  • Intro:

    This is a 21yr bottling of Clynelish distillate that was aged for 20 years in Oloroso sherry casks and transitioned to a first fill PX cask for the final year of maturation. It is bottled at cask strength, NCF, with no color added, by the SMWS

  • Nose:

    Sugar, honey, toffee, waxed fruits, sour milk, nutty sherry, fruity. Tobacco, rich cocoa.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, pepper, stewed fruits, milk ash smoke, caramel, Dole fruit syrup. Super rich. Astounding complexity.

  • Finish:

    Long, rich no heat, sweet caramel, bread-y yeasty sweet caramel. Mild smoke, pepper, oak, stewed fruits. Rich sherry balances well with oak and rich spirit

  • Overall:

    Really quite great but cant live up to some other SMWS Clynelish Ive had. That in no way is a knock, though, because this was fantastic.

  • Score:

    9
