Morrison & Mackay
Carn Mor Clynelish 1997 Celebration of the Cask
A first-ever from the guys at Morrison and Mackay sees this Clynelish single cask that has been fully matured in a Sherry Puncheon for exactly 20 years to the day.
A wonderful whisky with a fantastic full-on flavour profile. Treacle, oranges, chocolate, root beer, liquorice and syrup are all present. A spicy tingle on the tongue gives a little heat, which is acceptable given it's 57% ABV but it works so well without adding water that drinking neat is an absolute joy.
Adding water does take off the spicy notes and adds a little vanilla to the mix as well as a bit more chocolate sweetness.
