    Highgarden

    I cannot remember ever having tasted a disappointing Clynelish (and this is my 72nd so far), so I was very much looking forward to this one. And at 51.2% to boot. Rumor has it there are less bottles of this around, making it very much sought after (and thus more expensive on the secondary market). Whatever. I am just happy I ordered a full set from the get-go, so I did not have to deal with that. Let’ go!

    Sturdy and very mineral nose on quinine, lime and orange juice, young apples, mango, paraffin, nuts, unripe banana and rocks in the riverbed. Floral note and even some… errr… washing-up soap? Not too worry! It works! This is a wonderful nose (although honesty forces me to say I’ve nosed better).

    Good body and immediately very spicy. Peppers galore. But quite quaffable without water. Quinine and a candy-like sweetness come first – somewhat surprising – before honey and raisins rear their heads. Chalk, ginger and vanilla, Seville oranges, candle wax, he has it all. But it has to be said… there is a soapy edge to it.

    The finish is long on honey, beeswax, vanilla and pepper, but with an overly floral note.

    Fine Clynelish, but it flirts with perfume. Must be from Olenna Tyrell, the Queen of Thorns.

    I'm still relatively unprepared at Clynelish. Only had the 14er so far. A good standard. But this distillery seems to be working in my direction. The PLV is completely in the green area. He doesn't have to hide in the ranking for the places in the GoT series. Solid malt.
    • Nose
      First thought: The Capri ice cream from Langnese. In addition, a summery, fruity note. The teasing alcohol gets some water from me. Very good, because now the vanilla is supported by flowers. A fresh, inviting nose. Respect. Hopefully he'll hold out.
    • Taste
      A bit bitter texture to begin with, but round and full. Nothing annoying. The wood tingles in the foreground and sweet lemon vegetables cloud the notes. Everything stays sweet and is well balanced. Enjoyable. Creamy honey citrus vanilla. The transition has a slightly bitter and somewhat astringent effect again. But perfectly ok. He delivers what the nose promised. High standard. Memorable.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. The slightly bitter woody transition becomes pleasantly delicate peppery and still sweet it leaves the stage. Already on the palate and on the nose there was always a delicate smoke note. But now I know it's just the weakened form of pipe tobacco. A suppressed plume of smoke ... nothing more. Nice that he persevered and that I was able to test it. Occasional malt!
      A big thank you to Andre for the great rehearsal.

    RATING: 85pts – |83 – 86 (B) → Good| — Not a “must”, but a nice-to-have.
    • Nose
      85 85
      The nose is plain, pretty young and waxy with notes of paraffin, minerals, unripe tropical fruits and honey.
    • Taste
      86 86
      The taste is intense and peppery with notes of tropical fruits, honey cake, orange peel and salty caramel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      The finish is quite long, slightly salty and peppery with hints of honey, vanilla, some bitter perfume and citruses.

  6. Arquebus scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Two Clynelish opened and tried side by side: G-o-T and the standard 14yr old (20cl.) 51.2% vs 46%. £35 for the G-o-T and £44 (equivalent.) for the 14.
    Initial nosing: the 14 has the edge - softer, richer, smokier and more expressive. G-o-T is shyer - thinner, sharper more hidden behind a damp wood note. It’s as if the extra 5% is just that - which dilutes the Malt flavours. ... Both have expressive noses which demand careful nosing, but the 14 is a touch more defined and articulate. 14 yr old yields Light esters, mirabelle plums, some pear, bands of distinct sweet smoke, touches of sherry, perhaps coconut and then heavier syrups.
    The G-o-T plays hide and seek with a damp wood / cardboardy overcoat. Light esters, more pear, spirity eau-de-cologne mint, narrower bands of delicate sweet smoke that take longer to emerge, blasts of icing sugar, touch of sherry and spices. Just when it seems to have gone flat it drops its overcoat and out pop the fruits and flashes of smoke again
    Taste: both initially sweet, then more on bitter herbal notes carrying the nose onto the pallet and on to the finish which is medium but lingering.
    Both whiskies clearly from the same stables and to be honest there’s not a huge difference. The G-o-T Is just more muted and diluted despite its higher abv. Both suffer from chill-filtration - but they represent great value - it’s a shame there isn’t more naturally presented Clynelish in this price range!
    85 for the G-o-T ( 87pts for the 14yr old).

    —- blind tasting —-

    I like it. Looks older than he is probably.
    • Nose
      The alcohol first stings. Sweet ripe yellow fruits - somehow indefinable. Spicy, maybe a little waxy.
    • Taste
      Oily, strong onset, then becoming very sweet, honey, some fruit, grapes, spicy, dusty wood, coffee with milk.
    • Finish
      Quite long, creamy, sweet and subtly bitter. Then fruit again - raspberries?

  8. Robinzon25 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Cool Klineelish! Perhaps, while the best release in the Game of Thrones series from those that I tried. I recommend!
    • Nose
      Dried cherries, prunes, hazelnuts.
    • Taste
      Cherry jam, apple seeds, nuts, tannins.
    • Finish
      Medium duration - cherry jam, spices, nuts, varnished notes. At the end, delicate tones of oak.
      With the addition of water, sherry shades sank in the aroma, notes of malt and cream appeared. The taste is enhanced by the influence of spices. The finish has become more sherry and, oddly enough, a little sharp.

    Young gas and plenty of wood in station wagon.
    Right sprittig, even water does not make him properly balanced, the Alk remains too dominant. Not the big hit.

    Far too young and immature to inspire.
    Water brings little.
    • Nose
      81 81
      Rather flat in the nose and a bit restrained. The alk is a bit noticeable. Fine floral note and a little mineral undertones.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Starts very sweet and full with clear mirabelle-schnapps notes, very quickly clearly alcoholic and caramel.
    • Finish
      82 82
      Also here: Mirabelle schnapps. Ends caramelly sweet.

  11. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Sweet, yellow-fruity and waxy, with citrus notes and something floral. The alcohol is well integrated and provides intensity.
    Length: 5/10

    Not really bad, but it also seems a bit interchangeable.

    Grade: 2

  12. Palindrome scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    Tasted this at a friend's house. The waxy note is nice but the detergent thing is offputting. This is a flawed dram that had potential. I'm thinking it was probably only one bad cask that snuck in. Without the soapy note, it would have been quite nice despite its young age. I would take a youngish vintagey waxy Clynelish any day over an old sweet one that has been tarted up with gushy winey sweet wood. Why? Because the wax note is gone, so far as I can tell. The distillery can't seem to get it back. I'm thinking maybe it was from some sort of growth in the warehouse that was cleaned, like what sometimes happens in France with cognac. The black angels wings or whatever they call it. Anyway, that waxy fun note seems missing these days but this Tyrell does have it. And yes I do think the writers of GOT ripped off Philip K Dick for the name Tryrell from his novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, or was Tyrell only in the movie? I can't remember. My pulp reading days are over and the movie is plodding now. Plus I don't much care for Scott. His film making seems to reveal a bit too much of his private sadistic sociopathic side for my liking. He was better with a more limited budget and an audience that was less jaded and more educated which kept up his bar a bit higher, and yes perhaps investors that were the parents of whoever is forking over his budgetary dough these days. Anyway, this scotch is hard to find now. My friend stocked up during the boom month when it was going for like 20 bux a bottle. That's the equivalent of the three buck chuck certainly, but in the scotch world instead of the wine world. For 20 bux, I would have bought a case but I was in the wrong state for that. Opportunity lost. Personally, I think this scotch would vat up very nicely in a homemade pure malt vatting that could be put into a nice decanter for company . . . for folks that aren't all that much into whisky, but know you are and so want to raid your collection more out of passive curiosity than active interest or appreciation and might, gawd forbid, put ice into their glasses while staring you in the eye comically as though to say "I know this pains you a little and all the better because you are obsessed with scotch and I'm a bit jealous of your passion because I really don't have the patience to be passionate about much and I just hire people who are, so that makes me better than you as I drink your fancy scotch on ice because after all ice is nice when whisky is frisky (over 43 percent ABV)." Now, let's think . . . what would I vat with this Tyrell? Another better older Clynelish, of course. But not too much. Maybe ten percent. Just enough to bring out the wax and hide the soap. A dash of my The Exclusive Malts 1997 Clynelish 15 Year Old would do quite nicely, for example. And I really do quite like that year. 97 was dabomb for Clynies. Not sure why.

  13. LDB scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    A whimsy, flimsy Clynelish that does have a nice nose but is far too young, having been ripped from the barrel to satisfy the masses - marketing aside.

  14. Eigerle scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    After I already had a few GoT whiskys in the glass, this is certainly part of the "high standard" and clearly comes off better than some of the series. Rate of water addition. Actually a 14 clynelish with an additional thump. An honest dram with no rough edges.

    absolutely recommendable.. not sure what people don't like with this Clynelish, for me this is probably "just" the standard 14 year old in higher strength... certainly benefits from higher strength, lovely balanced, nice finish... what´s not to like for 45EUR? i have had much much worse for more money

    Nice nose, nice finish, but the mouthfeel is a bit too straight forward.

    A lovely, fruity Clynelish. Bright orchard and tropical fruits with notes of pears, apples, mango and pineapple. Honey, ginger, oranges, burnt wood and tobacco also make their presence felt. Can take a fair bit of water though it doesn't necessarily need it. A lovely oily texture too. Very impressive.

  24. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Even though it's NAS, it doesn't seem ostentatiously young.
    The trademark waxiness is hard to coax out, though (lots of air and a bit of water are beneficial).
    Distillate-led; not one for wood fetishists. Super boring initially; gets more characterful after some air has gone into the bottle.
    A competent and tasty, but also somewhat unexciting Clynelish. An unapologetic drinking whisky.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Floral and fruity foremost, then mineralic (especially once the filling level has gone down beyond the halway point), with freshly starched linen, gravel, chalk, wet pebbles, and a very distant whiff of peat. Simple and clean and pretty nice.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Almost like a hypercharged version of the 14-year-old, albeit with less sherry influence. Chalky, waxy, with tart Italian lemon soda and corn syrup sweetness. Very good, actually, if not overly complex.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Banana bread, orange juice, with a quinine-like bitter / chalky edge. Not a lot of wood besides a familiar drying impression.

    The generous ABV coupled with this whisky's youthfulness makes for a rather spicy and peppery whisky. Has a rather juicy orange note. Oily and full bodied. Quite different than the 14 but, overall, not bad. I liked it.

    The only fast-paced GOT whisky and he can handle it, a very typical Clynelish, very tasty!
    • Nose
      creamy, waxy, light honey sweetness, floral notes, has really something like you smell of a candle, alcohol well integrated, vanilla, a breeze of pepper, a touch of marzipan or almonds rather, lovage comes to light over time, some cold cocoa
    • Taste
      creamy, sweet, floral, a bit grassy, vanilla, yellow fruit, honey, here too the cocoa in the background, the waxy base note is also there, very good drinking strength, need no water
    • Finish

    Best of the GOT series. Price/quality is absurd

    A decent modern example of Clynelish. Floral and perfume-y on the nose, with apples, and lemon. There is a bit of minerality and grassiness to the nose as well.

    On the palate, it is immediately spicy, probably due to the youth and also the bottling strength. Good amount of waxiness, along with apples, honey, and vanilla.

    The finish is medium, with lingering pepper spice and warmth.

    Overall, a fine expression of Clynelish, with the youth backed up by a higher bottling strength. If this was bottled below 50% ABV, it would be generic.

    Smell: Light fruits, apples and pears, then orange peel, appears fresh and mineral, beeswax comes to the fore and fresh wood.
    Taste: Slightly sweet start, forest honey, beeswax, then lime and some orange. The whisky becomes spicier, pepper and ginger spread in the mouth.
    Finish: Medium length, slightly dry, somewhat bitter and spicy wood.
    Conclusion: Beautiful drinking whisky with character.

    Typical Clynelish waxiness and a few more nice aromas on the nose. Unspectacular on the palate.

    A NAS with high abv and a creamy fruity character, which makes it a bit more complex and interesting than the average GOT releases.

    The alcohol kick is quite prominent at first sip, but even without adding water it slowly reveals a slightly oily consistence, opening up in a wide mix of mineral, maritime and oaky notes. Apple pie, candied peaches, vanilla, lots of crispy maltiness and a distant veil of smoke soon display a rich variety of aromas, not overwhelmed by the abv and slowly fading into a pleasantly spicy, warming finish. Its quite short length reveals the young age, though not spoiling the overall good feeling of this malt, well-crafted and with good personality.

    I definitely prefer the regular 14 year old distillery expression in terms of taste and also 46% suits better that dram than 50%.

    - a surprisingly good representative of the GoT series
    - the 2nd best representative of the GoT series (the best is the

    Compared to the others, the perceived winner
    - for 55 € and with the increased filling strength fully ok
    • Nose
      very sweet and fruity, yellow fruits, peach, intense, directly present on the nose
    • Taste
      sweetish fruity start, full-bodied, intense, buttery, caramel, fudge, oak, sparkling, pleasant to drink even without water

    Pretty full and deep. There is a certain oilyness. Nice hidden power. Wax and a lot of ripe fruit. Character typical of a Clynelish, although perhaps more fruit than usual. There is a certain complexity.
