WhatsApp Image 2018-02-16 at 19.14.59Thanks to Yosi for the sample (and the image)

I sometimes regret how little love I give to Clynelish, for years my favourite distillery, still is I’ve just added several others to the list as well. This is one of many many bottles of mid to late 90’s distillate put out by Signatory as part of their Cask Strength Collection. It’s one of the independent bottling labels I really feel confident when trying as they’re almost always fantastic and when they’re not they’re still pretty damn good.

Clynelish is a distillery that hold a very special place in my heart and it’s been a long time since I’ve had anything other than the 14 year old distillery bottling. So I was very excited to get hold of this independent bottling from Signatory’s Cask Strength Collection (the ones with the really cool decanter).

Clynelish 14yo

9tfdLHhTo get the blog going I’ll be reposting some tasting notes that I’ve taken in the past. I decided to start with this whisky because it’s a long time favourite of mine.

This malt is still just as good as when I first discovered it way back in 2003.
