    Colour: Pale gold
    Nose: A very nice nose, quite mineral, fruity, with some
    pear, honey, heather, apricots, and some juicy oaky notes.
    Taste: Smooth,
    clean, quite light, slightly mineral, quite juicy, with the similar fruity notes
    than in the nose, with some additional floral contributions, as well as citrus,
    honey and spices. The finish is long, waxy, slightly creamy, mineral and bitter,
    with some cold ashes, citric fruits and a thread of smoke.
    General
    Impression: A beautiful old fashioned-like Clynelish, light, and nicely
    juicy.

    Waxy to perfection, with nice notes of citrus fruits and yellow fruits, and a superb minerality evoking a good Riesling. After aeration, iodine and a slight smoke appear.

    The mouth is to match, powerful but the alcohol is well integrated, very austere, mineral devil, iodized, waxy and lemony, the barrel with premium notes of ginger and white pepper.

    The finish is very long, in the right line of the mouth.

    A superb Clynelish!

    Color: Gold

    Nose :
    Alcohol mastered, no aggressiveness.

    Austerity and
    minerality are well to go for our greatest happiness.

    Nose on the wax as well
    only nice fruity notes, on the yellow and acidulous fruits,
    lemony.

    Then we have
    beautiful hints of honey, iodine and hints of eighth.

    Very coastal.

    The addition of water makes
    bring out the honey and the wax that blend to a superb
    smoke.

    Mouth :
    Yellow fruits and citrus are also present in the mouth.

    Beautiful notes
    marines then arrive on the iodine.

    The mouth evolves on
    mineral and waxy notes.

    The addition of water
    accentuates the notes of perfectly melted honey with fruits, as well as
    minerality and a slight smoke.

    Endless final
    honey and minerality of the mouth.

    Superb, the Riesling
    whisky for its minerality and its austerity.

    Superb ! Clynelish at its best. Needs plenty of time to explore.
    • Nose
      Dry white wine, limes and candle wax. Develops more flavors after some time. Quince jelly and acacia honey. A little bit closed.
    • Taste
      Rich and extremely satisfying. Lemoncake, ginger, beeswax and white oak.
    • Finish
      Long and satisfying. Sweet lemon icing. Very clean and pleasant.
