Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : orangey copper with glints of burnished gold.
  • Nose : both large and deep. Citrus fruit zest, heady florals (lilac, violet) and dried fruit (apricot, date) give the aromatic palette huge volume. Fine spices (cardamom, clove), dark chocolate and peppermint make it last forever. Malted barley acts as the pivotal point for the nose as a whole.
  • Palate : clear, lively. The attack on the palate is straight-forward and gets straight to the point. It creates a deep furrow in liquoricey, damp soil and chocolatey peat. The salted, malty mid-palate creates a clear transition. It lingers with notes of salted butter caramel and orange zest. The end of the palate is mineral (tawny sands) and roasted (coffee, tobacco).
  • Overall : long, indulgent. Beeswax and strong spices (black pepper, clove) create a combination of flavours full of energy and sweetness. Once aerated, the finish transforms into quince jelly and heather honey. The retro-nasal olfaction is saffron-scented, delicately woody and toasted (walnut, almond). The voluptuous empty glass evokes a traditional green chartreuse liqueur.
The brand

The brand

Located in the north of the Highlands and rebuilt next to its original site in 1967, Clynelish produces a fresh and fruity malt, the majority of which is used for the Johnnie Walker blends. The former Clynelish distillery wasn’t demolished, but instead renamed Brora in 1969. It produces a powerful and heavily-peated Highland malt. It closed its doors in 1983 and its bottlings are now particularly sought-after by collectors.


Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.

The line

Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
