Clynelish 21 Year Old Reviews
Tasting notes from Billy Abbott (The Whisky Exchange)Nose: Meadow flowers and chalky candy – both zesty Love Hearts and sweet candy sticks – with a touch of sugared almond and candied lemon. Wax-polished tables and dried apple rings follow, with apple sponge cake as support. Grassy notes build with time in the glass: fresh hay becomes freshly cut grass.
Palate: Soft and very creamy to start, with banana and apple giving balanced sweet and sharp notes. Aniseed spice builds up behind, closely followed by soft hazelnut and almond nuttiness. That wave breaks, revealing a floral core dripping with slightly salted butter and toffee.
Finish: Long but gentle: floral notes fade to leave sweet cream sprinkled with clove and nutmeg.
