Clynelish 10 Year Old 2008 Collective Scotch Whisky, 70cl, 43% ABV
This 10-year-old Clynelish single malt was distilled in 2008 and matured in a handful of refill bourbon barrels until it was bottled in 2018 for La Maison du Whisky's Artist Collective series. It has a rich malty character, with a distinctive salty edge on the nose, alongside freshly-cut hay, vanilla and clove aromas. The palate offers notes of sea-salt, garden herbs and menthol, developing slowly into vanilla, pineapple, ginger, liquorice and juicy pears.
The Artist Collective features the works of contemporary artists on the boxes and bottles in the series, each style echoing the character of the whisky they represent. This bottle features a piece by Serge Le Fox.
