    a clynelish from a bottler
    • Nose
      old plum, then vanilla and sugar
      a few herbs, just after the harvest
      some wax after a while, want to eat it
    • Taste
      grassy at wish
      alcohol comes in suddenly
      there is glue, encaustic just put on a piece of furniture
      a bit bourbonneux with strong vanilla and sweet caramel
      undifferentiated fruits, but on white fruit
    • Finish
      creamy, wax, herbs that last in the glass, not frankly, but steadily!
      a little grilled pear

      Algae.
      Pepper, cereals
    • Taste
      In mouth more round and sweet. On barley, lemon, wax. Very nice.
      Light floral side. Celery.
    • Finish
      Finale on the white fruit, the pear, the goji berry.

    Compared the following casks, all distilled in 1996, all bottled by BB all cask strenght:

    Cask:

    6421 17 yo 92 points

    6422, 17 yo 92 points

    6423, 19 yo 86 points

    This one clearly is one dimentional compared to its siblings. Less fruity, less development, bittery and slightly acid in the finish. Otherwise, not much happening. It does not seem to open up a lot in the glass, not even after leaving it for 30 min. A good quality dram, but dissapointing compared to the other two.
