Tasting Notes by jwise
This sample came from the Drink by the Dram program by Master of Malt. I have heard a lot about this malt, so I have been eager to try it out.
Clynelish 14yr is bottled at 46%, and is a light sunlight color.
Nose: Delightful nose, and very crisp. There are notes of vanilla and honey, along with a strong floral bouquet. Coming back to the nose, I am getting some ripe berry fruit.
Palate: Wonderful! Refreshing and lively. Lots of floral notes coming through, and even a little spice on the tongue.
Finish: Long finish, with really great spice and honey notes coming through. Very floral.
This is a really great whisky. It has matured very well, and has no spirity or youthful characteristics. Quite good!
