      Medium in duration, but warms the soul, but flat for both taste and nose
      Holds wine tones well.

    Young, yet smooth. It's fruity but not too sweet. Mainly white fruits, stone fruits but also some citrus sherbet notes altough not really sour. So incredibly easy to drink; simple and delicate. As far as I know the Clynelish distilled in this period is not particular waxy but it definitely has this typical profile.

  11. Stifu_3000 scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Nose: white grapes, ripe bananas, oak, light smoke.
    Taste: peach, oak, caramel, mulberry, mango
    Finish: caramel, vanilla, mirabelle

    A very drinkable, fruity dram with a medium to long finish.

  17. Simon Stood scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Very interesting clynelish. Young but tasty and recognizable profile. I wonder why they got it out of the barrel at that age? Feels like it should have gotten better over time. Balance 22. Total 87-88. Very worthy at this age!
    • Nose
      87 87
      At first, a little spiritually. Over time, the alcohol goes away. Bourbon barrel aroma (possibly refillable). Malt's youth is clearly not sticking out, but you can't call it age either. Ripe pear (duchess), fresh, slightly sour. Not bad. 21.5-22
    • Taste
      88 88
      The palate is denser than aromatherapy, but it is oily. Herbaceous, with a bit of sweetness, recognizable for the clynelish profile. Tight, but drinkable. Interesting. 22
    • Finish
      87 87
      The aftertaste is long enough. Mint, dry hay, white and green peppers, some wormwood at the end. Okay. 21.5

  18. vlad78 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Full of fresh and ripe fruit, as well as berry pie.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Berries, red, dark, yellow cherries. Berry pie. It seems that the association with the pie is connected with the presence of some kind of buttercream and a rich sweet cake.
    • Taste
      87 87
      The taste is sweet, quite light, rounded, soft, and dessert-like.
    • Finish
      86 86
      soft, sweet, full of berries.

  20. thijs100 scored this whisky 81 points Connoisseur

    It's the intense arrival that brings the score down.
    • Nose
      Vanilla galore and quite candy-esque at first. Tinned peaches, pickled lemons and pineapple juice with a touch of quince. A whisper of frosting as well as a bit of sawdust, with finally a slight floral note, chalk and citronella.
    • Taste
      A raw, oaky and herbal arrival that's just a little too much. It makes way for some classic creamy, waxy notes as well as honey. Soft notes of stone fruits and vanilla pods.
    • Finish
      A lingering waxiness with touches of green banana and pebbles.

  21. whiskynor scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Citric with lots of honey and vanilla. Almost buttery mouth feel

    For the price it has, it really stands straight and reflects the profile of the distillery. A young son of Androcchia. Greetings to all.

    Great whisky, didn't expect! 88!

  30. olegborgol scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    21.5-21.5-22-22, young green, reduced ..

  31. Corle0ne scored this whisky 77 points Newbie

    Quite the bipolar malt. While you certainly notice that there's a quality product in the background, the raw and somewhat unforgiving tannins wreaks havoc on your taste buds. I keep going back and forth if I like it or not. Highly unpleasant superdry mouthfeel in the aftertaste.

    Pear drops, pear candy and tannin-rich pine rocks this whisky. Maybe some Haribo candy too. You can smell and taste some of the Clynelish style in the background, but it's not very prominent. Credit to the bottler for getting this much out of such a young one. Still not good enough for the price.

    ????: white wine,
    ????: tan-lacquer, young distillate, although light, without power, average impression,
    ????: sweet, a bit alcoholic, light, a little oily short
    ????: warming, sweet, moderate

    There is nothing special here, nothing particularly bothering you, but also the impressions practically none. Only finish more than OK.

    A blend of 5 casks from 2 8 year olds from 2010 & 3 9 year old from 2011.

    Very easy drinker.

  36. gossm01 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    It is slightly oily and its bouquet is of moderate intensity. I have aromas of vanilla, malty sweetness, citrus and creme brullee. Moderately complex. Slightly sweet taste with soft alcohol and a relatively light body.

  40. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    have to agree with the reviews so far. for me this is pretty much perfect juice as an "everyday" but also as a treat. As much as I like playing with water, I do like the 48% ABV presentation, perfect strength to sip without a second thought.

    I'll keep buying these 2010 ElD stocks for the forseeable future.
    • Nose
      light fresh fruit salad, salted wax, lime (fruit and stone), ozone
    • Taste
      great mouthfeel and mineral structure, lime/stone, suggestions of fuzzy peach and pear, salted grapefruit and a little wax.

  42. Demasy scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    This is very well made and as I experienced with many whiskies, it needs some time to breath.
    It's got this fantastic mineral quality, for which I imagen a crystal clear stream pouring over some cobble stones but then with an oily quality.. Well, u know what I mean, or u don't.
    I can find some unripe banana in there (well Serge did, and I now find it to :)) some austere chalkiness.
    The most elemental part for me of this dram, the smooth (yes yes) experience which makes it a nice daily drinker as you can pour it down with out giving it much thought. It supports your evening while you enjoy the company of others (or the TV for that matter). There's nothing really standing out in this dram and still, you will gulp down the bottom so u can fill your glass once more, not willing to go to sleep yet..

  44. Palindrome scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I bought a case of this one. It's my daily drinker these days. It's not complex but I just really like it for some reason. I've also got an old Brora open. I would take this one over the Brora any time. It's just nicer, although when a Brora is good then its REALLY good. Not so with the bottle I have open right now. Sometimes the eager serf is better to hang out with than the unhappily landed gentry.

  45. Whiskylifestyle scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Oh this is lovely. Peaches, tinned apricots and oranges. Some vanilla. A hint of carbon. Green bananas. Icing sugar combined with lemon juice. Limestone. Unripe pears too.
    • Taste
      It’s less sweet than the nose suggests. A nice thick mouthfeel. Peaches again at first, which is followed by a waxy note. Minerals. Vanilla. A hint of cookie dough and caramel. Later also grapefruit and a hint of oranges.
    • Finish
      a long finish with mostly minerals and grapefruit. White pepper.

  46. bartekfm scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The only thing it lacks is intensivity. Would rock at cask strength. Nonetheless, perfectly tasty and elegant whisky.
