Very fruity with all sorts of stone fruits like cherries, apricots and peaches. There are also some red berries in the mix. Lots of honey with hints of vanilla. Then sun baked wood, straw and hey – like a old barn in the sun.
Sweet, soft and even more wine-like now. Stone fruits and wild berries are back again. It gets dryer then. Oak, old leather and some peppercorns.
Long and spicy with a certain bitterness from the oak. Hints of caramel and dried strawberries.
A decent whisky finished in an overly active cask. Overall, it was a pretty big disappointment for me. Very one-dimensional and definitely not what I was expecting from a Clynelish that old.
