Color
Pale gold
Nose
Nez bonbon au citron. Abricot.
Médicinal. Beaucoup d'eucalyptus.
Vraiment très bien intégré.
Léger minéral sobre.

On a aussi un léger côté beurré, presque toasté. Super.
Taste
Bouche très fruitée. Agrumes. Fruits jaunes. Miellée
Minéral qui ressort à fond.
C'est vraiment très équilibré niveau arômes. 
Légèrement floral sur les fleurs blanches. 
Un poil alcoholeux mais vu la bête ...
Finish

Finale super longue miellée sur le citron, l'acacia.

Comments

Goûté en parallèle du DL OMC 71 #5055.

Le nez est un peu moins noble, mais la bouche est sacrément racée. c'est un match nul.

Superbe.

F: mittleres Gold

N: Frucht und Getreide, kein (!) Alkohol, wirkt verschlossen

G: Wow - Frucht und Getreide ohne Details - wuchtig, öliger Körper - warmer Alkohol - wird scharf, der braucht eindeutig Wasser. Hier könnten empfindsame Naturen sich erschrecken.

A: lang, alkoholisch, braucht Wasser

+H2O: Wasser und noch mehr Wasser: starke Entwicklung, die vom Alkohol blockierten Aromen treten hervor:

frische Zitrusfrüchte: Orangen/Nektarinen, Vanille, aromatisches Holz (nicht: holzig), etwas grasiges,Tee, Anis?

Color

Nose

Honey, melon,wax,shoe polish,citrus.

Taste

Mouth coating, viscous on almonds, lemon and it is quite drying.

Finish

Huge but the alcohol burn is prickly.

Comments

WITH WATER

Flowery and fresh cut wood, it is it seems even thicker now which I put down to the Clynelish trademark waxiness. I also get fruit gums and fruit zest.
The finish is massive but I think it needs water to enjoy it properly and not just a few drops either.
