  2. Captain.Islay scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Good mouthfeel, strong waxiness that lasts long in the mouth, tropical fruity and lively, also some old aromas, old oak discreetly in the background, alcohol well integrated, with water it becomes fresher. I like it very much.

    • Nose
      Floral. Polished wood. Wax paper. Hints of red fruit. Raspberry drink. Dry sherry. Lemon cake. Bit of a vanilla toffee and butterscotch note develops over time. 
    • Taste
      Candle wax. Sawdust. Dry sherry. Wisps of tobacco. Honey. Dark fruits. 
    • Finish
      Medium. Bitter wood and lingering floral notes. 

  5. Tomh scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Sweet, waxy (less than with other clynelish whiskys). Full balanced taste, stays a long time. Tasted during NaT in Wijchen.

    Clynelish has been my favourite single malt for a very long time and I was very excited to get my hands on this special version. I was sadly let down a bit, it was significantly more expensive than the standard 14 year old expression, and tasted pretty much the same.

  7. granella2003 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    Matured in oak timber and then poured in for his finish in Oloroso Seco
    casks, a finish that give a delicious twist to the sweet tastes and aromas

    The Clynelish is bright golden. The fragrance is complex. Wax candle and beeswax with a little honey, dried citrus and tropical fruits. The aftertaste is slightly peppery and then soft

  8. granella2003 scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet aromas of roasted nuts, malt and salt followed by fruity aromas with sweet vanilla and floral tones
    • Taste
      A soft and sweet taste of peat, fruit and ripe fruit
    • Finish
      A sweet and fruity with pleasant notes of nuts and vanilla

  9. Willie JJ scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    I was surprised to find out that this was Clynelish. Not the best I've had
    • Nose
      Banana, guava, mango and orange
    • Taste
      Lacking somewhat in weight. Water gives it a light sherbetty texture but its just lacking somehow
    • Finish
      Sweet sugary and medium length.
