Region, Subregion, Country:
Light candle wax, with some sugar. A faint floral fragrance. Pleasant creamy mouthfeel; maritime generally. Some salt, dryish yet an attractive, even slightly bitter finish.
Clynelish is an anglicised version of the Gaelic for green pasture. And, though it’s a coastal whisky, this is fitting for a Scotch with sweet floral fragrances and verdant flavour notes. It’s a name with a long history, one that predates the distillery we know today, but which has adorned the labels of whisky bottles for two hundred years.
