Wemyss Malts Cayenne Cocoa Bean 1997 (distilled at Clynelish), 46%

Price: $104 Issue: Spring 2015 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

One of two single cask bottlings of 17 year old Clynelish released by Wemyss Malts in the fall of 2014. The hogshead provided 373 bottles. Pineapple and nectarines on the nose, with salted caramel. Mildly herbal. The palate is rich and viscous, with a sprinkling of pepper over sliced red apples, sweet spices, vanilla, and hazelnuts. Lingering in the finish, with lemon; nutty and lightly oaked.£68
