Ries
 
Honeycomb wax all through this, rich caramel, and a dark vanilla bean richness. Cinnamon and dry straw in middle with a mineral note. Orange wax in a sharp finish. It's not very complex, but it is done well, and this bottle really amplifies the Clynelish characteristics. The bourbon (?) cask really let's this shine.

When I tasted this the first time blind and I loved it (it was probably the booze) but I texted all my buddies to "buy a few bottles". Now that I'm sober, it was very sound advice - you're welcome!

Ries
 
n: tar and soot with prune juice. Earthen basement, brine, and black grape.

t: burnt blackberry, mexican chocolate, buttermilk, dank earth and oily with a dense mouthfeel. Green tobacco, raw sourdough, and peppercorn middle. Long smoked berry finish that goes on forever with savory phenolic notes that come and go. This is fun, engaging, and memorable. This may not be most people's cup of tea, but this is totally my jam.

n: honeysuckle flower, sweet chai, toasted coconut, old paper in a dusty woodshop. Vanilla bourbon in a tin cup.

 

t: tasty controlled sweetness, angel food cake dough, toasted + dried coconut, with a bit of a bite to it still to make it interesting. The cohesive finish mellows out to a dry oak, hint of key lime pie, and powdered sugar on oatmeal.

 

Great nose and enjoyable to drink!   [B+/A-]
