Nose: Jaffa cakes and lime zest becomes lemon curd and peach.
Palate: Salted and viscous with grapefruit and fresh, ripe peaches.
Finish: Tingly stone fruit goodness.
Overall: Ticks all the right boxes, this is a tremendous Clynelish.

Received this as a sample, and apparently that's all that's still offered from the fine chaps at Master of Malt as the bottles have sold out.From a neat pour, I immediately found key lime pie, chocolate digestive, and peach. After it opened up I also got damp earth, orange zest and dark chocolate. As above, the palate is spot on - simply salt and peaches. The finish is quick, briefly tart, and a smidge hot, but nevertheless very smooth for 56.7% without water. After a while, the tartness turned to a more sweet orange and cream. Beautiful experience, overall! Glad I was able to taste it!
