Clynelish 18 Year Old 1996 vintage Highland single malt Scotch whisky. Single cask refill hogshead bottled October 2014 by Hunter Laing & Co. for the Old & Rare Platimum Selection. 304 bottles.
A pale gold coloured whisky with a sweetly mellow nose of vanilla custard, strawberry preserve and delicate soft fruit aromas. On the palate it is buttery and full bodied, with vanilla dominating and distinct notes of butterscotch, pear drops and apple skins. The finish is long, dry and sweet with a fruity, oaky aftertaste.
