      A welcoming Clynelish's signature smooth waxiness, couple with citrus fruits. Nice lemony notes, and orange peel. Mineral stone, salted caramel, cosy study room with carpet floor.

      Clean arrival, very citrusy, with a very fluid mouthfeel. More mineral stone, more salted caramel. Simple and crisp. Nice.
    • Finish

      Slight bitterness, almond, slightly salty. Medium long finish, with that limestone mineral notes.

    Today, tasting a Clynelish which I bought a couple of years ago but just opening it recently. Let's see how it tastes.

    Nose starts with light aromas of oranges and vanilla. Then wet stones, earthy notes, fresh peaches, and fresh pencil shavings.

    The palate continues with oranges and vanilla. Chalky marshmallow like those found in breakfast cereals. Some honey and a touch of pepper.

    Finish is long and continues a sharpness that started on the middle of the palate I've not experienced in Clynelish before but am enjoying in this one. Pepper, citrus zest, grass, and a touch of oaky bitterness.
