Yes I'd like to know too... very tempted to by one. Seems like good value.

Today the postman delivered the bottle I ordered from WE. I don't want to open it now but I can pass you Douglas Laings's tasting notes.

It says:

Initially light and floral upon nosing, this Clynelish warms to reveal notes of crème brulée and clotted cream. The mid-weighted, oily body leads to a rich and fruity palate, marmalade and apricot preserve before unmalted barley and brininess. The finish is crisp, clean and complex.

Hope this helps.

Thanks! I've made up my mind, and ordered a bottle too (WE)!
Cheers!

I did taste it, and it is a great, great, great whisky...
It came out on top, here in Belgium, in a big Douglas Laing tasting... I don't think there was one person in the audience who did not like it!
It's a very high quality "passe-partout"... one of the best bottlings they did this year (along with the Port Ellen Platinum collection)
So, Good decision!
