I never thought he was a Clynelish, because the typical notes are missing. Requires water, as it is very spicy in the beginning, I do not have a typical sherry taste either. With water, this is more recognizable, dried fruits, oak, but also slightly cellar muff in the nose. Tasty but unusual Clynelish.
Candied, caramelised ripe apples, old and soft wood, young gingers, timber logs. With water: distinctive pungent fragrance and a warm slightly sweetness, cinnamon-clove-vanilla bouquet of orientals spices.
Fig taste on arrival. Green apples, green mangoes, cranberries, guavas and hints of lemon and lime. Drops of water brings out combination of a lovely, sourish, sweet, tart fruit.
Long. Fruitiness continue to linger, gazing spices. The sweetness, spices and sourish all clicks together and bring out the harmonius of this distillate.
