    • Nose
      87 87
      Honey, nectar, green apples, lemons, chalky, pollen, sniff of smoke but vanish rather quickly. Water brings out pears and custard, creamier and sweeter too.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Light alcohol burn arrival but not aggressive. Vanilla stays on, minerals and salty on the background. With 3 drops of water bring out the more pears, honey notes, whisper of chalkiness and smokiness.

      Mid-long. Sweet, fresh, fruitiness. Waxy coated and mouth watering. Touches of pepper and hints of bitterness but it’s a enjoyable bitterness all encircled by the Clynelish’s fruit sweetness.
