    Ainslie & Heilbronn have bottled better stuff than that such as the famous Clynelish series

    This a further note to my 2016 entry as it is from a different bottle.
    will it be any better?

    Er no not really because it smells a little like scented furniture polish and there is a cheap caramel angle on the palate mixed with some plastic off note.

    These can go for up to £200 at auction, if you need it for your collection fair enough, if you want to drink it, do not bother.

    In fairness it does improve a little with time but not enough to get even my MOTR score which is 75.

    • Finish
