Just about the right balance of everything. I just wish I could get ahold of a different expression as it's the only one sold around here. You can taste a little Brora in there, just not as mature and complex. Well worth the asking price ($40US). The only thing I've found quite like it is the Ardmore Signatory 1992 bottling which might even be slightly better.
I found the Ardmore to show more bourbon cask on the palate than the Clynelish 14. I have enjoyed both and the Clynelish is the smoother of these to smoothies and yet it would be hard to choose one over the other.

i dont think it is really comparable to any others. however for an all around whisky i think it is absolutely one of the best. the sooner you get a bottle the better!! and see if you can taste a bit of mustard in it.
I tried to find a difference in taste from the old Flora & Fauna bottling but couldn't really decide if there was one. Has anyone else made a comparison glass to glass??
This is a very nice whisky. Maritime, malty, lots of sweet fruit, nice explosion of spice, bit of tobacco and gets very dry on the finish. Not sure I can pick any mustard, however I will continue to look for it.
