Clynelish 17 yo (1997/2014), ADR, 46,3 %

Review #303
It is from the series “Individual Cask Bottling” and comes from a sherry hogshead with casknumber 6892. 127 bottles were made. Heavy fruits, berries and tannins at first in the smell with some sweetness from a mix of marzipan and apricots. After the initial smell the dried fruits appear.

The dried fruits comes instantly in the taste and it is great balanced with the wood. In the finish you are left with the oak mixed with the sweetness from plums etc.  The strength makes it easy to drink, and just enough to make the finish long.

A great sherry influenced whisky with the known light style from Clynelish. Just good from start till finish! Nothing too spectacular, just good craftsmanship! I will rate this 88/100 (22/22/22/22).
