Tasting Note:

A very complex, richly flavoured whisky. Deep, crisp yellow in colour with fine viscosity. On the nose it is reserved with a notes of soft, creamy vanilla and buttery sponge, that soon reveals the familiar Clynelish waxiness, alongside crisp green apple and dry smoke and moss. Medium-bodied and rich, on the palate it is massively comforting. Big, full, creamy and intensely sweet overall, with fruit, malt and toffee; just like a liquid chocolate orange, with a balancing trace of smoke and a little salt. Just as soft, satisfying and harmonious with water, when it’s not quite so mouth-filling. The sweetness is more delicate, with a helpful fruit acidity; buttery homemade cookies and salted caramels, with a little smoky pungency. The finish is warming and smooth: rich, chocolaty and drying, with a peppery aftertaste. A shortbread note, smooth tannins and ripe fruits, then a clean, bittersweet finish with more chocolate orange.
