This is a new, albeit rather Dickensian name. I mean, Artful Dodger, not Clynelish. Colour: straw. Nose: it is a vertical Clynelish, dry, mineral, paraffiny, narrow, perfect. No, no literature today. With water: ink, hessian and porridge coming out. Quintessential Clynelish nose. Mouth (neat): totally perfect and utterly typical lemony/mineral/waxy Clynelish, clean as a blade, without any wood in the way. With water: lovely touches of sweeter herbs, lime, and wulong tea. And always some citrus. Finish: long, totally clean and fresh – sadly, it’s also quite refreshing, and I know some friends who would quaff this as if it was water. Comments: nothing more to say, this is purely perfect.
