  1. thijs100 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A fine drop with a winning nose, this Clynelish 2011 11 Years bodes well for future, hopefully slightly older releases from this or similar vintages.
    • Nose
      Candle wax and vanilla custard accompanied by candied bananas, pickled lemon peel and a whisper of Greek yoghurt. Finally some tinned pineapples too. Very satisfying.
    • Taste
      Nice, viscous mouthfeel. Banana-flavoured gelato, tinned peaches and sweet mango, but also some white pepper and lemon pith. Water brings out a pleasant minerality, a hint of brine and some wood spices.
    • Finish
      A touch of mint, pollens and lingering spices. Medium in length.

    • Nose
      Starting with a lot of fresh dough notes up front, then getting sweeter with bananas, brown sugar, and a hint of pineapple ice cream, creme Anglaise, and the well-known waxiness you expect to find in a Clynelish, give it more time and some hint of lemon and more vanilla reveal themselves.
    • Taste
      Really oily and viscous, almost chewable on the palate, the waxiness is very much noticeable as well as a nice fruitiness mostly on the tropical side with the pineapple from the nose, and banana crumble. A certain spiciness as well with pepper with a bitter finish of grapefruit pith.
    • Finish
      Wax, salt, a hint of sweet dough notes juxtaposed by the bitter citrus pith followed by brine.

  4. Izzino scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    I really enjoyed this. A beautiful 11-year-old whisky. Super fruity, candy, very fresh.
