Exclusive Malts (distilled at Clynelish) 21 year old, 52.5%

Price: $265 Issue: Fall 2017 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Distilled in October 1995, this single cask was aged in a refill hogshead (#10206). Primrose, ginger, cedar spice, and malt on the nose, with a hint of salt and background heather; complex. Slightly oily on the palate, with orchard fruits, milk chocolate, a suggestion of brine, and developing cloves. Dries quite rapidly in the finish, with more cloves and light oak tannins. (190 bottles)
