Oh my, you think you have this one in the bag, but another lift to the nose and there's more.
Clynelish Distillers Edition was distilled in 1992 and bottled 2007. Double matured in Olorosso Seco casks.
The distillery in Brora is second only to Pulteney in being the most northerly of the mainland distilleries. The closeness of them both to the North Sea adds that maritime edge to their characters.
On the nose now: sherry, sweet raisins or is it sultanas?, coffee creams and away in the distance black cherries.
Palate: Spice, oak tannins, sherry, wild red berries, sea spray mixing wonderfully with pear drops.
I like this whisky and suggest you would like it too.
