Clynelish 10 Year Old “The Jazz Crescendo” Special Release 2023 is a charming single malt with attractive and vibrant aromas. Matured exclusively in American oak barrels, first-fill bourbon. These barrels allow notes of caramel and vanilla spices to be revealed, while retaining the excellent character of the distillery. 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.
