Member Ratings and Notes

My notes were a bit sparse on this one, as it was towards the end of the night.  All I had was white wine, punchy, fruity and a comment to try again another night.   Might be in the A- range.

Like Chris, my notes are sparse due to the line up....this one actually bore my name in the blinds (the bottles were named by members present) so you would think I would have paid more attention.....

 

Sweet and minty with some oak spice.

Coal smoke on the palate with more of a minty after taste.

 

I have this as a B+/A- and I am going with the B+ until I re-taste earlier in a session.

Nose:  Light and fruity.  Pears and apples.

Palate:  Much more depth than I would have expected from the light nose.  Fruit at the forefront with a strong malt punching up against it.

Tasted blind, but on seeing what it is I'm very surprised.  This is definitely the frutiest Clynelish I've tasted.

A moderately sweet single malt, and nicely so. Cinnamon and herbs. Grassy, particularly in the finish. A little waxy throughout. Hits the spot without being too crazy in any way. Really great.  B+/A-
