    Excellent dram!
    • Nose
      Oranges, orange rooiboos tea (cream orange by Ronnefeld), little hint of varnish. Then fried apples, roasted raisins, sweet, warm. Notes of honey, oak wood and a cinnamon somewhere in the bacground
    • Taste
      Spicy at first, warm wood and sweetness of raisins, cherry marmelade. A bit peppery thanks to wood. Some alcohol taste, but covered with earthy taste, little bit like Talisker(?). After a while sweet again, like baked rice with apples.
    • Finish
      Long finish bring associatons with fried plums jam, apple pie with crumble, delicate hints of malt and lots of spices.

    Rhaaa, I love this ultra waxy! Yum, yum! And if not, the contribution of the finish Sherry seems minimalist, I would not have even detected blind. But I suppose he had to bring something, so that the whole thing is so good!
    • Nose
      Very much on candle wax; that is what strikes first by its magnitude. And so much the better, because the "waxy" is a marker that I really like about Clynelish. Behind this wax hides a beautiful fruit composed of green apple, white grapes and a few drops of lemon. A very slight dried flower smoke appears after aeration.
    • Taste
      The fruitiness takes over. Sour apple and lemon. Grape syrup, almost thick and unctuous. The wax is here more discreet, even if still perceptible in the background.
    • Finish
      A peppery explosion occurs on swallowing. The wax is back in force in the foreground. Fruity smoke appears in retro-olfaction.

    A really nice, quite typical Clynelish. Malt Hans gets it right to the point. If only a little more power and density in the middle mouth ...
    Good P / L.

  4. Malt Hans scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Peaty and fruity aroma, heather honey,

    sultanas, lime, vanilla and grass. Vanilla sweet taste, cardamom, mint,

    almonds, mango, honey and malt. Long, spicy, fruity and malty end.
