Clynelish distillery can trace its origins back to 1819, however the current distillery which was built in 1967-68 and was constructed adjacent and to the south of the old distillery.
Nose: Waxy, Jaffa Cakes, milk choc. It's Clynelish alright, and a good'un. Disco sweets, jazzes too (the white ones), but don't think this is all sugary or sickly because it isn't. A sprinkling of cinnamon, fresh orange and orchard fruit round off a beautiful nose.
Palate: Great mouthfeel, more orange, more sweeties too but again they're kept in check by the balanced citrus and wood spices. Honeysuckle and ginger, complex and delicious.
Finish: Long,warming and spicy with some satisfying grip.
