Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 2009

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.61 points

  1. Dirk scored this whisky 88 points Super Administrator

    Quite suprissed by this to be honest. Thick mouthfeel, not to much alcohol punch and a good balance between waxy, oranges and honey notes. Yes there is quite some obvious vanilla notes here...

    They selected a very good cask for the first hand filled at Clynelish. I notice I am reaching for my glass all the time, very drinkable. Dangerous stuff!

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    With water, I find this in the 86 point range, without it's closer to 80.
    • Nose
      Lots of vanilla (LOTS), but also zesty lemon and winegums, with a touch of honey and burlap. Pretty lively, with a soft spiciness. Water brings out more of a classic beeswax-y profile, with green apples and stone fruits.
    • Taste
      Creamy stuff with a fairly spicy arrival (cloves and chili pepper), followed by a fair amount of vanilla, and a touch of resin. Water brings out an interesting hoppiness, a whiff of lemon and chalkiness as well.
    • Finish
      Lingering spices, lemon. Medium in length.
