Aroma: beeswax with honey, some resin, fresh grass. Hints of fruit and pepper. Water brings more wood and fruit.
Palate: honey and wax, salty. Ripe melons, banana peel and pepper. Liquorice. Water brings aniseed drops.
Finish: pleasant, quiet long. Peanuts, some fruit and wax.
Comments: I wasn't pleased by their 14yo OB, but this one I like a lot. Interesting, expressive, with Clynelish style.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
