    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 630 bottles from cask no. 8668
    It has been a while since we bottled Clynelish from a sherry cask, but it has been worth the wait. This has matured in a refill European oak ex sherry butt, giving it a lovely deep amber colour with moderate to good beading Keynote Clynelish waxiness comes through immediately - warm, scented wax – behind this, saddle soap, new leather and bog myrtle. Highland toffee takes over, quickly becoming Banoffee Pie; then Pineau des Charantes (from the ugni blanc grape: bitter/sweet) finishing with angelica root. The initial taste is very sweet and rich, with a waxy mouthfeel. A perfect example of the make. Water raises maritime notes (sea breeze, decaying seaweed and sand hoppers). The smooth waxy mouthfeel remains but now with sweet, dark chocolate creams in the aftertaste.

  4. MaltMartin scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    For me the taste of this Clynelish is better than the nose.
    • Nose
      Malty and leather. Carboardy and some soap as well. Nose becomes better later on, though. More complex.
    • Taste
      Delicious waxy mouthfeel (typical Clynelish). Toffee and sweet honey.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Some spice. Becomes salty at the end.
