  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    A decent and smooth Clynelish, nothing more, nothing less.
    • Nose
      Malty and yeasty. Biscuits. Some wet grass. Cardboardy. Hints of smoke as well.
    • Taste
      Fruity sweetness of pear and melon. Whiney. Slightly spiced of pepper and nutmeg. Gingery and mustard.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Quite dry. Liquorice. Becomes salty at the end.

  10. hsmithjr scored this whisky 78 points Connoisseur

    I wish it had more back bone, but it's a solid Clynelish.
    • Nose
      Fruity and herbal.  Citrus.....lemon chiffon.  Fresh cut hay.  SOme seaside notes.
    • Taste
      Smooth and silky.  Seaweed and brine.  Some really soft fruits.
    • Finish
      Rather short, ending way too soon.  Some salt.

      Floral and fruity
    • Taste
      Fruity and a bit salty
    • Finish
      Short and thats it

  12. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Good nose, so fruity. But the taste and finish lacks flavors..
    • Nose
      Oh, its fresh alright, lemon, orange and apple. And in the end I can smell some seaweed... good nose!
    • Taste
      First of all, the taste is exactly as the shores of the west coast of sweden smells like, I promise.. It's smooth and its seaweed and a nice sea breeze.... But it's too few flavors, and not as powerful as I want it to be...
    • Finish
      Short, way too short.... but it's so coastal, seaweed and a nice sea breeze...
