  3. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Where's the sherry in this whisky? Should have been a very inactive sherry cask.
    • Nose
      At first acidic (baby sick?). Fortunately more fruity sweetness later on. Passion fruit, melon and pear. With time it gains more complexity.
    • Taste
      Typical Clynelish mineral flavours. Tropical fruit and maly notes. Some spice (stuffed peppers and cloves) at the end.
    • Finish
      Not that long. Bitter-sweetness. Oaky.

    The nose ruins this one for me, and I was very surprised that the palate & finish doesn't show anyof the for me revolting notes, but is actually very intersting and quite pleasant.
