Another edition of Clynelish for Diageo's yearly vintaged Distiller's Edition range. Clynelish's take on the series' 'Double Maturation' is to finish the whisky in oloroso sherry casks, to add an extra chunk of rich sweetness.

Tasting Notes

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Nose: Immediate raisins, in fact rum and raisin. Dried orange peel. In time, a clean walnut crispness appears. Water makes it softer, with aromas of dried cherry, sultana, apricot and some honey. There's still a slightly piercing quality – tangerine and chocolate.

    Palate: Very sweet with plumped-up dried fruit. Sultana cake with thick butter and underneath a bowl of nuts: hazelnut and macadamia. A slightly salty quality cuts through the unctuous texture.

    Finish: Short with a hint of nut-shell bitterness.
