4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.13 points

  1. jjkmlss scored this whisky 81 points Expert Junior

    Nose: Mineral, pineapple, lime, flowers

    Palate: white flowers, cracker, sourdough, honey, oak

    Body: medium, little wax

    Finish: Extremely short, sugar and popcorn

    Another trash-like no-oak no-distillate Clynelish, but as long as Monseur You-know-who gives a 91, you idiots will pay for it anyway.

    Nose: lovely Clyenlish-ian notes: it’s waxy, and chalky and quite mineral, a bit of sweet fruity green apple peel, as well as a very faint tropical note. Baked green apple with little vanilla sugar, and few drops of citrus to balance all that. Not a lot of wood notes given the long 26 years of maturation. if you give it more time in the glass it’s getting a bit saline-y with olive brine…

    Palate: The palate is a direct continuation of the nose with the briny, lemony and a bit chalky notes on the first wave of sensations, there’s the wood – it’s bigger than on the nose, and I like that (I like quite some wood in my older whiskies , and that’s no secret), some cocoa bitterness, and maybe a hint of turmeric as well, pepper and chilly heat too.

    Finish: more spices, pepper, linseed oil, bitter wood.

    Conclusion: Quite a typical Clynelish, and a very good one at that , although I might say I’ve had better Clynelishes.

    • Nose
      91 91
      The sour-sweetness of the very sweet little orange is mixed with wax, lemon peel oil, or grapefruit peel oil, brand new leather. After the cup wakes up it looks more like a waxy apple. 91
    • Taste
      89 89
      The wine is not thick but full of flavor, with apple sweet as the main note, extremely sour concentrated lemon juice mixed with orange juice sweetness. Bring black pepper and chop green pepper, then chew the nuts + grapefruit peel. 89
    • Finish
      89 89
      Mint, Kizhilang orange jelly aftertaste, grapefruit veins are bitter, light woody feel. 89
