    This just goes to show why I love Clynelish so much. The wax is well present, but there is more. Sometimes fruity and sometimes quite sweet with even a hint of Baklava (a Turkish pastry) in the nose, but also minerals and both an earthy and vegetal note are present here. Delicious stuff!
    • Nose
      Sweet ripe pears and lemon peels. A thick layer of vanilla custard and some lovely wax. Honeycomb and a hint of freshly baked bread. A grassy note and green leaves. Baklava, but also a note of olive oil.
    • Taste
      Rather creamy with notes of creme brulee. Acacia honey. There is a waxy note again and it’s slightly vegetal. A touch of leather? Followed by minerals and lemons. Pink grapefruit, a vague earthy note and a pinch of black pepper.
    • Finish
      A long finish with lemons, vanilla and minerals. A hint of black pepper too.

    Some vegetables and herbs on the nose then the palate is very much on the mineral side of Clynelish with some exotic fruits and candle wax, very nice

    On the nose it's citrus and saline, with iodine and vegetal notes, even some rotting bananas and chalk, along with soft earthy (almost farmy) smoke and vanilla wax. On the palate the vanilla wax gets dialled up, alongside some motor oil and coconut oil, some varnish and woodsmoke, before nougat and candied eucalyptus smoke takes over on the finish.
