Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 2008 Km

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.67 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Far from bad, this Clynelish does a lot of things right - it just doesn't have a huge range of flavors and isn't as oily as others.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Some beeswax, peppermint pastilles, some pineapple-banana-apple puree. Overall, a vanilla-grainy undertone.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Very smooth for 54%, but fruit acid like peach nectar with a pinch of ginger, but everything stays on the fruity harmonious side.
    • Finish
      86 86
      A bit of white pepper and astringent dryness give an idea of the oak. Ends with a note of apricot schnapps that I don't really like.

  2. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A blind sample.
    • Nose
      87 87
      A light acid rises from the glass and settles in the nose. Green wood, fresh grass cut. A little alcohol, but it quickly vanishes.
      Behind the green wood comes vanilla, a little toffee candy. Milk chocolate.
      Over time, the nose is getting better, which can breathe well for a few minutes.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Warm and oily, supple, velvety. Pear compote, fine spice. Honey. Alcohol very well integrated, not in the least biting.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium long, slightly dry, Cafe au Lait, some pearmint.
