    Blenders glass
    Comparative tasting of Clynelish 14 2005 wb20451 and 2020 wb169264

    Identical in color - gold.

    2005: sweet pears, sour apples, light liquid honey, the trademark waxiness is present 22
    2020: strong synthetic pear scent - "Duchess" lollipops / lemonade, vanilla, butter dough, behind all this there is no signature waxiness 21

    2005: sweet (honey), fruity sourness, vanilla 21
    2020: sweet (ripe yellow fruit and honey), waxy taste (honeycomb), peppermint 21

    The finish.
    2005: medium duration, fresh wood, herbal bitterness 20
    Balance 21
    Total 84
    2020: medium, sweet, honey, pleasantly peppery and bitter 21
    Balance 21
    Total 84

    Against the background of 2005, where all the aromas are natural, 2020 looks like a Chinese fake, but 2020 is more pleasant and drinkable in taste and aftertaste. As a result, both are 84, but they are different.

    Clynelish is one of my favorite whiskys. But this particular release is like "Clynelish at the minimum"

    P.S.after a month and a half has passed and less than half of the bottle is left in the bottle - my beloved Clynelish "returned"

    An easy sipper - some nice citrus notes to make you dream of warmer months. Not bad value either.
