    Excellent Clynelish.
    • Nose
      Soft, grassy floral, greenary, yellow fruits.

      Lightly salty, reminding me of Ritz crackers, with a touch of gentle smoke.

      Very inviting nose.
    • Taste
      Thick, rich, almost waxy, mouth covering.

      Again quite light with sweet floral notes along with very nice cereals.

      An underlying more "beefy" smoked note.

      Growing spice, giving it a good but still gentle kick.
    • Finish
      Good long finish. Sweet and rounded.

      With water it turns a little dryer.

  4. MaltNerd scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Strongly fruity character. A basket full of apples, vanilla and a liter of melted honey. Sweet. A field full of flowers, fresh grass, beeswax and grain. Very friendly and warm aroma.
    • Taste
      consistent with the aroma. Very sweet and waxy, mouth covering. Boiled apples in honey and caramel. Some delicate oak. Very warm and friendly taste.
    • Finish
      Sweetness turning into dryness, spices from cask, grassy and some pepper. Medium to long. Wonderful single malt. Clynelish’s style played here amazing with this bourbon cask.
