Nose

Quite spice at the beginning but more black pepper than unbalanced alcohol. Right after you get a bit of sherry but more burn rubber and some lemon. Quite complex and good but not outstanding.

Taste

The taste is better than the nose as the fruity sweetness is now there and brings not only fresh oranges but also honey, again pepper. 

Finish

The finish is nose and long but also not very spectacular.

Comments

A good Clynelish where needs to be said that I have not had many so far. Nevertheless asuming 185€ (LMDW price) I was expecting a bit more but I am not disappointed. Try yourself!

Verry complex fruity and friendly heavy sherry whisky. Apears to me that it could be coming from an old ( real ) sherrycask. It is a bit of a search for the clynelish accents . Though its a great big caracter friendly whisky. Courtesy of Remco . Dankjewel Rem, goeie Sjizzle !

I'd rather have a full bottle in front of me, than a full frontal lobotomy.
