    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 580 bottles from cask 8250
    Clynelish Distillery sits high up on the North-East coast of Scotland in the famous town of Brora. Famous for producing top-quality malt, this single cask from 1996 is no exception. From a refill sherry butt, this has a lovely burnished copper colour, with a moderate beading (pointing to good mouthfeel and texture), and a fairly lively nose. Soft leather in the front, giving way to apple pie with spices (cloves?), then slightly caramelized with a trace of honey comb. There is also a strong sense of waxy apple skins, even a hint of toffee apples. The flavour starts with a light sweetness (heather honey), and then a distinct waxiness after a while – both strong characters of the make. Then, some hot spice at 50% reduction, but remaining sweet. All in all, an extremely well-balanced and shaped whisky for its age.
