1997 has been a good year for Clynelish. Several extraordinary whiskies stem from this year (the manager's choice, Adelphi, David Stirk). This ARCHIVES can surely side with them. Nose: grassy and peppery. Also citrusfruits such as orange. Taste: very fresh, waxy and a bit edgy. Later on more wood and a sweet liquorice. Finish: long finish with more citrus and wood.
