Clynelish was built in 1968 and uses (more numerous) exact replicas of the stills at Brora (now closed). It is made with some peated barley but is produced in a much lighter style that the whiskies made at Brora. They show and attractive waxy characteristic and are a perfect introduction to peated whiskies for the enthusiast.
A classic case of a coastal Highland malt with a subtle Island character.
