Un très court instant, des pommes. Puis, caramel, farine. Pas très intense, mais agréable. En bouche, assez juteux et bien corpulent, le côté cireux ne transparaît que dans la texture, moins que dans le goût. Finale courte, par contre.

Enthousiasme 3/5

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Very sweet with a very strong bourbon influence. Apple juice, banana, caramel, honey, vanilla sugar and almond.

Taste

Caramel, banana, vanilla sugar, pear, apple, almond and honey.

Finish

Mainly red apple. Caramel, banana, vanilla and a whiff of smoke.

Comments

Nice for such a young whisky and good value for money, but I miss the waxiness of older Clynelish.
