.clynelish - 1997 - 15yo - the whisky cask

55,5% abv, €65, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour

Nose: sweet, caramel, fruit, green apples
Palate: sweet, caramel, apples, white pepper
Finish: dry, long and unpleasant, sour, a hint of sweetness
Mark: +/++++

Conclusion: Again, nothing fancy. Too bad, because I am a big fan of the Clynelish products and had high expectations. This might just be a victim of an independent bottler stuck with an old and worn down cask.

More info: Distilled in 1997, matured in an ex-Bourbon cask, bottled in 2013.
