  3. WhiskyNotes scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Too bad this one was really soft. It's great as long as you don't compare it to similar Clynelish. I've had better ones, with just as much fruits, more punch and a better balance with the oak.
    • Nose
      Delicate and mellow, even a little inexpressive at first. After a while it opens up with a juicy fruitiness (lime, yellow apple, white peach, something Albariño-esque), typical waxy notes (paraffin, lemon candles) and flinty notes in the background. Soft hints of vanilla. Faint grassy notes. Very nice but the strength makes you work harder to get the aromas.
    • Taste
      Waxy and citrusy (grapefruit, lemon). A few mineral touches. A bit more oaky dryness now, with hints of fruit tea. It seems too delicate to completely withstand the wood.
    • Finish
      Waxy, lemony and faintly bitterish. Medium long.
