Wemyss Malts "Bench With a Sea View" 1997 Clynelish. Image courtesy Wemyss Malts. Wemyss Malts names its bottlings based on the tasting notes compiled by its tasting panel, and for this Clynelish, the name fits well. The nose is sweet with honey, vanilla, a touch of oak, hazelnut, and stewed fruits. The taste starts off with brine and peat at first, along with black pepper balanced by oak and an underlying touch of cooked fruits. The finish is long and smoky. Very nice! (November, 2014)
