    WITH WATER

    It really changes with water and its very smooth on pineapple and candied sweets. The more water you add the sweeter it gets.
    When watered down it reminds me a little of the Scapa 16 year OB but sweeter.

    An excellent young cask strength Clynelish, with water its just about perfect.
    Just so easy to drink.
    • Nose
      (sample)
      Orange ,lemon,honey.
    • Taste
      Substantial, chewy, sill on orange,lemon,honey. It tastes much older and its sweet and smells like old furniture (well polished wood with beeswax).
    • Finish
      Long on bittersweet notes.

    Awesome on the nose. Excellent whisky. Too complex to unravel on a single occasion.
    • Nose
      Spicy, leather, Brown sugar, fresh, aromatic oak, fruits, exotic fruits, nuts (hazelnut or maybe walnut)
    • Taste
      Full-bodied, creamy, nuts, dark chocolate, complex, ginger
    • Finish
      Long and smooth

  7. Magnus Hillman scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This is a fantastic dram with incredible depth and complexity. Unfortunately, not easy to find anymore.
    • Nose
      On the nose, cereal, barley sugar, spices and some distant oil paint. Water addition brings out leather, brown sugar, exotic fruits, mixed nuts and brown butter. After 10-15 minutes dark roasted coffey beans appear.
    • Taste
      Initially warm and spicy with a creamy mouth feel, pine apples, black pepper, pecan nuts and ginger.
    • Finish
      The finish is long and warming with bitter chocolate, mild pepper and sweet fruit puree followed by a second wave of milder dark chocolate.
