Clynelish Special Reserve. Image courtesy Diageo. Part of Diageo’s Classic Malts 2014 Special Releases, and the first in that series to have no age statement or vintage. The nose has a good balance of spices with apple pie, graham crackers, honey, and a touch of oak. The taste is spicy with cinnamon, clove, and allspice notes that fade very slowly to reveal apple pie, pencil shavings, and a hint of licorice. The finish is dry with a touch of licorice, a slight ashiness, and oak. (January, 2015)
