  1. OJK scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    On the nose at first there’s sweet rubber and salts, then incredible orchard fruit syrup, sweet herbs, and some subtle earthy smoke. So viscous on the palate, one of those whiskies where the palate manages to exceed the expectations of the (already great) nose. Concentrated apple syrup, salt and pepper caramel, a hint of coastal smoke, and a huge finish that keeps evolving for an age.

    Nos - Wax, cellar dust, citrus, vanilla and slightly herbal.
    Taste - Vanilla, wax, slightly nutty, lemon zest, a little tannin, white fruit in the background.
    Finish - on-going, spices, honey, wax, and dust again, at the end there is a vanilla with a white piper.

    Beautiful Clynelish! A bit less amazing as the 26yo Hidden Spirits Clynelish (less round and more 'alcoholic'), but not much behind. Wonderful notes of pineapple, rosemary and wax.

    Nose: Varnish, candy, very cool sweetness
    Taste: The taste is very complex. Beautiful multi-layered sweetness. Apricots, dried fruit, honey. Chocolate is quite creamy. This is really good!
    Rating: 92 | 100 medium long finish with a profile of pleasant sweetness. Very good Clynelish.

  9. topos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    sample from GB. very quick note for now, one to come back to. an easy 8/10, amazingly recalls to mind a bit the clynelish 12 giaccone.
    • Nose
      time and a little water. very fresh. salted honeydew, one gummy bear, creamy, lightly oak-herbal, paraffin. lovely.
    • Taste
      again it's fresh and clean up front, long development at first light fruitness (honeydew, dried pineapple), dunnage warehouse, then it moves mineral (limestone) and lemony, "aged lemons" that is, balancing nobility and freshness. subtle east coast peat builds throughout, almost a little farmy, hessian, superb oily mouthfeel.
