  1. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Does he have this beeswax note? Yes he has. And how. However, this is such a good connection with the other flavors received that the beeswax is indeed present as a characteristic of this malt, but not penetrating.
    • Nose
      And there he is already, the beeswax. Directly and immediately, one might think that the candle is in front of it. The nose is soft and velvety and provides at the beginning, in addition to the beeswax, spicy honey notes, yeast and the smell of freshly baked bread. Some violet-like in the background.
    • Taste
      Soft and very creamy on the go. Also on the tongue is the characteristic wax note, surrounded by honey and vanilla and middle-aged oak. The waxy creaminess lasts for a long time and transports herbaceous herbs to the tongue after a while. At the back there is surprisingly a menthol note, which is very refreshing.
    • Finish
      Medium-long and still creamy, with fresh and cooling menthol, honey, vanilla and fruity sweetness.

  2. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Molt is very reserved, secretive, requires a calm and unhurried approach, a good warm-up; a harmonious fusion of the base and the barrel, in my opinion, did not work out, the struggle of the beginnings and some kind of incompleteness is more evident, but as a whole it is good, only necessarily warm up and let him breathe.
    • Nose
      Cool, chopped sliced ​​fruit - apples, pears, peaches, a little dried fruit in the background - dried apricots, raisins, mineral notes - raw stones, metalwork tools in a lubricant with metallic dust, cold porridge, citrus notes and wax, berry tones, more dried fruits, sweets - the aroma as a whole is quite closed, It is necessary to pull out and catch the components.
    • Taste
      Restrained, peppery on the growing sweet-sour background of the struggle of green apples and unsweetened oranges with the sweetness of dried apricots and raisins (the winner is not identified), watery.
    • Finish
      White pepper, dried apricots and raisins, but not sweet, but rather with sour citrus, medium in duration.

  6. Don Cassi scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    Nice and fruity-fresh on the nose of orange and apricot with light vanilla and peach.
    In the mouth fruity-sweet with a slight alcoholic bite. On the slightly too short finish, spicy with notes of sherry and oak and a bit of spiciness.

    Nice everyday whisky without much complexity. Unfortunately one of the weaker Distillers Editions.

    Grade: 2

  7. LDB scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Interesting! Tastes elegant and fruity, but not very "clynelian". The bottle was just opened, however, so the neck pour is not as good as the malt has developed later, so the text is 1 point behind the score.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Apricot, sweet seasoning, fruit tart baked with brown sugar, mostly with apricots and a few ripe oranges
    • Taste
      88 88
      First a few dried figs, liquorice, but then it gets peppery, even a little bouncy. With time and air in the bottle, it becomes rounder and with more honey.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Candied fruits withdraw in favor of a slight bitterness before the flow of saliva lets the residual sweetness drip from the palate. Overall medium-long finish.
