    For all who have not searched yet: it is most likely Clynelish... very good selection Martin, indeed...

    Very delicate Clay, it is necessary to be able to catch such a beautiful barrel. Mr. Martin knows how!

    Nose:

    citruses, waxes, lemon tart, it's easy to find out that it is clynelish, toffee, slightly floral in the background, a little sour

    Taste:

    delicate, at the very beginning it seems almost watery and then strikes, fruit - caramel apples, for me the weakest element of this whisky

    Finish:

    not very long, dry, coffee,

    Score:

    A really great nose, but unfortunately the taste is not up to it - 88/100

  9. Jackson05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    In store sample blind.

    Very nice classy and elegant malt. Not obviously clynelish to me, missing the big waxy notes, but regardless it’s very good and even has some old classy notes such as old antique chair, milk chocolate, hazelnut, a little polish even. Very nice indeed.
