Clynelish Distillers Edition Oloroso Finish 1997 Single Malt Whisky.
Clynelish “the Distillers Edition” Double Matured in Oloroso casks.
Distilled in 1997 and bottled in 2011.
Clynelish Distillers Edition Oloroso Finish.
Tasting notes kindly supplied by Diageo.
Each Distillers Edition expression undergoes a second (or ‘double’) maturation in casks that have previously held a fortified wine.
Brilliant, clean and refined with great balance. Double-matured in carefully selected Oloroso Seco casks, making it easy to drink, especially as an aperitif.
On the nose; Immediate raisins, in fact rum and raisin. Dried orange peel. In time a clean walnut crispness appears. Water makes it softer, dried cherry, sultana, apricot and some honey. There’s still a slightly piercing quality – tangerine and chocolate.
Palate; Very sweet with plumped up dried fruit. Sultana cake with thick butter and underneath a bowl of nuts; hazelnut and macadamia. A slightly salty quality cutting through the unctuous texture.
Body; Silky soft. Finish; Short with a hint of nut-shell bitterness.
