The original Clynelish distillery was established in 1819 and operated until 1968 when it was replaced by the new modern Clynelish Distillery. The old distillery was then renamed Brora and continued operating alongside the new distillery until 1983. The new distillery continued with the more traditional production of an excellent and characterful malt which is highly regarded by blenders. The old distillery began the production of a rather peaty malt, this peaty malt was necessary for the owner of the distillery at the time because Caol Ila, another important distillery belonging to the Clynelish owner was temporarily closed for refurbishment, and the malt was needed for the blends of the group. The old distillery buildings still exists, and today are used as warehouses for the new one. Today only 1% of the production is sold as single malt, the remaining 99% is used in Johnnie Walker Gold Label blend.
 

Clynelish Tasting Notes


Clynelish 14 Year Old Single Malt.
Colour: Gold.
Nose: Rather peaty, a pleasant sea freshness. Fruity, spicy. Malted barley on a background of floral hints.
Taste: The taste confirms the nose, peaty and spicy. A perfect balance between peat and rare malt spices.
