Clynelish 15 yo 1995/2011 L’Esprit

by Oliver Klimek on May 15, 2013

First fill sherry butt 8657 – 46%


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Raisins, figs, toffee, struck matches, cinnamon and cardamom.
Palate: Sweet raisins, baba au rhum, milk chocolate, mixed exotic spiced and a touch of sulphur.
Finish: Long, fruity and slightly spicy.
Overall: Without a doubt this is a divisive dram. For me the sulphur is just the right amount to add depth, but your mileage may vary.

Rating: 88/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

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