  3. DoctorRockter scored this whisky 93 points Expert Junior

    a really good one, a good clynelish with a fruity flavour and taste, wonderfoul nose with smells of white peach ,vanilla, melon , cidrus in the beginning.. With water :wooow smell lighter, less fruity and a bit marine, the taste is wonderfully oily, fat and waxy like a tipical clynelish, vanilla biscuit and waxy side in the final.. the first time you try it can appear like a normal whisky, but if you try it more times you will see that it's a really eleagant and gentle whisky , almost perfect and perfectly balanced like a champion

    Delicious, a smoothie with broccoli and exotic fruits. Waxglass on top.
    Strange and complex, bitter end like placebo

      nose made of minerals and honey.. sweetness enveloping the alcohol.. later come dry herbs over peach and apricot.. in time, it veers towards citrus, mostly grapefruit and orange rind, but still anchored in a solid, earthy tone.. slightly salty with a tinge of smoke and vanilla.. an old treasure chest full of surprises.
    • Taste
      90 90
      more fruity than sweet, with a lemony zing and not too much power.. mellow, but vibrant.. small notes of wax, smoke and salt.. the spirit envelops the mouth in a warm, vanillated embrace.
    • Finish
      88 88
      peppery-dry.. again citrus and a slight bitter note.. a sadness that it's all gone too soon!
