Clynelish 15 Year Old - Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Clynelish 15 Year Old Bottling Note

This fruity Clynelish was distilled on the 3rd April 1997 before a 15 year maturation in a single refill hogshead. We then selected and bottled the cask on the 28th November 2012. There are just 255 numbered bottles available.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Stem ginger and waxy fruit aromas initially, followed by fresh lemon and orange notes with some ripe pear and apricot with time in the glass.

Palate: This is a mouth-coating dram with tropical fruit flavours, notably melon and mango with a little peach sweetness at the back.

Finish: A fruit salad of peach, lychee, raspberry and dried apricot. Delicious and lingering.

Overall: Clynelish doing what Clynelish does best. This is a fruit-forward whisky with the merest hint of the Scottish coastline.

User Reviews of the Clynelish 15 Year Old - Single Cask (Master of Malt)

Peaches and Cream dusted with Black Pepper

Upon opening I was reminded of sweet jelly beans initially. However, once exposed to air it quickly settled down and my notes were remarkably similar to the Master of Malt notes above. Fresh ginger, fresh and fruity, citrus fruits followed by apricot and cantaloup, tropical fruits. Returning the empty glass there's heather honey and toffee notes.

On the palate there is an immediate spicy kick which quickly mellows revealing the fruit again, melon and peaches. The mouth feel becomes smooth and creamy and I tweeted 'peaches and cream, dusted with black pepper' The sweet peaches and spice slowly fade away and I picked up a lovely faint aniseed flavour as a light saltiness finishes the experience.
