    Vanilla, mineral, wax. Strong, tart, a hint of smoke, barrel wort at the end. No bad.

  5. lincolnimp scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    With water it gets even fruitier and creamier.

    I really like the profile of this one, not a hint of bitterness and fruit up front.
    • Nose
      Definite notes of vanilla, butter, buttercream, Turkish Delight (yellow) and a little warm biscuit.
    • Taste
      Quite creamy and sponge cake sort of thing. There is a little lemon and tinned peaches in syrup.

      There is also a little honeydew melon and some trademark waxy notes.
    • Finish
      Medium on fruit and cream

  7. Roel scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I tried about 10 Clynelish the last two months, two rows of five each. Overall, this was together with a Distillery Only and the 1997 gem from Wemmys one that belonged to the top. A very affordable dram of high  quality. Very recommended for Clynelish fans and those into finding out the essence of the distillery.
