- Initital tasting was lower but after 2 months in opened bottle it revealed much more of it's true complexity. A wonderful little gem this one.

- A nice whisky with summer flavors. Not much to complain about really.
Very fresh and a little fruity nose. Oak and some flowery notes.
Very smooth. Fruity and lots of oak, nuts and bark. Vanilla.
Medium long finish, not much flavors though.
- This Clynelish DE 1991 has an amber color, a sweet
and nutty/malty flavour and with a few drops of water becomes fruitier and vanilla and spice arrive.The taste is smooth and sweet, lightly peatyish and fruity and with three or four drops of water becomes even smoother, with more vanilla aroma, fruitier and more softer peat, gets then drier and nuttier.
