  2. detachedblue scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Very old nutty and smoky whisky, live up to the hype.
    • Nose
      A very old style peated whisky with a lot of roasted almonds and tobacco, smoky rather than medicinal, a lot of chocolates, walnut liqueur, linseed oil, old books, mushrooms, roasted sunflower seeds. There are certainly some sherry components, dry sherry, old leather, jam, Chinese date pastes, dried apricots, evolving quite a bit over time, give some patience, warm it with your palm, it will be very rewarding.
    • Taste
      Very thick and jammy, quite sweet and immersive, syrupy walnut liqueur mixed with orange peels, al lot of leather, and tobacco, there is also a meaty side, beef stock, star anise, and liquorice, finished by fresh mints.
    • Finish
      Roasted walnuts, old leather, roasted sunflower seeds, roasted pumpkin seeds, the nuttiest finish I ever had! Super long.

  3. NRS did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Ernesto Mainardi (owner of Sestante at time of bottling) has said this bottle is not a Sestante bottling on a Facebook post in Malt Maniacs in June 2020. A number of industry experts have tasted it and say contents inside is real and one of best ever whiskies made. They also mentioned it has been around since approximately 2000, so labels would have to have been different before then.

    Some might say it’s a shame to drink sherry cask clynelish as it overpowers the distillate but here the balance is perfect, just brilliant wax tobacco dark fruits.
