      The color looks dark, but I'm glad it doesn't smell like a sherry bomb. Quite juicy from the get-go, accompanied by a nice a bit of smoke and burnt oak. Heavy and thick. No sulfur.

      Salty entry, with waves of sweet sherry and fruity sourness. Black tea, smoke again, and some bitter cherries and cough syrup. Good viscosity. Takes water quite well. Forget my comment about this not being a sherry bomb... it's quite sherried.

      A bit of molasses and licorice at the end. Slight bitterness, not egregious. This is clearly a sherry-driven whisky and I'm not exactly sure if this is the best type of Clynelish one can find on the market, to be honest, even though we are seeing more and more of these 20something yo dark sherried Clynelish in the indie market nowadays. This is otherwise a faultless whisky, but I can tell I won't be clamoring for these dark ones. Give me an ex-bourbon cask Clynelish any time.
