Clynelish Select Reserve 2014 Special Release Description

Part of the Diageo Special Releases Collection 2014.

A limited edition natural cask strength single malt from the Clynelish distillery at Brora on the Sutherland coast, this is the first ever Clynelish release in this series.

Matured in a combination of ex-bourbon, rejuvenated and refill American Oak, and ex-bodega & refill European Oak. The casks are hand-selected and aged for at least fifteen years, and often far more.

This was created by master craftsman, Dr. Jim Beveridge, and there are only 2.964 individually numbered bottles available worldwide.

A fresh but fully mature nose. The keynote waxy scents are balanced by oily butterscotch, fragrant mixed herbs and unripe brambles. Water increases both the waxiness and the fruitiness, which both come through in the taste, which starts sweet and finishes tart and lightly spicy. Dries in the finish, with hints of cedar-wood.

Knowledge Bar

One of Scotland's earliest purpose-built malt whisky distilleries. When the original Clynelish distillery was built in 1819 by the future Duke of Sutherland, the quality of Clynelish Single Malt Scotch Whisky was so prized that only private customers were supplied.

Closed in 1931-38, 1941 - 1945. Stills were direct coal - fired until 1961, after which steam heated. In the 1960's electricity was installed and a new distillery was built in 1967-68.

Clynelish became part of the Classic Malts range in 2007.
