10 Year Old Signatory for TWE
- Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky
Made in 2008 at Clynelish distillery, this Highland single malt has spent a decade in a single first-fill ex-bourbon hogshead before being bottled in April 2019 by Signatory Vintage for The Whisky Exchange's 20th anniversary celebrations. A fruity, waxy whisky it is a classic Clynelish with notes of creamy vanilla throughout the palate.
Clynelish 2008 Reviews
Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Rich and dark vanilla pods, freshly scraped, with an almost smokiness lifted by a touch of meadow flower and grass. Creamy sweetness builds, with crème brûlée joined by orange jelly and a grate of lemon zest. Fruity notes develop: apples, pears and gummi chews.
Soft, sweet and rounded – much lighter than the nose suggests. Cream and orchard fruit leads – apple flan with single cream. Spice builds along with darker notes of milk chocolate, cinnamon and liquorice.
Baked apples and pears with brown sugar and cinnamon fade slowly to leave liquorice and lemon zest.
A rich and rounded dram with creamy vanilla balanced by fruit and spice.
