    The nose is beautiful and complex, suggesting a fairly old whisky. The mouth is a little less to my taste, although of good quality. The bitterness in particular is present hands well tamed. A pretty Clynelish between 43 and 46%? Bingo !! After rehuming the sample knowingly, notes of honey are noticeable.
    • Nose
      Not very powerful but fresh and pleasant, it is both fruity (white-fleshed fruit) and vegetable (anise, fennel) as well as delicately peaty. Peat grows in the air and becomes animal, but does not become dominant. The fruit also evolves towards the yellow fruits (mirabelle plums). Maritime notes appear, accompanied by sweet spices and a hint of vanilla sugar, while the vegetable aromas fade without disappearing. Very beautiful, complex and edgy nose.
    • Taste
      Medium power, nervous and spicy (pepper), it is more peaty than the nose suggests. The fruit is discrete, citrusy, leaving plenty of vegetable flavors. The oak expresses itself in the form of tannins, bringing a bitterness mastered.
    • Finish
      Pretty short, it develops on the tannic bitterness, before the acidulous notes come back. Then very nice notes of chesnut honey invade the palate.
