Clynelish, 36 Year Old

RRP £995 on release

Old Clynelish is hard to come by, and this was an absolute cracker. Perhaps the whisky of the tasting, it had classic waxy flavours and linseed oil with red fruits in abundance, especially redcurrants. The sherry flavours held all these competing characters together. With a little air, even more complexity follows, along with white pepper, heather, bog myrtle and gorse flowers, and on the finish a very slight smokiness and nutty flavours.
