Wemyss Malts Apple Basket 1997 (distilled at Clynelish), 46%

Price: $126 Issue: Fall 2014 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

The latest Wemyss Malts single cask offering from Clynelish distillery is a 16 year old expression, matured in a hogshead which gave an out-turn of 339 bottles. The nose offers sea salt and lemon, with emerging green apples and vanilla. Apple tart with custard and a dusting of cinnamon on the palate. The finish is long and peppery, with a hint of freshly-ground coffee beans.£75
