Tasting notes
Taster   Gavin D. Smith
Nose: Ozone, brine, peardrops, with malt emerging in time.
Palate: Dry, spices, some peat notes, robust malt, French mustard. Silky mouth-feel.
Finish: Long and spicy.
Comment: Well-balanced and complex as a Clynelish should be. A good, solid afterdinner dram.
8.0
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Soft. Baked white peach, hint of candlewax. Juicy Fruit chewing gum, thick fruit syrup. With water becomes more oily (dubbin). Some soft pear. Overall quite light.
Palate: Silky texture with a bouncy rubbery feel. Oak in balance. A little flat.
Finish: Tightens slightly to oakiness.
Comment: That peachiness made me think of a Clynelish Bellini.
