Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1988 DT

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.00 points

  1. Andara scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Lucky to be able to try the third whisky from the Octave series in 2 weeks. This one was the best.

    Color: Copper
    Nose: Fresh, a salty breeze from the sea. After that citrus and some honey
    Taste: Bamm, first impression is quite alcoholic and spicy, after that a long, extended finish. The only 48% feel like more.
    Finish: Overall the beginning is a little challenging, but he wins from the middle on and gets a long, dry finish. Notes of salt, chilli, vanilla, coffee turning into mocha and caramel.

    It grows on you.

    Beautiful golden color pours with a nose of butterscotch disks, light peat, varnish and tobacco.  Mouth is full with sweet fruits, slightly oily with a honeyed finish.  Quince and wax.  Beautiful dram.
