  1. Falnor scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I love the waxy nose of these '80's clynelish and this one is similair with a lot of those beauty's. Very buttery on the palate, sweet citrus and a feeling of walking trough a meadow with a fresh stream of water and spring flowers.

    Still there are even greater Clynelish '89 to be found. Like a few from Twa or the suberb from Thosop.

      Not your typical clean, waxy, fruity Clynelish. More notes of cake, melted butter and milk chocolate. Without the excess of vanilla, which is a good thing in my opinion.
      Takes some getting used to when your expecting those mid 90's clean notes. But this warmer variation is very nice nonetheless.
      After some time wax and some warm fruit peeks around the corner.

      Sweet and buttery as expected from the nose. Very drinkable at cask strenght.
      Developing in more stone fruit.
      Clynelish wax is more upfront here.

      Well there's the wax in all it's glory. With some bitter fruity notes at the very end.

    Aroma confectionery: toffee, vanilla ice cream, cream, milk chocolate, wax, sweet fruit (a little melon, ripe apple, a hint of dried fruits), grass (fresh and slightly dried), warm wood, minerality. Sweet taste : honey, wax, citrus notes, chocolate, vanilla cream, spices (pepper, vanilla), malt, wood, mineral bitter. Aftertaste : malt, astringent oak, toffee, light bitterness. Quite simply. Conclusion . For 22 years somehow nondescript. The fragrance is good. A taste and aftertaste from another opera. In general, not bad, but expected more. Score 85 (n22t21f21b21).
