Smells tangy. Lemon peel. Pine smoke. Hasty pudding.
Tastes a bit challenging in a good way. Oak. Dried tart fruits. Gloucester cheese. Vanilla. Leather.
Lasts for medium length in the mouth. Bitter oak. Spices. Turning to sweet malt and sugars. Pleasant burn with no water. With a little water, it opens up to a smoother, sweeter disposition. I like it hot and tart without water.
Great paired with an Old Speckled Hen from a smooth flow keg. A swig of ale is the best "water" for this whisky. Nice whisky to sip after fish and chips. Pour freely. No need for just one Clynelish per sitting if you have time in the next morning to wake up without an alarm clock.
