I didn't get the waxy notes I normally associate with Clynelish but there were darker dragonwell tea like notes alongside dried citrus fruit (preserved lemon peel). Not much going on with the nose. Good texture with a kick of citrus and cherry licorice. Ahh, there's the wax. The dark tea emerges in the mid palate but it comes with some chalky mineral notes that I don't care for. Light peat comes out during the finish which makes me think of Brora.  Alas it is not.
