In the master class with Charles Maclean at the WFNN festival recently I got to try the Clynelish distilled in 1997 and bottled in 2014 at 17 years old.
Bottled at 46%, from an ex bourbon cask #4043. Unchillfiltered and no colouring added.
Fresh, fruit, light waxy, light floral, fresh cereal, white pepper, vanilla
Fresh, citrus, waxy, floral, grassy, white pepper, vanilla, raisins, red apple, banana, fruit sweetness, citrus freshness with some grassy notes and malty notes behind it.
Medium length finish, some dry notes remain with milk chocolate creaminess and rich vanilla and banana dryness (of the inside of the peel). Bit waxy, banana, custard pudding with cookie crumble on to and some chocolate sprinkles.
Lovely dram and scoring an 7,5 out of 10.
