    Initital tasting was lower but after 2 months in opened bottle it revealed much more of it's true complexity. A wonderful little gem this one.

    The nose does not betray much about the taste.

    The taste is a true explosion with predominant taste elements.

    The finish is powerful and smoky and lasts longer.

    Tasty whisky!

    A nice whisky with summer flavors. Not much to complain about really.
    • Nose
      Very fresh and a little fruity nose. Oak and some flowery notes. 
    • Taste
      Very smooth. Fruity and lots of oak, nuts and bark. Vanilla.
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, not much flavors though.

  10. I_SPEY scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    This Clynelish DE 1991 has an amber color, a sweet
    and nutty/malty flavour and with a few drops of water becomes fruitier and vanilla and spice arrive.The taste is smooth and sweet, lightly peatyish and fruity and with three or four drops of water becomes even smoother, with more vanilla aroma, fruitier and more softer peat, gets then drier and nuttier.
