Well, it won't be sherry, there is more vanilla than fruit aromas, spicy notes, a little sandalwood and yes, there could also be the waxiness. Or is it more wishful thinking? In any case, there are a few herbs, vanilla and then there are fruits, not raisins or dates, but rather dried pears and dried apple rings.
The taste is not particularly complex, but it is easy to drink. Yes, it could be Clynelish. The 14-year-old from the Core Range is a little fruity, but the basic tone is similar. Vanilla with herbs is also dominant in the taste. In the background comes apple compote with cream. Some wood is present, but remains subtle without bitterness. A certain sweetness is present in the mouthfeel, but also remains subtle. Nothing exciting - but definitely tasty.
Yes, the finish is like the previous impression: unspectacular. No conspicuous wood that determines the aftertaste.
This is a good to drink whisky, which could well come from the Clynelish Distillery but maybe also from Blair Athol. It probably comes from refill barrels and has matured well. But then I think the 14-year-old is a tad better and the € 60 may be € 10 too much after all. Is an easy-to-drink whisky without any major highlights.
