Tasting Notes
Johannes van den HeuvelNose: Sweet & sour; fresh and expressive. First fruits, then farmy notes emerge. Weird development. I liked it for the first minute but then it took a turn for the worse... Somber vegetal notes take over. Taste: Heavy. Sweet coffee - almost mocca. Better than average but all-in-all a little bit one-sided. I scored it 77 points - but then again I?m not a big fan of the modern lightly peated Clynelishes.
