Tasting Notes from Whiskyfun (Serge Valentin)
Nose: medium aged Clynelish at its best. Sharp like a blade, mineral, waxy (of course), almondy and smoky. Added whiffs of wet wool and rubbed lemon zest. Lemon honey. My kind of whisky.
Mouth: ultra-clean, excellently sharp, smoky and waxy. Smoked tea and lemon squash, black pepper and rosemary. Hints of rose liqueur give this one a funny oriental edge.
Finish: long, on the same flavours, with just the pepper growing bigger. Extremely coherent.
Comments: a big Clynelish at 46%, for Clynelish lovers. SGP:355 – 88 points
