Falnor
Expert Senior Falnor Tasting note
10 May 2018 12:17 pm
Falnor gave this whisky 86 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Nice layers of sweet honey, some fruits like apricot.

Taste

Creamy full bodied dram, cake, citrus fruit

Finish

Lingering on in vanilla, honey and a little ginger

Comments

A nice dram, all good, like you expect from an aged Clynelish. However nothing special or outstanding notes.

Tasted it at the 2nd Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam, November 2017.

Solid Clynelish, nice citrus and a small waxy bite,

Expert Senior sagara-kun Tasting note

sagara-kun gave this whisky 88 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Très fruité. Sirop d'abricot, jus de poire sucré

Très gourmand et intégré.

Amande très légère.

Taste

En bouche le fruité est toujours très present.

Gourmand , enrobé de cire.

On a un profil Clynelish classique mais en plus vieux, sage et cadré. C'est très plaisant.

Finish

Finale un poil astreingante sur le bois vert. Écorce d'ananas.

Cire et citronnée. Thym

Comments

La finale est moins à mon goût mais le profil général est super sympa.

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?
karloff
Specialist karloff Tasting note
16 Feb 2018 12:10 am
karloff gave this whisky 84 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

The sweet smell of honey, corn flake cereal, porridge oats, pineapple maybe and soda.

Taste

Canned fruit, nougat, quite creamy texture to it, very smooth as it is. This is straight down the line malt. You could almost say it is sitting on the fence.

Finish

A medium finish with white grape on the death.

Comments

A nice solid malt but nothing to shout about.

Whisky,no doubt, is a Devil; but why has this Devil so many worshippers?

dram-drinker gave this whisky 89 points
Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Green fruits, bees wax, camphor, eucalyptus, little citric too

Taste

Oily, creamy, fried sugar bananas, hints of vanilla, also a little peach, cream, good sweetness

Finish

Long and burning, mild exotic fruits

Comments

Very pleasant, but still pretty punchy - probably a bit water helps

Dram Dracula
Expert Senior Dram Dracula Note

Dram Dracula gave this whisky 88 points

Typical Clynelish waxiness. A bit of spice. Vanilla. Coconuts. Balanced. Good, but a bit boring.
