Clynelish 14, in Scotland's Highland The standard expression of the Clynelish distillery (Pronounced: Kilayn-lish).
of Clynelish, Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Let's also mention that it is one of the main malts of the blend.
Clynelish 14 (Scottish Single Malt, 46% abv)
Nose: Fresh and floral scents are immediately evident. These scents are followed by ginger and candle scents with sweet notes such as apple, pear, vanilla, lemon and honey. Although sweet and fresh, it has a strong and slightly burning character.
Palate: Only after such a nose can there be such a different and surprising palate… The first thing I can say is hot and scorching! Ginger, spice and black pepper. It leaves an ash-like bitterness in the mouth after smoking. When I let it sit for a while in my glass, slightly salty and sweet aromas in the nose emerged. Orange, citrus, honey and toffee. Complex and full.
Finish: Spicy, dry and quite long.
Comment: The first thing that sticks in my mind for Clynelish 14 is that after the fresh and floral scents in the nose, it almost roasts my palate when I drink it… An interesting and strong whiskey that gives the feeling of "I'm drinking whiskey"! I would like to mention that Clynelish 14 is also one of the first Single malts I tried.
