“A coastal and peaty single malt, the flagship expression from Clynelish boasts a fabulous flavor profile filled with its distinctive waxy notes. Clynelish is the successor of Brora which closed in 1983, which is built opposite. A well rounded Highlander, though this expression is a bit less peaty than the Brora bottlings of yore. Nose: Zesty, mandarin, tangerine. Smoky.
Palate: Quite light, great clarity. Orange, soft acidity. Dry oak. Mixed fruits, vanilla, leather.
Finish: Quite long, bittersweetness developing, spicy oak.”
