Distillery

Cult status seems to have been conferred in recent years on the Clynelish distillery, which command the middle stretch of the Northern Highlands. The appeal of their malts lies partly in their coastal aromas and flavors.

 

House Style: Seaweedy, spicy. Mustard-and-oil.

Tasting Notes

Taster: Jim Murray

Nose: Excellent complexity with diced carrots adding to the earthy, salady aroma. Some sweetness but drier than usual.

 

Palate: Fruity, grapey and beautifully mouth watering: quite different from the nose. Brilliant sub-strata of peat runs throughout and adds a luscious sweetness to compliment the sultanas and spice.

 

Finish: Smoky and dries rapidly to allow in a cocoa effect.

 

Comment: A disarming malt that exudes sheer class.
