Clynelish turned 200 years old in 2019 and to celebrate its bicentennial, a 20-year old limited edition was released during the inaugural Highland Whisky Festival. Exclusively available at the distillery, it matured in bodega sherry casks and refill American oak casks. Only 1819 bottles were available as nod to the year Clynelish was founded.

Tasting Notes

"Clynelish and sherry maturation doesn't always work, unless the integration of cask and spirit is top notch, which is the case here. Thick notes of beeswax with soft notes of red fruits in the background, there plenty of room for the classic Clynelish profile to shine. The palate is earthy, sherried and waxy with a good amount of farminess. Worthy of celebrating such an iconic distillery!"
