    http://www.weinkenner.de/2013/clynelish-2012er-abfuellungen-von-thosop-belgien-und-svenska-eldvatten-schweden-26737/ Color: Old Sauternes

    Nose: Sweet-sticky raisins, tobacco, cold ashes, very
    earthy notes with lots of cocoa and dark chocolate. To
    Pear schnapps with nougat and nuts. In the background
    some gum and fresh oak wood; perfectly integrated.

    Taste: Fat and quite sharp start on
    Sherry-orange, chocolate and raisins. After the shepherds themselves
    has put something, the pear flavors come back to better
    Validity, in combination with ginger ale. Again, nuts and light
    bitter woody aromas towards the finish.

    Finish: long, with fresh, wet oak wood; getting nuttier.

    In the background peppery smoke.

    Note: The nut aromas dominate the finish and remain on the tongue for a long time. A good choice of Swedish guys!

    89 points (nose: 89 / taste: 89 / finish: 88)
