Caledonian Selection Clynelish 1972 29 Year Old Northern Highlands Single Malt Whisky – Cask Strength

Golden hue. Initial nosing passes unearth dry, unfocused, slightly muted scents of malt, sesame and even, in the distance, mustard seed; additional time releases scents of palm oil, lanolin, egg white, slight brine and fresh almonds. Better in the mouth than on the nose, the palate entry is deeply grainy/malty, sweet and oily; by midpalate sensuous tastes of dark chocolate, sugar cookies, brown sugar, oak and honey delight. Finishes medium-long, moderately sweet and succulent. P.P.
