Color
Amber
Nose

Candlewax followed by fruit, from green to more tropical. Freshly cut apples, lemon, pineapple, banana and mango. There's some ginger here too, and after a while it gets a bit grassy with some cane sugar. But in the end it is the fruit that returns and dominates.

Taste

Waxy with orange, lemon, tangerine and a bit of oak (sawdust). Some vanilla, and chalk with ginger and grapefruit, also some wood spices.

Finish

White grapes, pear and apples and lots of wax. Very long.

Comments

Not much to say here, except for that it is certainly one of the best modern Clynelishes I've tasted.

All things considered (nose, taste, finish) / overall judgement:
In my opinion the Clynelish 1995 SMS (http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/55443/clynelish-1995-sms) is better than this Clynelish 1995 W-F.
And this Clynelish 1995 W-F is slightly better than the Clynelish 1997 C&S (http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/58782/clynelish-1997-cs) and the Clynelish 1998 MBa (http://www.whiskybase.com/whisky/39960/clynelish-1998-mba)

N: Waxy lemon and ginger nose.

P: Big and complex, a pleasing tartness within a warm, creamy, waxy frame.

F: Excellent finish. 

Notes: Fantastic Clynelish, big and smooth, lots of complexity. I prefer this one undiluted.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Oranges, lemons, pineapple, banana, mango, powdered sugar, caramel sauce, maple syrup, grilled agave. No, better yet: there's some mescal in there. No doubt. And of course the famous paraffin wax coating. I love this!! Also some sweet white wine (Muscat) 

Taste

Thick and creamy sweet arrival. Sweet lemonade (lemon drink) with vanilla and flower honey. Very, very waxy. A lot like vanilla scented candles. The total experience is very balanced and civilized. A little water brings out more vanilla and spreads the aroma's a bit more. Is that some woodsmoke? It's the mescal again ;)

Finish

long, a little dry and very waxy (again). In the end it becomes a bit more mineral with some chalk.

Comments

If you like them fruity and creamy it doesn't get any better than this I guess. Just the right balance between fruity spirit and spicy wood influence. Excellent dram!
