Clynelish 10 Year Scotch Whisky 2023 Diageo Special Release


58% ABV, 750 ml, 2023 Diageo Special Release Collection

Introducing Clynelish 10 Year Old Special Releases 2023 Single Malt Scotch Whisky bottled at natural cask strength - The alluring rhythmic beat of a sweetly honeyed bass anchors a richly composed melody. Gradually, from this sea of smooth harmonies, there comes a call to transcend scales. A solo breaks free, its golden, shimmering tones rising to sublime heights in a haunting, captivating hymn to jazz. The honeyed flavours and smooth, waxy textures of Clynelish play the sweetest of melodies. Along with the mesmerising solo wildcat on the bottle, they inspired our Malt Master to create a whisky to express all the sweet and soulful richness of classic American jazz. Exclusively aged in ex-bourbon American Oak, this expression sings with notes of rich caramel and vanilla spice. Mellow aromas on the nose begin a mineral and maritime theme, then become sweeter and rounder, their golden melody anchored by an earthy bass note. Smooth and sure, the vanilla-sweet, rich and powerful taste is soon shaped by a hint of saltiness and a soaring peppery solo that reaches its smooth crescendo in the long, spicy finish.

HOW IT IS MADE Alluring dulcet tones reach a crescendo with notes of vanilla spice and smooth caramel. Matured exclusively in first-fill bourbon American Oak casks.
TASTING NOTES A richly composed, subtle example of Clynelish, elegantly imbued with rich caramel sweetness and vanilla spice while retaining excellent distillery character. Very pleasant to drink, it brings to mind a summer moorland.
OCCASION Clynelish 10 Year Old is a unique gift that stands out within the Special Releases collection, and is perfect for get-togethers with friends or family.
SERVE Best served neat, pour 50ml of Clynelish 10 Year Old in a whisky glass and enjoy.

About Diageo’s Special Releases
During the late 1980s, the benchmark expressions of single malt whiskies from six single malt distilleries became well known under the CLASSIC MALTS name. Interest in older and rarer malt whiskies in general also grew during this period. One product of this was the RARE MALTS, a series of rarer releases begun in 1995, and which ended in 2005. There remained a demand for unusual, distinctive, often older, unrepeatable cask strength bottlings, usually of the CLASSIC MALTS. Such bottlings allowed collectors, connoisseurs and enthusiasts to enjoy and experience remaining older stocks, and/or unusual expressions of a distillery’s character - a treasure trove of priceless malts. To satisfy this demand, the SPECIAL RELEASES series was born in 2001, and the annual collection - with familiar names and some surprises - has been eagerly awaited by enthusiasts ever since.
