Nose: Yeasty dough, cream, lemon peel, salted caramel, apples, white grape.
Taste: Sweet, floral, creamy grapes and pears. Very complex, more salted caramel, waxy lemon peel and cream.
Finish: Lightly peaty, rubbery. Sweet and ashy. Mild complexity here with medium length. That beautiful creamy waxy fruit and lemon peel is fantastic. This is really quite good.
Overall: I’m rating this a Rank 8. It’s really very good and the complexity is great. It’s without a doubt old Clynelish in my mind and that is my jam as of late. I love the profile and the finish is pretty good too. That being said, while this is a great bottle, it’s over priced. Which explains why I have a sample of this and not the entire thing.
Thanks for reading!
