Wemyss Malts The Highland Mariner (distilled at Clynelish) 1997, 46%

Price: $122 Issue: Summer 2016 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

This Clynelish was matured in a refill hogshead and has been released as part of Wemyss Malts' Single Cask Releases series. The nose yields light caramel, ozone, warm tweed, and soft ginger. Smooth and supple on the palate; soft spices, tangerines, and subtle, spicy oak. Chili notes on the relatively long finish. (341 bottles) £85
