I'm new to the world of single malt or whisky in general. I've always enjoyed it but just recently began to research, attend tastings and experiment. So here is my first review:

I purchased this bottle as a compliment to my bottle of talisker to bookend Thanksgiving dinner. Clynelish to start, Talisker as the after dinner drink.

Nose: on first smell very salty, sea weed. After a few more sniffs a stronger floral smell comes through and some vanilla.

Taste: I'm not really sure where to begin. For me it is a bit complex. Smoke (but not too heavy which I enjoy), definite sea salt, floral or grass(?). The more I sip the more sweetness I notice.

Finish: malty vanilla smoothness

Aftertaste: small hint of a medicinal tinge/ iodine maybe?

That is about the best I can do, but wanted to contribute to the site as I really enjoy learning from the other reviewers.
