Chosen by Whisky Exchange co-founder Sukhinder Singh and head buyer Dawn Davies MW

  • Clynelish 1996 / 21 Year Old / Sherry Cask / TWE Exclusive

    Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    70cl / 52%

    Clynelish 1996 / 21 Year Old / Sherry Cask / TWE Exclusive

    A very special Clynelish, bottled for The Whisky Exchange by Signatory in celebration of the 10th edition of The Whisky Show in London. We've been fortunate to bottle a few of these sherried Clynelishes, and this might be the best yet. It was distilled on 11 December 1996 and bottled on 20 August 2018 at 21 years old. The sherry butt has added layers of dried fruit and spice, but without hiding Clynelishes fresh and fruit character. An excellent balancing act.

    Highland Park 18 Year Old / Viking Pride

    The 2017 relaunch of one of our all-time favourites, this has to be one of the most consistently excellent malt whiskies of the past 10 years. Showered with awards and praise from all quarters, it was named as 'Best Spirit in the World' by F Paul Pacult of the Spirit Journal. Unfailingly excellent, especially after a good meal. Pacult wrote: 'After 25 years' experience, it fits my profile of what makes a perfect whisky, which is to say it's totally in harmony, there are no rough edges and everything is melded together brilliantly.'
