    • Nose
      Few waxy tones, but you immediately smell first-fill ex bourbon, paired with orange, mandarin, coconut, blood orange, pepper, vanilla, milk chocolate and heather honey. Light, grassy and fresh with apple and pear.
    • Taste
      Honey, pineapple juice, orange peel, blood orange, vanilla, pepper, grassy, pear and apple. A non waxy whisky, fresh and accessible.
    • Finish
      Honey, pear, apple, green apple, pear, milk chocolate, pineapple juice, slightly apricot with a fresh, tart finish paired with pepper at the end.

  3. marcusjang scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Fairly delicious, but I'm not getting the Clynelish waxiness as much as I'd have liked. Drinks more like a generic first-fill Bourbon cask matured highlander. Thankfully the alcohol presence is minimal for the ABV.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, coconut, apples, slightly peppery, faintly waxy, bananas
    • Taste
      Ripe apples, lemony, slightly sooty, creamy texture, faintly waxy
    • Finish
      Oak, some white pepper, average in length, apple peel, cocoa powder
