Clynelish Select Reserve (2015 Release) / 56,1% – In 2014 for the first time ever Diageo included non-age-statement expression in their highly respected Special Releases range. It was Clynelish Select Reserve, a creation of Dr. Jim Beveridge, Johnnie Walker master blender. The whisky was a big hit and next batch followed a year later. However bottled without age statement, we know that the youngest component was 15 years old. Just like a year before, the whisky was a marriage of first fill ex-bourbon barrels, rejuvenated and refill American oak hogsheads and first fill and refill ex-sherry European oak butts. Bottled at 56.1% abv with an outrun of 2946 bottles.
Nose: rich ad evolving, slightly waxy, forest floor, vanilla, toffee, crispy green apples, hints of citrus, cacao, touch of peat and oak.
Palate: complex and nicely balanced, fruity and malty, vanilla custard, toffee, green apples, grapefruits, orange zest, dash of salt and fading hints of peat smoke.
Finish: long, fruity and spicy with salty tang.
