Tasting notes of SlàinteMhath:

10. Oct 2016
Known for its waxiness, Clynelish 14 is a Highland Single Malt primarily matured in ex-bourbon casks. Scotch mist gives an indication that it is non-chill filtered. Creamy honey, candle wax and lemon juice are prominent on the nose, while rich floral notes with a hint of peppermint lurk in the background. The arrival is warming and aromatic, unfolding a distinctly dry and oily character. Oak bitterness with a touch of salt dominates the medium length finish. Altogether, it is an engaging and intense malt that requires time and is not suitable as everyday dram.
RATING: 3.9/5.0 ≙ 87 pts
