CLYNELISH 1996 COLLECTIVE 48%
Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Highlands, 70cl, Ref: 53834
Created in 1968, the new Clynelish distillery produces a single malt highly sought-after not only by master blenders but also by independent bottlers. Produced from deux casks, this bottling has all the notes of wax, sweet spice, salt, florals and fruit that represent the DNA of this North Highland malt. To top it all, a gentle hint of peat has also been added to the fold. More subjectively, it is also a great excuse to take an invigorating hike to the summit of steep cliffs.
Profile: the opulent initial nose is lightly peated, before moving into beeswax and malted barley. Allowed to breathe, it becomes herbaceous, salty, floral (peony) and fruity (melon). The lively attack draws on a malty, spicy backbone to assert its honeyed, juicy character. The end of the palate brings iodine. The rich finish then offers us still-hot brioche.
