CLYNELISH Select Reserve


A very complex single malt, evolving smoothly, with rich and suave top notes of wax, fruit, and butterscotch, moving through intense warmth to a dark and silky dryness of an aromatic finish.

Evocative, resolute, and joyful, surprisingly fresh yet speaking of the past, it layers the classic notes of coastal ozone, brine, and peat with a fruity and perfumed complexity, gentle warmth, and becomes even more approachable with dilution.

This enhances a certain lightness while suggesting more elegant layers of creamy flavors.

Tasting Notes

: Immediate and complex, with delightful freshness. A smooth and waxy attack of honey cake cut by sharp and fruity notes of resin. Becoming syrupy, the sweetness evolves into a creamy note of butterscotch, balanced by raisins and a caramelized fruitiness (burnt orange) or red apple and autumn berries. Later, a tangy hint of vinaigrette and pine resin appears. Dilution releases creamy and heady fragrances of rosewater Turkish delight or scented candle, before fresh mint and suave butterscotch notes appear, followed by herbaceous aromas of ripe apple, pear, and pineapple, and finally woody notes of tobacco or pencil shavings.

Palate : Lustrous. Clean, suave, fruity, and with great aromatic fullness. The warmth of pepper and a creamy butterscotch sweetness, balanced by a sharp fruitiness and a note of licorice. Dilution softens and refreshes it, resulting in a smoother mouthfeel. The suaveness of the fruit is well balanced by a clear floral or mineral note, pepper, and a nutty and biscuity dryness.

Finish : Short to medium. Very smooth and elegant, marked by intense spicy warmth. It gently dries on a nutty note, the silky tannins of dry cocoa, a hint of cigar box, and a purifying aspect. Adding water refreshes it: now more precise notes of fresh cedar and, very late, dark chocolate truffles.
