Clynelish Canada

Postby Elagabalus » Thu Nov 15, 2007 12:21 am

Clynelish isn't available at the LCBO :(

How could I acquire a bottle? Any ideas other than venturing out of the country or to another province?

I don't think Oban and Clynelish are at all alike. I'm happy to take your word for it that you find it so, but I don't think many would find it such a good match.

For me, Oban has a very pronounced ripe fruit quality that separates it from Clynelish.

I can order some Clynelish for you if you're able to order by the case (6 bottles). Failing that I'll try to get some into the LCBO for early next year. You can see other products on our website.

If you're very desperate - I'm Toronto-bound next week and could add a Clynelish to my "Muling Mission"...

just had a tasting at work and it's a very good malt.... Talisker-ish but without the distinctive peat/smoke that Talisker provides.... this is a good whisky and I would say if you like Talisker, get a bottle and enjoy.... it's not as big but it is very nice.

The Clynelish 14yo was one of my first Single Malts since it is easily available here. While I can see some similarities to Oban and Talisker, only in the fact that those two are unique to themselves. Clynelish is hard to fit in a pocket, so to speak. It has elements of all of Scotland, IMHO. Some fruity Speyside notes, some Coastal Highland salt and minerals, some subtle Islay peat with a hint of smoke and some grassy Lowland tartness. It can also be moody in that sometimes I love it and some days it's not what I want. Definitely worth a try, which reminds me I haven't had that one open for awhile. Working on a Signatory 1993 Clynelish now that is different but still recognizable.
