Clynelish 29 yo (1984), SMWS 26.106, 58 %

This Clynelish is made from a Refill Ex-sherry Butt, is called ‘Say it with flowers’ and 586 bottles were made. The smell is filled with mint. Some oak vanilla as well, and it is pretty decent on the nose. I spent some time with it in the glass.

The taste is very influenced by the oak. Taste like toasted oak and only some slight hints of sherry. In the finish you get some honey and different nuts.

For a 29 years old Clynelish from a sherry cask I am a bit disappointed. The sherry is almost unnoticeable and you don’t get much complexity. Still a fine dram though. I will give this 86/100 (22/21/22/21).
