Time for another review today! Clynelish must surely be one of my favourite brands. Besides that they almost never dissapoint, I love that typical wax smell that is so characterestic in the Clynelish whiskies. Let’s see what this Clynelish 2001 of Gordon & MacPhail will bring.
This Clynelish has matured in refill sherry casks and is bottled in 2016 at 54 % ABV. (Casks 307489 & 307850)
Clynelish 2001 tasting notes:
Nose: A Clynelish with sherry notes, it does have a bit of waxiness but lacks the full wax power. Some minerals but the sherry notes overpower it a bit (raisins, figs). Still it’s nice and integrated but I just miss a bit of the waxiness. With water: a little bit more of that typical Clynelish smell (fruit, wax some more minerals there) also some citrus underneath.
