70cl / 56.2%
Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
A single cask release of 1995 vintage Clynelish, chosen by us here at TWE and bottled by our friends at Signatory. The distillery has long been a favourite of our team and this cask jumped out as a perfect example of why - fruity and rich with a touch of spice, a great marriage of sherry cask and Clynelish's spirit.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by Billy A

Nose: Cooked apple with cinnamon, warm leather, and stewed plums and raisins. Floating above are lighter fruity flavours, with fresh cut Braeburns, gummi chews and tinned pineapple.

Palate: Classic Clynelish wax, quickly pushed aside by spice and fruit - more apples and chews from the nose, along with plump raisins and grape skin tartness. Water brings out more sweetness, with dark black liquorice and sherbert.

Finish: Fragrant wood resins, tingling cinnamon and lingering medium-sweet apples.

Comment: A well-balanced Clynelish, with the classic waxy spirit character bolstered but not hidden by sherry cask spiciness.
