    The name doesn't lie, it's spicy alright.
    Although it doesn't rock a precious age statement on the label, a very helpful lady from the folks at the CB told me the following in an email:
    The Clynelish, Dailuaine and Teaninich are all around 10 years old when they are blended before being filled into our custom barrels. They are then aged for a further 2 years before being bottled. This means that most Spice Tree is 12 years old when bottled.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Apple cobbler, beeswax, fresh pears. The nose is sharp and light in character.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Vanilla ice cream with a lot of raisins soaked in rum. A touch of clove and Ceylon black tea.
      Water brightens it up, brings grass and freshly sawn wood to the game.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Burnt caramel and increasingly dryer.

    • Nose
      Colour:
      Dull gold

      Nose:
      Holla ... it really starts very spicy. Ne mix of dry chili and some alcohol. Let stand for a moment ...
      Aha, etz the aromas are slowly crystallizing out. First, I have a very nice, waxy note. Followed by banana, caramel and sweet honey melon. In addition a metallic, cold undertone. From the background comes hay and some immature peach. But there is something very clear. Has something of perfumed soap with floral aromas.
    • Taste
      First very soft start. But then ... now comes the dry chili. But in conjunction with a sweet, provocative honey note. The fruit flavors are rather fruity and immature. Has more flavor of pear in the taste now. Lemon, bitter almonds and cereals. This soapy I think again. And I have to say that I do not find that unpleasant.
    • Finish
      Medium. Spicy, slightly bitter and metallic. At the very end, however, a waxy, sweet mouthfeel forms.

  10. krupoder scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Caramel, ripe pear, marmalade, cherry, fresh grass or foliage, oak.
    Mouth: Pleasant enveloping drying oiliness, cocoa, pepper.
    Aftertaste: Duchess, spice.
    Balance: the overall impression is not bad, but the aftertaste is much weaker than the taste.
    Total rating: 83
    There is another cast. There will be a second round.
