Another day, another Clynelish. Or at least, that’s usually how I wish things went. Unfortunately, it’s been ages since I bought a bottle of Clynelish and even longer since I actually opened one. And that for a dram that comes … Continue reading

Clynelish 16yo, Oloroso finish, 54.9% – Darkness!

The last in a series of five Darkness! reviews. There was no particular order, so don’t assume anything from that. In this case, the fifth one is a 16 year old Clynelish. At cask strength. So far, that’s a recipe … Continue reading
