[March, 2017]  This is the typical modern Clynelish profile to its extreme:  If you like it you will sip more than one dram an evening - if not, do not go for it.  I bought a bottle for 81 Euro in March, 2017.

It is quite meaty (grilled bacon stripes over baked pineapples spiced up with a shot of lime juice and some white pepper) and imbedded in a sweet mouth-watering and nicely balanced wooden structure.  There are some strange, unusual off-notes too but they are not unpleasant (to me).  One to chew for minutes before swallowing.

Given its price this is a clear buy for anyone who likes this profile.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Plenty of distillery character.Nicely rounded with pineapple chunks, orange zest and some scented candle. That citric element continues with water: old lime and grapefruit hulls, then distant wax.

Taste

Soft and quite sweet with good waxy feel.The candle has been snuffed and there is floral element,alongside hits of citrus and sweeter soft fruits. Big estery notes.

Finish

Plenty of pineapple again. Middle long  aftertaste.

Comments

Not bad after almost two decades.
