    Very expensive Clynelish but it's rare to find an older single cask these days. Exquisitely pure Clynelish waxier than the 1995-1997 bottles. Doubting between 91 and 92 points but I will give the benefit of the doubt for the extra wax :)
    • Nose
      Huge wax, paraffin, oil, juicy peaches and a mineral touch. Unmistakably Clynelish
    • Taste
      It starts with some citrus (blood orange, grapefruit) before a thick oily waxiness takes over. Then a pinch of salt.
    • Finish
      Very long, on waxes, oils and some lemon.

    While the nose is one of the most delicate ones, I've ever had for an "old" bourbon cask matured Clynelish, the mouth (neat) is not very fruit driven, related to that big waxy and fruity nose. The finish is more bitter than fruity.

    Nice but somewhat restrained nose, great taste, slightly sweetish, powerful, you notice the 50.1%. Alcohol very well integrated. Beautiful long finish that bizzles! Minimal bitter finish. Very good malt, but for € 300 VK no bargain ...
