Clynelish 13 yo (1998/2011), CWC, 45,8 %

Review #302
It is from the series “Exclusive Range” and comes from a hogshead with the casknumber 7758. 365 bottles were made. Sweet cake, malt and grass in the smell. A bit odd combination, but it works. Light fruity notes and marzipan.

I still get the cake sweetness in the taste, but some spicy notes makes an entrance. The finish has some more oaky and nutty notes but the sweetness is the thing that stays to the end. Thick vanilla ice cream, oh yes!

A great desert whisky from Clynelish. The sweetness mixed with different things from smell to finish is just great and the strength of this whisky is just perfect. I will rate this 87/100 (21/22/22/22).
