Clynelish 10-Year-Old Special Release 2023 The Jazz Crescendo

Part of the Special Releases 2023 ‘Spirited Xchange’ from Diageo, this is the Clynelish 10-year-old single malt called ‘The Jazz Crescendo’. This release was inspired by 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. It was bottled at cask strength.


Tasting Notes

Nose: a mellow, crisp nose with quite some impact. The top notes are very faintly waxy but are mainly mineral and maritime, suggesting soft sea breezes, slaked lime, and salt crystals; the mid-notes become sweeter, hinting at dusty heather pollen; while the base is lightly woody and earthy, the earth faintly scorched. Late on, the aromas become rounder, with a toffee-sweet suggestion of vanilla fudge.

Taste: Very smooth and, as expected, waxy in texture; the robust taste is sweet with toffee notes, then lightly salty, and soon cradled by a growing peppery warmth.

Finish: long, smooth, dry, and spicy, with a trace of dried coconut in the aftertaste.
