Eilean a' Cheo gave this whisky 88 points

nose: the best part of this whisky, quite complex for its age but fresh at the same time, a natural nose with honeys and waxes and the right amount of slightly tropical fruitiness,some mineral elements and a distant sea breeze are also there with a hint of peat

mouth:quite fierce attack less mellowed than the nose with more mineral elements and lots of spicies mostly ginger, lots of lemons, the other fruits of the nose present unripe and the waxiness is now discreet and citron flavoured

finish: a bit fresh and sour 

90 for the nose and 86 for the palate
so an overall 88

Nose

Sharp : minéral, pierre à fusil, zesty, poivré. L’alcool picote tout de même un peu.

Taste

Beaucoup plus douce que ne le faisait penser le nez. Vraiment liquoreux. L’aromatique me fait penser à l’ananas, le citron vert, pas mal d’épices et une étonnant côté « lardé » qui contraste avec le reste. Une jolie présence en bouche.

Finish

Longue, sèche, légère amertume, épices et poivre

Comments

Un Clynelish plutôt classique

Old gold
Nose

A very fresh start with light citrus notes and freshly cut grass. The signature Clynelish wax is here in its full glory. Orange and pineapple complement farmier notes. With water the nose gets a bit more coastal and less waxy.

Taste

Ginger, vanilla, mandarin and pepper. It's a bit too stingy for my taste, even after adding water. The woody flavors that appear with water don't exactly improve the palate.

Finish

Waxy. Fruity and spicy, although mostly fruit in the form of pineapple and pear. It lingers for a long time.

Comments

A very good nose and an even better the finish, but the palate can't keep up. Still very good and I'd be happy to have a bottle.
