Clynelish Distillers Edition 1992, 46%

Price: $134.00 Issue: Fall 2011 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This 1992 vintage from Clynelish distillery is part of Diageo's Distillers Edition range of ‘finished' single malts, and it underwent a secondary period of maturation in oloroso seco casks prior to bottling. Sweet sherry, honey, and oranges on the nose, with a gentle note of rum and cloves. The palate initially offers vibrant sherry, sultana, and hazelnuts, with developing cloves, angelica, and spices. The finish is medium in length, with a mild note of enduring ginger. £45 (Not available in the U.S.)
