About Clynelish Distillery
While many people are drawn to whiskies from the Speyside or Islay regions of Scotland, the Highlands tell an important part of Scottish whisky history. One of the most prominent of the Highland distilleries is Clynelish. When originally founded, the whisky from Clynelish was held in such high regard that it was only sold to customers privately. Over the years Clynelish has continued to prized among experts. Malt whisky gurus consistently praise the unique combination of North Highland and maritime qualities. You can almost taste the sea air with its crisp, medium-bodied, mustard-fresh style. The whisky doesn’t have the pungent smokey profile of an Islay whisky, but there are small traces of it. It’s not a heavy malt, perfect for enjoying anytime.
