  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Enthusiasm: Nose 2/5 Mouth 3/5 Final 4/5 Whisky n ° 1364
    • Nose
      Powerful, aggressive limit on the nose, there are discreet vegetal notes, waxy malt tending towards the varnish. Some green apples are trying to make their way. The imbalance is quite notorious, it's a shame!
    • Taste
      On the palate, quite mellow, very spicy (too much?)
    • Finish
      Final warm and full, long, finally revealing his age.

  3. Rowald Sweet Empire scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Classic Clynelish. Wax. Vanilla. Salt. Quite spicy. Some hay/apple and citric notes. Giving it some time pays off.

  4. puusj scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Sweet (honey) and parfumerous all the way. In a good way. Very tasty!

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    There's something slightly musty in this one (I described it as limestone) which keeps it from scoring higher. And from being more expensive probably, that's the other side of it...
    • Nose
      Lime, honey, limestone, vanilla, hazelnut and touches of salt and malt. Perhaps even something like white wine. A little of that characteristic beeswax, but not a lot.
    • Taste
      Honey, lime wine gum, limestone, almond and vanilla. Something that reminds of a church as well.
    • Finish
      Honey, vanilla, lime, peanut, white wine and again a tad of salt.

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A "daily dram" of choice! A Clynelish of this age, even reduced, at this sweet price is a good deal.
    Out of there, the age does not taste in the mouth, it could be 14 years old that I would not feel the difference
    • Nose
      I feel like I smell fish, it is destabilizing and unexpected. Furniture wax, too. A little citrus. A smell of glue afterwards.
    • Taste
      The reduced side of this whisky feels, without being watery (phew!). Citrus acidulated and peppered.
    • Finish
      Medium finish on green apple (light bitterness) and slightly peppery.
