Clynelish 14 yo 1997/2012 Single Cask Collection

by Oliver Klimek on December 21, 2012

Refill sherry hogshead 6891 – 56.8%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Bright amber
Nose: Quite fresh overall, pineapple and banana, honey, almonds, candied ginger and a whiff of wood polish.
Palate: Essentially like a breakfast muesli with dried topical fruit and a splash of honey added, but with a slightly briny undertone.
Finish: Long, fruity and slighty spicy.
Overall: This is a typical example of a straightforward young Clynelish, everything is in its place, nicely sippable and no suprises in eiter direction.

Rating: 82/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a bronze medal, re-tasted for notes.
