Nose

Hurray! Again bull’s eye on the nose! Wonderfully fresh yet waxy nose on all kinds of fruit like melon, lime, candied pineapple, litchi and overripe apples. Lemon grass. A hint of eucalyptus. It evolves towards grapefruit with crystal sugar.

Taste

Wonderfully creamy body and quite powerful despite the modest ABV. Sweeter than the nose promised on barley sugars and honey. Citrus dominates, quite zesty, upholstered with pepper and quinine. Liquorice. Some nuts. Roasted almonds? Comes very close. Delicious.

Finish

The finish is quite long, remains peppery and bittersweet with a salty edge at the death.

Comments

At cask strength this would be do die for. Scary good Clynelish.
