Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 2010 SMWS 26.122
9 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.30 points
- Bottled too young, potential wasted imho.
- Especially in the nose, the 26,122 reminded me of an unpeated version of 93.72 (one of my favorite whiskys). In terms of sweetness, this Clynelish is also a serious competitor to the Glenmorangie Milsean.
Here is a great spirit on a very active bourbon barrel encountered, then the whole thing must not be old.
Super sweet, "Jelly Belly" Jelly Beans (the one with Green Apple flavor), a true candy shop, vanilla and linseed oil. With water comes a slightly grassy note.
Creamy and caramel. I hardly had any alcohol in my nose, now I need about 5 drops of water to drink 2 cL.
The water makes the dram more oily and less sweet (in relative terms, it is still very sweet). For a mineral / waxy touch comes through.
Sweet, sticky, long with a slightly bitter note, paraffin and grass.

- I wish normal apples was this good.
Frying apples in olive oil. It's fresh and fruity, and a little flowery? Some earth and candle-wax as well.
The same, but more earth and waxiness. Or rather; the texture really enhances these notes.
Delicious, long. It's oily apples and honey.
Ripe Williams pear, banana, wine gum
Very sweet and fruity at first - very ripe fruit, wine and wine gum, then spicy direction bouillon cubes and then waxy.
Long and spicy with a delicate candle wax note. Very exciting whisky!
- SMWS notes:
Fruit jellies jump out at first. Followed by pineapple flavoured jelly babies, icing sugar, juicy fruit bubblegum and pine resin. The expected waxiness hovers in the background. Sweetness abound to a surprising degree. Water drys things out a little and brings notes of earth, wildflowers, minerals and a bolder waxiness. The palate continues this theme of jellied sweetness. Lots of fruit syrups, tropical fruit juices, some seagreens and coastal vigour. Also wax jackets, gorse, rapeseed oil and touches of hummus. With reduction there is a more intense waxiness, joined by sot, iron filings, camphor and lemon oils. Quite fabulous!
