melon will take over and you could swear you were drinking a high proof white wine, were it not for a hint of...not to be that snob, but I swear it's leather. Truly magnificent. It doesn't note anything about chill filtering or color, if it is colored or filtered, the cask pulled version must be worth unspeakable acts.

Very nice floral notes flanked by honey, light spice, and a touch of smoke. A quite unique and enjoyable dram.

Perfect example of a grand highland. A little bit of smoke, bitter herbs, and rich butter. One of my all time favorites.

Salty, spicy forward with a beautiful sweet rounded finish of honey and slight vanilla, some charred oak and some smoke. Creamy oily body. Very smooth and unique. Drinks a bit like a Highland Park 12. Very pleased with this purchase

Cleynelish is a masterful blend of flavors unique to our favorite region of the world. Nose-floral-orange-smoke (not the same but reminded me of laphroig) palate-more floral notes orange peat leather and oak were definitely drinking a Highland product Finish- long oily waxy fades to more to that orange and floral notes you pick up on in the day palate. Overall- I truly enjoy this scotch this truly is a great blend of different flavors which pays homage to a great region of the world
