Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 2010 ElD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.69 points

  1. greg_0277 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The nose is typical of clynelish: orchard fruits, wax predominate.
    On the palate, the attack is lively, it's fresh, fruity and of course very waxy.
    The finish betrays his youth a little. Rather short, a bit of vegetable bitterness but which remains under control. I think the reduction to 50% is well chosen. The less it would undoubtedly have been a little bland and the higher, this final would have been aggressive.

    It’s not that sticky and lingering as I would have expected (because it’s Clynelish), but the nose really did it for me! I think that sweet candy peaches with the combination of that candy wax... It’s just yummy...

      Boom: that delicous Clynelish wax note comes up immediately. It’s a sweet candy wax, not a chemical candle wax. Followed by a sweet candy note of Haribo peaches and fruitiness of ripe pear. Notes of Honeycomb, vanilla and malty.

      Honey, Citrus, again the ripe pears, peaches. Malty and the wax note turned into bee-wax. Also there’s a salty note which is not often that prominent in a Clynelish as in this bottling.
    • Finish

      A bit warm. More of that waxy notes, honey and at the end the salty notes is taking the overhand.
