A disarming malt that exudes sheer class.
14 Years Old
Standard (Distillery or blended)
Nose: Excellent complexity with diced carrots adding to the earthy, salady aroma. Some sweetness but drier than usual.
Palate: Fruity, grapey and beautifully mouthwatering: quite different from the nose. Brilliant sub-strata of peat runs throughout and adds a luscious sweetness to compliment the sultanas and spice.
Finish: Smoky and dries rapidly to allow in a cocoa effect.
Comment: A disarming malt that exudes sheer class.
Nose: Sweet grass. Lightly peppery/mustardy.
Palate: Creamy maltiness. Big flavours. Peaty. Seaweedy-fruity.
Finish: A fresh, mustardy attack. Some salt, too.
Comment: The most rounded of this Clynelish threesome. The fuller gold colour suggests more contribution from the wood.
