Cladach Special Release 2018 Blended Malt Whisky
Cladach in Gaelic means “shoreline.” A blend created with distilleries lapped by the sea. From the Inchgower beaches come intense, spicy notes, from the Clynelish wind come delicate floral aromas and sweet cream notes. Oban’s port life is reflected in fruity, smoky notes.
The bay of Caol Ila exudes fresh, sweet and salty aromas, while the rocks of Lagavulin reveal their secret character, intense and peaty. Finally, the granite mountains of Talisker give off a sweet, malty warmth. This distillate is a high-end piece of engineering.
The nose is delicate; marine notes, salt, sand and seaweed surround a vinous core on a spicy base. The palate experiences a rich and engaging sensation. Pleasant to taste: salty after a somewhat sweet start. A smoky warmth fills the palate. Then sweet notes of brown sugar that anticipate notes of fresh mint and licorice on the finish.
The finish is fabulous, pungent, spicy and warm.
