Clynelish 1995/2015 SV Refill Sherry Butt 8683 WID: 77592
Nose: mint, wild honey, beeswax, dried apricots and peaches, shortbread.
Taste: Pure for me not too spicy. Creamy mouthfeel. Forest honey. Milk chocolate. No bitterness.
Finish: The apricots are back. Then comes the wood. Something sulfur. Slightly bitter. Warming. Long, but not very long.
Conclusion: It reminds me of the Clynelish from the single cask season series. Without having the direct comparison, I find more honey here. For the time being, I'm going to take the 89 points from the raccoon, even though the finish could be even longer. Have to try it again diluted. I just had it in the glass again.
In the nose were next to the mint now also clearly herbs there, maybe it hits basil. With water they are still there and displace some of the honey. The apricots are more prominent for this. Great! The butter biscuit goes over to Buttertoast.
Taste with water: praline, apricots, even oranges. Still quite waxy mouthfeel. After a long time, it gets sharper: ginger.
In the finish , he puts first to sweet. But then dries out something. Coffee is coming. Only slightly bitter. Removes walnut. Apricots stay. Still pretty long despite the water.
Conclusion: I stay with my rating. The malt can be diluted well and remains quite faithful.
