2009 Clynelish 13 Year Old "Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseur's Choice" K&L Exclusive Cask #307220 Single Refill Sherry Hogshead Nonchillfiltered Cask Strength Highlands Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

SKU #1662297

Another stupendous cask from the hallowed warehouses of the famous Gordon & Macphail company. This impressive operation began as a grocer in Elgin and has become one of the largest stocks of independently owned single malts in the world over the last 125 years. This rare expression from one of Scotland's most renowned and hard to get distillers is tiny window into the unprecedented stocks that Gordon & Macphail command. While not particularly old, the whisky is exquisite. The whisky was filled into second use sherry hogshead from those unique stills in Brora on the 23rd of April 2009. The barrel in question must have been of absolute top quality as it has imparted an unbelievable amount of flavor on this waxy highland malt. But Clynelish's rich weighty spirit is perfectly designed to stand up to powerful wood and wine flavors. The color is a vibrant mahogany, here are the bottlers tasting notes: "NOSE: Rich fruitcake combines sweet raisins and Seville orange. Notes of smooth dark chocolate combine with raspberry compote and subtle aniseed. Taste: Toffee apple notes complement autumnal spices and stewed red fruit. Black currant gives way to toasted hazelnut and charred oak. Finish: Meduim-bodied with spice and a lingering licorice" Indeed! Bottled at cask strength of 57.8% without chillfiltration or coloring, only 244 bottles exist sold exclusively at K&L Wine Merchants.
