    From Whiskyfun:

    Clynelish 1990/2004 (57.6%, Gordon & MacPhail, cask #11628, First Fill Sherry) Colour: amber. Nose: the sherry is quite obvious but I wouldn’t say it’s got much of its say ‘against’ the big distillate. Some toasted brioche and cappuccino but the overall profile is as waxy, flinty and even mentholated as Clynelish can be. Maybe hints of struck matches and bacon. With water: yes! Granted, it’s not one of these old sherried glories but the mix of tobacco and dried beef and ham that’s now been created is absolutely stunning. An unlit great cigar (say a Lusitania from the best years). Mouth (neat): much more sherry influence this time, and I wouldn’t say it’s rounded, polished sherry at all. Loads of cloves, speculoos, mulled wine, ginger, bitter oranges… Did they manage to overwhelm our beloved Clynelish? Let’s see… With water: you bet! The best fruitcake ever. Finish: wow. Comments: water is obligatory, but then… Congrats G&M. SGP:452 - 91 points (our winner, heartfelt thanks Konstantin).
