    • Nose
      Pretty floral and fresh for a Clynelish. Vanilla, apple, honey, caramel, orange and lime.
    • Taste
      Honey, vanilla, orange and a lot of chilli pepper. Caramel, whipped cream and limestone. Some beeswax in the background, but to a limited extent.
    • Finish
      Honey, chilli pepper, apple, vanilla, caramel and roasted chestnut.

  4. AlecM scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Nose: honey with lots of soft fruits and topped with spice.

    Taste: More of the same but get vanilla too.

    Finish: brine comes through at the end, but also find fruits steeped in orange juice.

    Adding water brings out trademark distillery waxiness.

    Stunning whisky!
