The year 1997 seems to be a magical year for Clynelish. Wemyss has shared a beautiful sweet and spicy version of this year, that turns out to be a true headturner.
46% abv, €85, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour
Nose: light, fresh, fruity, ripe red apples, ripe pear, citrus peel, lime
Palate: spicy, hot red peppers, sweet, honey, cinnamon, dark chocolate, creamy mouth feel once the spice subsides a bit,
Finish: sweet, chocolate, medium long, citrus peel
Conclusion: Although it is not excessive in any way, I really like this. I am a big Clynelish fan, and this is another one that does not disappoint.
Distilled in 1997, matured in a Hogshead, bottled into 373 bottles in 2014
