Bourbon wood – 49.7%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Bright gold
Nose: Overripe apples, light honey, vanilla, waxed oak, candied ginger and a seaside breeze.
Palate: Honey-glazed apples, hints of banana, lemon zest, vanilla, cane syrup, ginger, hints of nutmeg.
Finish: Long, frunty and slightly spicy.
Overall: The famous Clynelish waxiness is prominently featured in this wonderful malt, a perfect dram from the Brora successor.
Rating: 91/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
Scored blind for the Malt Maniacs Awards 2012 where it won a bronze medal, re-tasted for notes
