    I am not a lover of heavily sherried Clynelish, the profile is swamped with this offering.

    Nice but it lacks balance, too much happening at the front of the palate which makes it a little rough.
    • Nose
      I immediately thought of germlines but this is a sherry monster and the prunes, coffee, dark fruits are all there in the mix.

      There is also cococola, and shoe polish.
    • Taste
      Reminds me of Glendronach Parlaiment a little but much rougher.

      There is dark and milk chocolate, with caramel cream and chocolate cake.
    • Finish
      Long, and creamy but powerful with it.

    Do not be fooled by
    the initial whiff of rubber. It evaporates quickly to allow a very nice
    sherried Clynelish.
    • Nose
      The nose shows quite
      a bit of rubber at first, if you ask me. Not so nice. It is so dominant that I
      have a hard time detecting any fruit. With effort some plums and oranges
      emerge. Hint of espresso. Beeswax? Oh, wait. The rubber disperses to reveal
      more sherry. Aniseed. Cough candy. Yes, it recovers nicely. Pineapple on the
      grill. Candied sugar. New leather. Tiger balm. Thyme. It has a strange herbal
      side, but it works.
    • Taste
      The attack is fairly
      spicy and mildly oily. Cloves, cinnamon and aniseed again. The fruit is very
      clear now. Plums, sultanas, Seville oranges. Cold coffee. Whipped cream. Mild salty
      lining, even. It keeps improving.
    • Finish
      The medium long
      finish on sherry is a bit dry.
