Deep gold – just like the missing sunshine. Good beading, suggesting good mouth texture, and a little nose prickle. The initial nose is of French apple tart, with rolling tobacco and sphagnum moss behind; later a trace of sweet shortbread and toasted flaked almonds. Sweet and hot to taste, with a fresh, perfumed aftertaste. The Clynelish characteristic waxiness appears with water, and a fresh floral note (freshly laundered linen). Then a trace of the biscuit note re-emerges. Buttery Jersey cream in the development with a very soft mouthfeel; teeth-coating. An overall sweet taste, with a hint of salt and a lightly spicy finish. An excellent summer’s dram on a wet day!
