Review #1072 – Clynelish, House of Tyrell, Game of Thrones Special Release

Review #1072 | Scotch Review #367 – Diageo Game of Thrones Series: Clynelish, House of Tyrell

The Schtick: Admittedly, I don’t, or at least haven’t sat down to yet, watch Game of Thrones. But I do like Clynelish, so I took a dive on this one. This bottling represents the house Tyrell in the story’s fictional plotline. It is bottled at a higher proof than Clynelish 14, but does not carry an age statement.

Distiller: Clynelish

Bottler: Diageo

ABV: 51.2% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Rich honey, toffee, waxy fruits. Fresh baked bread. Sweet graham cracker, light brine. Faint pepper and smoke. Vanilla bean.

Taste: Thick, rich mouth feel. Muted heat despite the proof. Honey, sweet apples and pears. Faint fig, and currant. Dole fruit syrup. Infusion of smoke rolls in, present but reserved. Light brine and some clove. Nice pepper note, good oak body despite the relative youth. Syrupy plums.

Finish: Long, rich and filled with smoke, vanilla, pears and fig. Lots of tobacco, earthy richness and some sweetness.

Overall: Incredibly solid. I plan to not make this my last bottle.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
