but I'm scared to spend the money. Can a few of you give me your take on it? I can only find the 14yr. where I live. Thanks!
You CAN'T go wrong with Clynelish. It is an excellent northern Highland dram with maritime salt and sweetness all rolled into one lip-smacking experience. The 14-Yr-Old is the standard OB offering. Diageo also offers a Distiller's Edition as well. I have written in this forum that Johnnie Walker Blue ain't what it's cracked up to be;and that J. Walker GOLD is far superior at less than 2/3 the price of BLUE and I still stand by that statement. CLYNELISH is the HEART of J Walker GOLD and with more complexity. That's what I like about Clynelish; the complexity. You just keep going back for more. And yes, I do understand that taste is subjective. Pick up the Clynelish. You'll be glad you did.
