Virtual Event: Waxing Lyrical! Clynelish with Matt Bailey and Nick Edwards

From AUD $79.00
  • Duration: 90 Minutes (approx.)
  • Product code: PTAALU

Testing, testing... Set yourself up at home on the 8th of July with 5 x 15ml pours of Clynelish single malt, and turn your microphone on! Whisky & Alement invites you to pick the brain of not one, but two of the country's top Whisky Ambassadors.

The long renowned 'waxy beast' of the Scottish highlands, mouth-coating and sometimes mineralic, part of the reason Clynelish is so unique is due to an intentional gunk build-up in the feints receiver. Distillery staff found that when removed during the annual clean, it changed the character of the spirit dramatically.

Take part in a coastal, Clynelish deep dive with Nick Edwards (Diageo) and Matt Bailey (The Scotch Malt Whisky Society) as we tackle all things texture and taste. Crack into some unrepeatable whiskies; distillery releases, and single casks alike. 

Flavor profile of Clynelish distillery:

A textural anomaly! Soy candles, bright orange sherbert, vanilla cream waters, old lemonade, fresh citrus
