    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.

    F: medium gold N: Fruit and cereals, no (!) Alcohol, seems closed G: Wow - Fruit and cereals without details - bulky, oily body - warm alcohol - gets hot, it definitely needs water. Sensitive natures could be scared here. A: long, alcoholic, needs water + H2O: water and more water: strong development, the alcohol-blocked aromas emerge: fresh citrus: oranges / nectarines, vanilla, aromatic wood (not: woody), grassy, ​​tea, anise?

    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.
    • 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.

    http://www.weinkenner.de/2012/rare-malts-selections-clynelish-24yo-1972-und-millburn-35yo-1969-24949/ Color: gold
    Nose: Fruit gum, such as a freshly opened Haribotuete, oranges, some salt and a lot of smoke, lively character.
    Taste: Strong creamy onset, malty, caramel, abrasion of orange peel, honey, vanilla and white pepper.
    Finish: Long finish with a honey-like sweetness, carried by orange flavors, caramel and absolutely dry and slightly bitter oak notes.
    Note: The finish is dominated by the wood

    Finish: long with sweet fruits

    Nice!
