A lovely Clynelish, despite the fact that it does not reach the level of the previously mentioned. This is enjoyment with capital E.
The nose, which is excepitonally clean, shows a lot of honey and grapefruit, making it bittersweet. Very waxy too. Paraffin. Pineapple cubes. The whole is quite mineraly with rocks in the surf and light hints of seaweeds and a pinch of salt. Verrrry good!
On the palte, it continues deliciously with a creamy sweetness. Lots of citrus and some apples. Become quite maritime quickly. Light peat, sea salt. Midpalate I get some tannins and grains, making it younger than its actual 15 years. Towards the end it turns slightly bitter, not from the oak but from the grapefruit. Tonic & soda! Very peppery. Ginger and a whiff of nutmeg.
The finish is medium long to long on grapefruit and dies a bittersweet death.
