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.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Sugared almonds, honeysuckle and nectarines. The fruit continues, with zesty lemon and sweet apple fading to leave royal-icing sweetness.

    • Palate

      Thick and rich, with more nuts and fruit: almonds and apple jam. There's some light fruit cake, oat cask and sweet spice to start, with a sea of raisins and sultanas following behind. Floral notes float around above the whisky, unobscured by a rich base of spice and fruit. Citrus zest notes build through the middle.

    • Finish

      A burst of candied lemon, then liquorice, spiced fruit loaf and gentle barrel char.

    • Comment

      Well balanced and mouth watering – loads of fresh and dried fruit with a distinctive Clynelishiness running throughout.
