Tasting notes by Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange
Nose: Sugared almonds, honeysuckle and nectarines. The fruit continues, with zesty lemon and sweet apple fading to leave royal-icing sweetness.
Palate: Thick and rich, with more nuts and fruit: almonds and apple jam. There's some light fruit cake, oat cask and sweet spice to start, with a sea of raisins and sultanas following behind. Floral notes float around above the whisky, unobscured by a rich base of spice and fruit. Citrus zest notes build through the middle.
Finish: A burst of candied lemon, then liquorice, spiced fruit loaf and gentle barrel char.
Comment: Well balanced and mouth watering – loads of fresh and dried fruit with a distinctive Clynelishiness running throughout.
