A classic Wilson & Morgan release, a match made in heaven: the robust and unique malt from Clynelish, with the added wonderful sun-bathed fragrance of Marsala from Sicily.Few whiskies are as suited to Marsala finishing as Clynelish, although the final result is not always the same. In this edition, there is a delicious contrast between dryness and sweetness, between honey richness and a more astringent nutty character.But there’s more: the highly perfumed, almost floral, aromas are well matched by ripe apples and candied oranges, while in the background the usual waxy and mustardy flavours of Clynelish can be found.
Very intriguing, and definitely as flamboyant as one should expect from such an unusual bottling.
