  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A great Clynelish! The PX flavors are very pronounced and dominate the complete tasting. The tart wood notes harmonize perfectly with the syrupy PX sweetness, a great malt! I like it very much!
    • Nose
      Intense and strong amber radiates out of the glass, after panning stick oily and tough streaks on the glass wall. Dark berries and sweet fruit flavors play together, sweet toffee and caramel rises from the sweet fruit. The alcohol is harmoniously integrated and hardly noticeable, subtle apricots and orange peels make themselves felt. A wonderful sweetness dominates the nose.
    • Taste
      Sweet berries and caramel dominate the first impression. Spicy wood and wonderful fruit aroma mix with the almost syrupy sweetness, subtle woody notes penetrate the fruity caramel. In the second moment, the taste of dry and tart wood flavors mingle with intense spice. A subtle leather note and a nut flavor finish the taste.
    • Finish
      The departure begins relatively unspectacular. Spicy wood plays with the sweet fruit, the syrup-like PX aromas are again present and pleasant wood elements come into their own. Spicy, the finish sounds relatively quick and leaves a slightly tart but fruity mouthfeel.

    • Nose
      herbal/plant-y (estragon/tarragon & Majoran/majoram ?), earthy, sweet sherry w some rubber, meat/oxo, tobacco, some ripe-ish apples, a slightly perfume-y molasse note, interesting but a tad disjointed. (84)
    • Taste
      surprisingly sweet, liquor, sherry, quite bit of bitterness behind all the sweetness, more of this disjointed feeling (82)
    • Finish
      mealy/powdery sherry, licorice, woody spices & vanilla/caramel, some slightly red-wine-y tannins, surprising length & warmth for 46%. (85)
      Later: the herbs make their way into the palate & finish as well, again Estragon & Majoran, also the bitterness seems to become more dominant over time. (78)

  3. Lafroy scored this whisky 78 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      A lot of sweetness, vanilla, raisins, sweet plums, grapes, tangerine peel, prunes, hints of leather, herbal notes and just hints of wood varnish.
    • Taste
      It starts with sweet notes of cherry, dark grapes and prunes. After a few seconds here comes some dryness, hints of white pepper, roots and some metallic aftertaste. Additionally, you can find hints of berries, some bitterness and notes of red tea.
    • Finish
      Medium long with some dryness and dried fruits to it. Additionally, here comes white pepper, metallic aftertaste and hot sensation inside stomach.
