This limited-edition distillery-only bottling of Clynelish sublimely eternalises whisky history. Carefully picked by the distillery team, it is a treasure for all Whisky fans and visitors that make the pilgrimage to the distillery to venture through its evolution and popular flavours.
An exclusive release with authentic Clynelish character that opens with a burst of sweetness from combined toffee, butterscotch and vanilla aromas, swiftly followed by fresh fruits and a gentle salinity. The vibrant red apple remains evident on the palate allied by warming wood spices and the signature Clynelish waxiness. Matured in a mixture of American ex-bourbon and rejuvenated casks, this single malt commemorates the distillery’s nature, with a short but sweet warming cinnamon finish. With a splash of water, the fruity notes become more prominent, vibrant and light, alongside the dry woodiness and the distinct waxiness.
