Clynelish 17 Years Old

The current Clynelish distillery was built in 1967 in the town of Brora, on the North-East coast of Scotland, part of the Highland region. The original distillery, renamed Brora, was closed down in the 1980s. Clynelish is very highly regarded by it’s owner Diageo and is used as the base for many of  their world-famous blends. The make is  described as honey-waxy. Many writers also comment that it has the character of an island malt, perhaps because of the distillery's proximity to the sea.

Only 243 bottles from cask no. 6413 American oak hogshead, previously filled with Bourbon.

Wine Notes
Color
Dark straw with copper lights, very bright. Excellent bold beads indicating good mouth texture.
Aroma
Melted honey, paraffin wax, cantaloupe melon, cotton candy, bath salts, coconut with traces of walnut oil and soft marshmallows.
Taste
Sweet to start then drying slightly. Spicy chili pepper on the tongue with the anticipated mouth filling texture. Wax from the honey comb increases with the addition of a little water. Dusty cocoa and liquorice lingering in a medium-length finish.
