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
Sugar, honey, toffee, waxed fruits, sour milk, nutty sherry, fruity. Tobacco, rich cocoa.
Thick, rich, pepper, stewed fruits, milk ash smoke, caramel, Dole fruit syrup. Super rich. Astounding complexity.
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
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.
