Clynelish Select Reserve Special Release

Clynelish Select Reserve Special Release

The second Select Reserve. Liquid was chosen from ex-bourbon first-fill American oak barrels, rejuvenated and refill American oak hogsheads, and ex-Sherry and refill European oak butts - no stone was left unturned it seems. A release of 2,946 individually numbered bottles.

Nose: Super buttery at first, rather than waxy per se, it's like custard. There's some jaffa cake in there, but it's more cake than jaffa, pepper too.

Palate: Custard and cocoa, thick, delicious and comforting.

Finish: Spicy and sweet with a hint of salinity.

Overall: Different to last year, but another expertly put together whisky."
