Clynelish. Thanks, Niek & Ilse, for this wonderful gift.
The nose is somewhat
waxy, with flints, grapefruit, apples (skin included) and pear. To be honest,
it is a bit simple, but far from unpleasant.
It arrives creamy,
but somewhat light. The aromas of the nose return with a smidgen of spices and
liquorice. Aniseed, too. Ginger. Touch of pepper. Typical Clynelish, but
‘small’ if you catch my meaning.
The finish is medium
long on white fruit and liquorice.
