    [Opening the bottle]

    On the nose, it is directly maritime and fresh, with very slight notes of fruit, especially lemon.

    In the mouth, despite its 43%, alcohol is present, the dilution is rather well done.
    Marin, mineral, with a fruity that is more present after about ten minutes in the glass, without forgetting the typical "waxy" side has Clynelish

    Average finish on wax and fresh fruit (watermelon?)

    In short, a good Daily Dram rather nice.

    color : pale gold
    • Nose
      from the first whiff i immediately get lemon followed by beeswax , white fruit especially white grapes and pear , melon,oak and a slight grassy note

      a rather young smelling whisky
    • Taste
      very light flavour spicy , white grapes and pear , again lemon and oak

      i'm also picking up a slight chemical touch
    • Finish
      a small hint of wax on the finish

      short to medium white fruit and oak finish

  4. Sinbad50 scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Nose - floral and fruity. Palata some soft fruits, lightly spicy. Finish - short, disappears quickly. Not your typical Clynelish. The trademark waxiness is not there. It is not a well integrated whisky.

  5. sagara-kun scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Nice as a starter. No big defect but without great quality either.
    • Nose
      Wax, yellow fruit, apricot, peach, oaky, light prune.
      Alcohol poorly integrated, for 43% is a little burns mouth.
    • Taste
      On the palate it is quite spicy, and on the yellow fruits. Gourmand. Cinnamon. Light wax.
    • Finish
      Final on spices, wood (bourbon) and quince.
