    from a friend
    • Nose
      Crystallized fruit, honey, lemon, vanilla, and that typical Clynelish
      waxiness. Obviously in a good place. Creamy frosting, bounded by some
      wood. Lemon cream pie with some vanilla whipped cream. Slightly vinuous,
      too, on German white. Really delicious even if a touch linear. (with
      water) Water flattens out the nose somewhat. More wood and candied
      lemons, and light wax. Very clean.
    • Taste
      Wow, this thing is punchy. Extremely vivid. It sort of explodes and is
      above it's abv at this point (even as we near the 60% mark). Honey,
      delicious wood, and vanilla. Lemon zest. Fizzy. Chili. Ginger. Banana,
      mango, and pineapple hidden away as well. Delicious. (with water) About
      the same, but the wood is just a touch out of balance now. Still pretty
      damn feisty.
    • Finish
      I liked this a lot and think that it's a very good one. The palate is
      surprising, the nose has some verve, but nothing prepares you for the
      punchiness. Delish, and a decent variation of the standard Clynelish
      profile.
