    1507) Clynelish, 1997, 21YO, # DL12781, XOP, Douglas Laing
    • Nose
      N- Starts rather sharp here with lemon, young mango and lawn, all those aromas that make you extremely hungry, so I need a break to had a bread before can proceed... The scents of rack filled with various candles that gives you this oily waxy sphere around, immersing mixes of floral, citrus and orange essence, striking on the right mood with a lychee tea sweetened by clean and lightly sweet barley, lurks of comforting farm-y notes. (91/22)
    • Taste
      P- Tender and rounded, not as acidic but with sweet citrus and multi dried fruits studded brown bread. Roasted nuts coated with wild honey and berries. Well composed Cosmopolitan. (90/22)
    • Finish
      F- Medium-long, sticky barley sweet, citrus and honey, notably an hint of old books and muskiness at the tail. (90/22)

      B/B- 91/22

      Weighted Rate- 88pt
