  1. Malt Hans scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Malty and fruity aroma, cardamom, mint, lime,

    mango and dry hay. Vanilla sweet taste, anise, mint, pepper, grapefruit,

    malt and toffee. Medium long, malty and spicy end.

    A
    lovely Clynelish, despite the fact that it does not reach the level of the
    previously mentioned. This is enjoyment with capital E.
    • Nose
      The nose, which is
      excepitonally clean, shows a lot of honey and grapefruit, making it
      bittersweet. Very waxy too. Paraffin. Pineapple cubes. The whole is quite
      mineraly with rocks in the surf and light hints of seaweeds and a pinch of
      salt. Verrrry good!
    • Taste
      On the palte, it
      continues deliciously with a creamy sweetness. Lots of citrus and some apples.
      Become quite maritime quickly. Light peat, sea salt. Midpalate I get some
      tannins and grains, making it younger than its actual 15 years. Towards the end
      it turns slightly bitter, not from the oak but from the grapefruit. Tonic & soda! Very peppery. Ginger and a whiff of nutmeg.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium
      long to long on grapefruit and dies a bittersweet death.
