  1. Kalleholzbein scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Classic wax, great symbiosis of sweet fruits & beautiful spicy herbs. Vanilla, honey, subtle citrus fruits. Also fruity and spicy in the mouth. Very harmonious, alcohol very well integrated. Long, intense and pleasant finish.

    Great bourbon at a very high level. Connects seamlessly to siblings # 11218 and # 11215. Should someone tell me again, these days there is no longer any good whisky ???? The price of 330 € is of course not a bargain, but worth considering for this quality. Unfortunately, the bottling was sold out within a few hours, so the question no longer arises.

    The sister keg from the UK only cost £ 220, which I think is fair if the quality is similar. The Cask for Europe, which was only available in DE from DeinWhisky.de, was 330 €! I would never have paid this price if I hadn't raped the F5 key on the UK shop pages for days in the hope of getting the UK bottling ????.

    Unfortunately no chance, as each retailer in the UK only received 2 bottles and they often did not even make it into the online shop.
    Fortunately, I had a little more success at Europa Cask, but I had to dig deeper into my pockets.

      Great! The typical Clynelish waxiness jumps straight into the face, paired with vanilla, honeycomb, pineapple, banana and other bright and sweet tropical fruits.
      Alcohol perfectly integrated!

      Oily and thick. Is there immediately and the mentioned aromas are also present in the button. A really intense and impressive taste experience.

      Long, sparkling and neat. HOT!
      There's nothing more to say ...

    Wonderful clash of tropical fruits, creamy notes and spices from the cask. Clynelish at its best.

      Round, creamy and pronounced aroma, the essence of a good bourbon cask. Vanilla pudding, panna cotta and green fresh fruits: apples, unripe bananas and pineapple. Thick honey, wax and dried ginger. Traces of rancio: old dusty trunk. Floral notes in the background. Love it!

      Smooth and mouthfeeling. Apples in caramel, honey, lime juice, cider and tropical fruits: pineapple and unripe mango. Some sunflower seeds, sandal tree and ginger. Full bodied character.
    • Finish
      91 91
      long & smooth, with spices, wax, some fresh grass, apple mint and tobacco at the end.

    Lots of honey, vanilla, sunflower oil and fruits (apples, pears), nicely set, super creamy-oily mouthfeel with a long finish and a delicate note of wood.

    • Nose
      Very fresh, green, but uniquely green. Green peas, slightly aldehydic, fresh green vegetals. With time of course it gets a lot sweeter and a little more resinous and waxy as it supposed to be.
    • Taste
      Green vegetal sweetness, waxy and creamy, mainly towards to the finish.
    • Finish
      On the finish, a lots of vanilla, custard. Mouthcoating and luscious.
