Nose

Candlewax followed by fruit, from green to more tropical. Freshly cut apples, lemon, pineapple, banana and mango. There's some ginger here too, and after a while it gets a bit grassy with some cane sugar. But in the end it is the fruit that returns and dominates.

Taste

Waxy with orange, lemon, tangerine and a bit of oak (sawdust). Some vanilla, and chalk with ginger and grapefruit, also some wood spices.

Finish

White grapes, pear and apples and lots of wax. Very long.

Comments

Not much to say here, except for that it is certainly one of the best modern Clynelishes I've tasted.

All things considered (nose, taste, finish) / overall judgement:
In my opinion the Clynelish 1995 SMS (http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/55443/clynelish-1995-sms) is better than this Clynelish 1995 W-F.
And this Clynelish 1995 W-F is slightly better than the Clynelish 1997 C&S (http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/58782/clynelish-1997-cs) and the Clynelish 1998 MBa (http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/39960/clynelish-1998-mba)

N: Waxy lemon and ginger nose.

P: Big and complex, a pleasing tartness within a warm, creamy, waxy frame.

F: Excellent finish. 

Notes: Fantastic Clynelish, big and smooth, lots of complexity. I prefer this one undiluted.
