Clynelish, The Cooper’s Choice 14 years, distilled 1982

February 14, 2008

Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Northern Highlands, 43% ABV

Very pale fino sherry color – no artificial coloring or evidence of sherry casking.  Classic Clynelish nose – absolutely distinctive watercress, wet stones, and white fruits. A smooth medium-bodied palate, with a little white-pepper spiciness and a fine interplay between the savory ‘green’ flavors and the resiny peach and plum hard-candy sweetness. Long woody finish – like mild sandlewood / dry sauna flavors. Excellent Clynelish from the early 80’s – when it’s twin distillery Brora was still around.
