    Nose: Typical Clynelish,
    fresh with a bit of spice, hints of a salty sea-breeze... more fruity
    after a little while and of course a tiny bit of waxy notes. Waxy and
    sweet herbal notes remain after the first sip.

    Taste: Starts
    with a lot of sweetness, vanilla and toffey, first sip tickles a bit
    at the centre of the tongue. Then a bit of dry fruits. Oily sweetness
    wrapped in a sparkling/tickling sensation dominates, if you take a
    larger sip. Not to complex body.

    Finish: Sweet notes remain a
    bit longer, but soon you are ready for another try. A tiny little
    tickling reminds you that you just had a very pleasant Whisky.A
    really nice Clynelish. Great balance between Distillery character and
    barrel influence. The alcohol level is well chosen and suits this
    Clynelish perfectly.
