An active American oak hogshead has produced the sharp, clear orange lights and golden syrup colour of this intriguing north Highland whisky which takes a little time to reveal itself. Excellent beading indicates the usual thick mouthfeel that we expect from Clynelish. The opening notes of dusty drawers in a wax polished desk give way to dried Madeira cake with manuka honey in the background. Reducing the strength produces fragrant beeswax and a delicious bowl of mushy berries. The searching mouth texture finds every nook and cranny and finishes off with a sprinkling of white pepper. Another great cask from this excellent vintage of Clynelish!
