      Oh, it’s absolutely waxy here! A piece of cream cake is ready too. Some honey is trying to hide themselves, not a slightly one here. After 3mins, a sweet muskmelon is rolling out from the glass. Wait for another 3mins, it smell sweeter. Oh, the citric can’t wait to show up itself. A hint of caramel too. It’s smell like some healthy and fresh mixed juice with peaches and pears now. Overall, the nosing is pretty rounded and pleased.

      The body is just medium. Of course it is a waxy cat. Also, tasted a little bit peppery and sweet here. Honey says that she stays with us till the last drop was finished. A hint of pears, but it hides pretty well too. The cream cake in nosing has turned into butter. Do you like the taste of wood? I can imagine that I am drinking some fresh furniture…
      With 2 drops of water : Good news! Some pleased taste are coming out slightly! Peach and more peaches is here after 3 mins. The furniture become low profile but it’s still here.

      Long. Waxy stays. Mint is growing in my month, luckily it is not a peppery one. Pears make the finish better. Some cream was shown up in the aftertaste. The wood is turning into green apples.

    Tried at The Mash Tun in Tokyo, quite typical well-rounded waxy highland Clynelish.
