Colour: white wine. Nose: I think they made it (even) waxier in the early 2000s, as this reeks of beeswax, paraffin – rather candles - and cut apples. Touches of cherries, then a little iodine and sea air. Mouth: a little rough, perhaps, and rather grassier and grittier than others, but the expected combo is there, with wax again, a little salt (rather really salty for Clynelish), lemon peel, and a little beer. Finish: long, between candlewax, lemon and bitter apples, with a salty aftertaste.
