Tasting Notes by Rocky
Nose: Vanilla and apple notes (almost the sweeter, rarer yellow variety) with a briny, salty style of peat.
Palate: Vanilla notes come through, along with the waxiness that Clynelish is known for, apple notes that were present on the nose and a definite maritime character.
Finish: A rather long sweet finish with peat that’s really well balanced by the fruitiness all the way through.
Comment: Doesn’t seem as peated as one may expect from the name, but this is more than likely just down to the balance of the other flavours meaning it’s not overpowering. A delicious whisky that’s deserving of its anniversary commemoration status.
Intense aromas of peet-reek, smoke, seaside character and burnt ropes, with a subtle apple-fruitiness in the background. The palate is full, round and tremendously complex. Water brings out a spice- laden, sweet vanilla character, as well.
