Often described as a whisky drinker’s whisky, the latest bottling for come from the coastal distillery Clynelish, will be only available at the end of a pilgrimage to the place itself.

However it will be worth the road trip. The distillery is set in the green pastures and rolling hills in Brora, with picturesque views of the North Sea. The combined source of its water from Clynemilton Burn and its Northern Highland barley perpetuates its historic flavours in each bottle.

Jenni Watson, master distiller at Clynelish, said: “This unique bottling is a perfect representation of the character of the Clynelish Distillery with fruity flavours intensified by the careful selection of cask types. Our goal was to create the ultimate whisky that combined the classic coastal Highland and the subtle Island character. With this vision in mind, this distinguished bottling honours our history by preserving the gentle spice and waxiness.”

Tasting notes: (From the producer)

It opens with a burst of sweetness from combined toffee, butterscotch and vanilla aromas, swiftly followed by fresh fruits and a gentle salinity. The vibrant red apple remains evident on the palate allied by warming wood spices and the signature Clynelish waxiness. A short but sweet warming cinnamon finish. With a splash of water, the fruity notes become more prominent, vibrant and light, alongside the dry woodiness and the distinct waxiness.
