Clynelish 2022 Special Release 12 Year Old is a single malt Scotch that was matured in refill American oak casks, then Pedro Ximenez and Oloroso sherry-seasoned casks.

A few drops of water bring out the herbal notes in this beautiful sipper.

About Clynelish

Founded in 1819, Clynelish Distillery is situated along the stormy coast of Sutherland County in the Highlands region of Scotland. The distillery was first established by the Marquis of Stafford who, after marrying into the Sutherland family, became the first Duke of Sutherland. For a number of years after the original distillery was constructed, the quality of Clynelish whisky was so prized that only friends of the Duke were able to purchase the whisky.

Today — nearly two centuries after its initial founding — Clynelish Distillery continues to use many of the same ingredients, including Highlands-malted barley and water sourced from Clynemilton Burn, in crafting its single malt whisky as it did under the stewardship of the Duke of Sutherland. Once the malted barley and water arrive at the distillery, the grains are milled and mashed before being fermented in Clynelish's wooden washbacks. While wooden washbacks are more expensive and difficult to maintain as compared to stainless steel washbacks, they absorb a portion of the heat generated during the fermentation process and thus, create a lighter and more rich whisky. After fermentation, the wash is distilled twice: first through Clynelish's copper-pot wash still and then again through its spirit still.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
