    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 228 bottles from cask no. 12379
    From a refill ex-Bourbon hogshead, this is the colour of summer gold, possibly a Gewurztraminer. Excellent beading suggests good mouth texture, typical of well-aged whisky from this distillery.
    A little nose prickle to start, faintly mineralic, flinty and waxy, possibly waxy sweet cakes, frosted icing and ripe banana skins (again typical of the make). After a while, a fruity note appears, lychees or mangosteen, and Turkish Delight. Finally, the maritime notes appear with clam shells on a beach. 
    Candle wax increases in the taste, both oily and sweet, with herbs, honey roast ham (quite meaty) and melting icing sugar, orange a cinnamon.
    With water, it becomes more peppery – fine white pepper. 
    Smooth with a big texture, mouth-filling, teeth coating – everything you’d expect from Clynelish.
