    Sampled at Boisdale Canary Wharf. The end of a long session, didn't feel on top form.

    The nose shows the classic RM markers, with dustiness and a slight sourness. The palate is fruity, with menthol, lemon and aniseed. The finish is long and salty.

    Nice old Clynelish that arrives a bit strong at first but then settles down quickly with or without water.

  9. ARDBERG scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Alcohol prominent on the nose. Behind it peaches, yellow plums, mangosteens, pineapple and mangos appear. Utterly lucious, ripe, almost dripping.

    The taste is resembles the nose, with quite a strong grip and warming on the tongue and throat, and it takes a looooooooooong time going down predominantly with some ripe pineapples appearing when chewing. (If you like ripe pineapple, check out Glenlossie 1997 FR cask 6766). Oily.Wood kicks in quite a long time after the fruits and the alcohol have been washed away from my tongue.

    With water, this bad fruity boy becomes quite a fruity softie (with yellow honey melons appearing). Whereas I prefer the nose with water, I prefer drinking it without.From a sample.

    Tasted in parallel with the WTO DL 71 # 5055. The nose is a little less noble, but the mouth is damn racy. it's a draw.
    Superb.
    • Nose
      Lemon candy nose. Apricot. Medicinal. A lot of eucalyptus. Really very well integrated. Light mineral sober.
      There is also a slight buttery side, almost toasted. Great.
    • Taste
      Mouth very fruity. Citrus. Yellow fruits. honeydew Mineral that stands out. It is really very balanced level aromas. Slightly floral on white flowers. A bit of alcohol but the beast ...
    • Finish
      Final super long honey on lemon, acacia.
