    Not the best
    Clynelish 1997 that I tried, but it holds its own. Lastly seen for around 90
    EUR (which I do not find cheap, considering the other bottles of Clynelish 1997
    I acquired in the last two years).
    • Nose
      The nose needs a
      little time to show its true colors. But it is nicely fruity on sugared lime
      peel, oranges and grapefruit. Nice touches of toffee and beeswax. A little
      waxy, but less than I am used to from this vintage. Some grass and flints.
      Candle wax. Hints of almonds. Mildly salty touch. So far so good, but I did
      expect it to be a bit more powerful.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is
      immediately fairly bitter like white grapefruit. Now it is very waxy, I must
      say. Spicy too. White pepper, ginger, liquorice, quinine. Touch of peat that
      allows for a nice smoky development. The salty edge reappears.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium
      long on grapefruit and wood. Mildly bittersweet at the death.
