Another edition of Clynelish for Diageo's yearly vintaged Distiller's Edition range. Clynelish's take on the series's 'Double Maturation' is to finish the whisky in oloroso sherry casks, to add an extra chunk of rich sweetness.
A vintage edition of the hugely popular Glenlivet Nadurra. This special version has been made with a single barley variety, Triumph (hence the name), and has been composed exclusively using malt from the 1991 vintage, bottled at 48%. As with other Nadurras, this Glenlivet has been neither coloured nor chill-filtered.
