    Nose: raisins, sherry wine, new Kraft paper + a little strawberry jam, Citrus Fanta. With hint of waxiness, I believe this cutie need more time enlighten the candles.

    Palate: At the begin the flavor of Kraft paper and jam is vivid ; the taste submerged in 5 minutes. Clean sherry (Raisin, light milk chocolate , dried cherry ) Taiwanese melon tea, Demerara Sugar + Fanta. In the middle, the candles are lightened up , more familiar waxy , peaches and apple peels.
    In the finish, the hue of smoke like cocoa powder from sherry cask emerges .Combining with medium long waxiness lingering on the tongue.

    Overall: One of the best Vintage Clynelish ,distilled after 2000, I have ever met . No yogurt-like immaturity, no sulfur. Perfect daily dram.
