CLYNELISH 24 ANS 1995 58%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 56767

After a year of renovation and modernisation work, Clynelish re-began production in June 2017. And, much to the delight of enthusiasts throughout the world, 2020 will also see the reopening of the ancient, mythical distillery of Brora, which closed in 1983. For now, this new Clynelish stamped 20 Rue d’Anjou unmistakably echoes the magnificent 1995 single cask from our 2019 Creation Catalogue. Far less influenced by the sherry cask ageing and instead very smoky, peaty, waxy and marine, it indelibly writes a new chapter in a history already rich in remarkable bottlings. As the saying goes, “You can never have too much of a good thing...”

the distinguished first nose is characterized by notes of candied lemon, puffed rice and camphor. Allowed to breathe, it becomes medicinal and spicy (star anise, incense). A delicately smoky and honeyed malted barley then appears. The unctuous attack is fruity (pear, pineapple), rustic (pasture) and roasted (coffee). The mid-palate reveals citrus fruit (orange, clementine). The stripped back start of the finish centres on the earthy and peaty nature of the flavour palette. Gradually, wisps of smoke bring to mind a herbaceous and spicy (star anise) Havana cigar.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : intense golden yellow.
  • Nose : elegant, distinguished. The very dense first nose is characterized by notes of candied lemon, puffed rice, coconut and camphor. After this particularly original introduction, the spicy and medicinal register gradually sets in. Black pepper, clove, star anise and incense bring lots of nobility to the aromatic palette. A radiant malted barley then comes to the forefront. It is very delicately smoky and above all honeyed (acacia, beeswax).
  • Palate : lively yet creamy. Perfectly embodying a single malt from the northern Highlands of Scotland, the attack is fruity (pear, pineapple), rustic (pasture, dandelion), salty, mineral (chalk), medicinal (ointment) and delicately roasted (coffee, mocha). With lots of freshness, the mid-palate is characterized by citrus (orange, clementine) and exotic fruit (passion fruit, kiwi, lichee). Increasingly saline, the end of the palate clearly evokes the seaside (shellfish, sea spray). With lots of spirit, it takes us to the top of a cliff to admire a foamy sea.
  • Overall : long, minimalist. A dry peat highlights the earthy and rooty (gentian) character of the start of the finish. Smoke rings then float across a sea-blue sky. Their refined bitterness evokes a herbaceous and spicy (grey pepper, star anise) Havana cigar. On the retro-nasal olfaction, white fruits (grape, Mirabelle plum, quince) flood the palate with their deliciously tangy juices. In unison with the nose and palate, the dried extracts found in the empty glass are malty, herbaceous (twig), mentholated and ashy.

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.

Merchant

Artist, Lands of Scotland, Malt Pedigree, Tartan, The Ten, Very Cloudy... all of these whisky ranges – composed of single malts and single grains – have one thing in common: they were all created by the team at La Maison du Whisky. They are the fruits of many decades of close collaboration with some of the most prestigious bottlers in Scotland. For some years the French importer and exclusive distributor of the classic ranges of well-known spirits producers, La Maison du Whisky was soon granted the very rare privilege of being able to complement these ranges with their own, bringing together two sets of expertise, two reputations and two complementary histories under one, single label.
