Tasting Notes by Billy A
Nose: Cooked apple with cinnamon, warm leather, and stewed plums and raisins. Floating above are lighter fruity flavours, with fresh cut Braeburns, Gummi chews and tinned pineapple.
Palate: Classic Clynelish wax, quickly pushed aside by spice and fruit – more apples and chews from the nose, along with plump raisins and grape-skin tartness. Water brings out more sweetness, with dark-black liquorice and sherbert.
Finish: Fragrant wood resins, tingling cinnamon and lingering medium-sweet apples.
Comment: A well-balanced Clynelish, with the classic waxy spirit character bolstered but not hidden by sherry-cask spiciness.

Heavily sherried, but still perfectly balanced Clynelish. On the nose there is dark honey, some pine resin and hint of peat. Chocolate, exotic fruits, spicy honey, pepper and healthy dose of peat on the palate. The finish is long and "honey-peaty". To get full experience I suggest to decant the whisky first.
