Clynelish Whisky

Originally an expansion of the first Clynelish distillery (which is now called Brora), the spirit shares a big, oily body with an waxy mouthfeel and a perfumed beeswax candle note. There is often pineapple as well as bright citrus flavours, and a mix of more green, grassy notes along with a certain minerality. Unlike the final years of Brora, Clynelish goes unpeated, leaving a smokeless whisky.

As demands for blended whisky rose during the whisky boom of the 1960s, DCL decided that it would be better to meet production demands by building a whole new distillery next door to what was then known as Clynelish, rather than trying to expand the original site. This second distillery is the Clynelish that exists today, producing whisky of the same name. Until 1975 the original distillery, that was founded in 1819, and the recently built extension distillery operated as Clynelish-A and Clynelish-B. Finally someone saw sense and created a law that two distilleries could not have the same (or very similar) names, and the original Clynelish was renamed 'Brora' after its hometown.
