  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 86 points Administrator

    Known for its waxiness, Clynelish 14 is a Highland Single Malt primarily matured in ex-bourbon casks. Scotch mist gives an indication that it is non-chill filtered. Creamy honey, candle wax and lemon juice are prominent on the nose, while rich floral notes with a hint of peppermint lurk in the background. The arrival is warming and aromatic, unfolding a distinctly dry and oily character. Oak bitterness with a touch of salt dominates the medium-length finish. Altogether, it is an engaging and intense malt that requires time and is not suitable as everyday dram.

    Quite surprised by this standard that I had circled around for some time. Tastings have positive effects, especially on this one;-) Give it a try - a nice bang for your buck bottling.

    spicy on the tongue, but a creamy mouthfeel. A really nice highland malt. A solid whisky, really nice.

    I could not fully convince myself ...
    • Nose
      74 74
      In the nose dominate the flowery impressions, Hubba Bubba chewing gum and artificial strawberry flavor and pear juice. A few butter cookies with whole hazelnuts are still present after all.
    • Taste
      79 79
      In taste, these impressions of fruit - now mirabelle and peaches -, pastries, summer flowers and mead are strangely intensified again.
    • Finish
      78 78
      In the finish remain fruit sweetness and a few fresh oak staves hang, but rather short.

      Mittelang, sweet and oak. Two-dimensional, but tasty. PVL top.
