Clynelish Selected Reserve 2015
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Coastal Highlands.

Appearance

Deep, crisp yellow-gold with fine viscosity.

Nose

Unexpected high notes of soft vanilla soon reveals that familiar Clynelish waxiness, floating over crisp green apples and fresh moorland scents – then prickly with a fruity note, suggesting ripe red apples.

Body

Medium. Rich.

Palate

Massively welcoming, friendly and comforting. Big, full, creamy and intensely sweet overall, with fruit, malt and toffee; just like a liquid chocolate orange, with a balancing trace of smoke and a little salt.

Finish

Warming and smooth: rich, chocolaty and drying, with a peppery aftertaste. A shortbread note, smooth tannins and ripe fruits, then a clean, bittersweet finish with more chocolate orange. Softer with water, spicy-sweet and warming, still with a dry, peppery close.

Information:

Make: ClynelishTM

Strength: 56.1% ABV

Place of Origin: Brora

Region: Coastal East Highland

Nose:

Reserved, with a first unexpected high note of soft creamy vanilla or buttery sponge that soon reveals that familiar Clynelish waxiness, floating over crisp green apples amid fresh moorland scents, dry smoke and moss. After this the nose feel is prickly with a fruity note, suggesting ripe red apples. Water sweetens things, bringing up cereal and malt notes with underlying caramel or vanilla fudge balanced by sharp red berries, but the real joy here is on the palate.

Palate:

Massively welcoming, friendly and comforting. Big, full, creamy and intensely sweet overall, with fruit, malt and toffee; just like a liquid chocolate orange, with a balancing trace of smoke and a little salt on the tip of the tongue. Just as soft, satisfying and harmonious with water, when it’s not quite so mouth-filling. The sweetness is more delicate now, with a helpful fruit acidity; buttery homemade cookies and salted caramels, with a little smoky pungency.
