Bottled specially for Whisky Show: Old & Rare 2020, this 36-year-old Clynelish from the Single Malts of Scotland's Director's Special range demonstrates what long ageing in a great cask can do to the distillery's waxy and fruity spirit. It's a complex dram, layering tropical fruit, spring flowers, citrus, spice and waxed oak flavours. A fitting tribute to the old & rare whiskies available at the show.Tasting Notes (1)

No of Bottles
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
An oversized fresh-cut bouquet rolls out of the glass, with meadow flowers, freshly mown grass and candy sticks not far behind. Creamy and waxy notes poke out between the blooms, with vanilla custard and rose-water-infused cream. With time in the glass, biscuity notes develop – digestives and coconutty Nice.
Soft and rounded, with stewed lemons and milk chocolate leading. The biscuits from the nose return, with the coconut slightly shy, along with a touch of polished oak and rich damp oak. Tinned pineapple comes out from behind the oak, with pineapple cubes and dried apple rings following. Spice develops, with a hint of peppery heat balanced by menthol and aniseed balls.
The aniseed tingle remains, with polished oak and pineapple slowly fading.
The summer-meadow nose leads into a complex and exploration of Clynelish’s unique spirit and its interaction with oak. Spice, fruit and cream, all carefully balanced and well-integrated. A couple of drops of water – no more – takes the edge off the tingle, revealing even more meadow sweetness.
