  1. Whisky-Ex scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Tasting notes from a tasting with 30 participants (average of the ratings approx. 89 p.):
    less bitter
    I find it quite mild and slightly liquorice
    it smells fruity and softer than the first
    Nose. Almond-like, vanilla-like, reminiscent of wine gum
    You can taste the malt very clearly combined with a persistent sweetness
    Wine gum
    Clynelish tastes very good !!
    other league super creamy, marzipan
    very fine taste, warming, just as I like it!
    Sweet and easy
    it goes wonderfully with chocolate !!
    that's a 90 points !!!!
    loses for me with water I find the copper from the stills bitter
    I also give 90 points,
    87 points
    wouldn't dilute it, just added 1 drop, slightly metallic appeal, I'll stick with pure
    so i say 88 points
    89 points

    Sweet fruits, ripe pears, sherry, honey, apricot, vanilla and citrus in the background
    Sweet ripe pears, herbes, pepper, vanilla, malt, oak and a bitter almond
    Pretty long finish, sweet malty, honey, dry oak, nutty and Peppery.
    Judging by my surprise, tasted better than I could expect.

    honey-waxy aroma, very calm, it could have been a little more vigorous) Sweet, pleasantly, there is probably a taste with dignity, the degree was left correct. But in general, something is missing from the malt, maybe depth, with what to connect it? Not enough exposure? Still, I don’t know US ... But I didn’t hook it ..

    An excellent NAS release with a well-known Clynelish-like profile, but a little overpriced - one point less.
