  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Clynelish and sherry isn't always the best of combinations, except for the few rare occasions when there's a balance between spirit and cask. That is absolutely the case here.
    • Nose
      Thick notes of beeswax with a whiff of ozone and soft fruits in the background. Some orange peel, definitively a bit of strawberry too, and a touch of galia melon as well. The sherry influence is subtle, leaving room for that classic Clynelish profile to shine. Not the most complex, but very balanced.
    • Taste
      Lovely earthy, sherried and waxy dram. There's a good amount of farminess here too, and even the lightest of touches of charcoal and smoke. A whiff of menthol, some leather and tobacco leaves, with a touch of maraschino cherries, but also a chalkiness and minerality that is classic Clynelish.
    • Finish
      Soft spices, and more of the same.
