Thin candle (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

taper

'thin candle' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for taper that I've seen before include "Gradually become thinner" , "Spill - become narrower towards one end" , "Convex shape that narrows toward a point" , "Tail off; a spill" , "Fall off" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard, The Mirror and The Star Tribune.
