Following the success of the Clynelish Select Reserve release in 2014, Dr Jim Beveridge (Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender) was asked to blend this release using individually selected casks from some of the distillery’s oldest reserves. All the casks used were aged for at least 15 years and were...
selected to particularly emphasis the distillery’s waxy character.
This release was drawn from 24 casks of four different ages across six date fills, mostly American oak but with a combination of five different cask types: first-fill American bourbon, first-fill European oak Madeira, first-fill rejuvenated American oak, refill European and refill American oak.
Part of Diageo's 2015 Special Releases.
