Diageo Special Release 2014
Nose: pretty great. Unsurprisingly you get a mixture of all thingsthat Clynelish is famous for. Big fruity notes: mirabelles, grapefruit, lemon and lime. Tiny hints of tropical fruits like passion fruits - as if it had Irish ancestors, if you know what I mean. Haribo sweets and marshmallow in the background. Strong beehive notes and paraffin. Ginger lemonade with mint leaves. Fairly mundane grainy notes as well, All which Seem to grow stronger over time. Mouth: high strength, very creamy and rounded. Lemon, grapefruit, peach, pear. Zesty and zingy with a salty edge. Quite compact, the nice tropical notes are gone. The waxy notes return with a bit of water, and this brings chlorophyll usefull and a wider array of fruits. Shows typical peppery / mustardy notes towards the end. Finish: long, with lemon, ginger and hints of green tea, very much in line with the taste.
