Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 2008 WSP

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. aspa scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    nose
    Vanilla dominates the first smell, along with typical green apples and citrus fruits, still coated with vanilla and a little sugar. Slightly malty, and some honey, just a little wax.
    Soft and without pungent alcohol, I would estimate older than 11 years based on nose.

    taste
    In the mouth a little more alcohol, a little more strength, now more appropriate to the age. The fruits, green apples, citrus fruits, some grass and some oak dominate. Vanilla and light wax that covers everything. But I don't find any typical Dr Clynelish notes that are mineral or nothing salty or oily. So half a clynelish ;-)

    Exit
    Continue with great apples, citrus fruits and everything covered in light wax. The finish stays there for a long time and is really tasty with a bit of bitter oak.

    Conclusion
    A beautiful Clynelish with typical aromas, which shows the young age in the mouth but is a delicious drinking malt.
