Scotch Whiskey Review: Clynelish 1996 Signatory 21
Clynelish 1996 Signatory 21 / 46% ABV / £120
Tasted neat and with a drop of bottled water
This Clynelish was distilled 11.12.1996 and bottled 28.02.2018, for 21 years maturing in a refill sherry butt #11377. This is bottle #360, which is natural color and non-chill-filtered, but sadly not Cask Strength.
This looks like a sister cask to this Clynelish, so I have high hopes for it!
- Color: burnished (1.1)
- Nose: really soft sherry, windex, grapefruit, caramel, yoghurt and raisins
- Taste: candle-wax, strawberries, lactic acid, pine sap, and more citrus waxiness
- Finish: long, jam with a little oak
Very oily (thanks non-chill-filtering) and coating in the mouth, sweet with soft sherry, and quite tasty. I continue to issue a buy recommendation on ~20 years Clynelish!
