Very expressive for a 12 year, good stuff
Quite fragrant, full of stewed fruits like yellow plumb, peach, mango, hint of lemon, orange, sherbet, hints of peat, very faint smoke hints.
You can feel the high ABV on the nose.
Fizzy, sharp and very fruity, all the fruit is here that the nose suggested plus some orange sponge cake.
After a minute of so it gets creamy and more orange mixed with lemon emerges but balance wise it is all over the place which makes this one really entertaining.
Long, fizzy on candied fruits like you get at Christmas
Water has released wisps of cigar smoke and more fruit.
The palate is still fizzy and more fruit is evident with the trademark Clynelish wax coming through and the finish is longer
