Surprisingly multi-faceted. At the beginning, I perceive a pronounced floral-fruity note. Floral aromas, dark forest honey, crème brûlée, plenty of caramel, subtle candle wax and echoes of exotic fruits dominate my first impressions. The basic character is pleasantly light, but without being powerless, very fresh and balanced. In the background I already register the first spicy oak notes and a maritime flavor, which reminds me of a fresh sea breeze. Makes you want to more!
Very pleasing the Clynelish clothes the entire mouth (creamy texture), before a fruity-spicy interplay begins. The alcohol content of 46% ensures a powerful onset, at the tip of the tongue creates a very slight tingle (Pfeffrigkeit). Vanilla, caramel, dark forest honey, orange peel, apricot and malt dominate the fruity-sweet side. The spicy-maritime side is characterized by spices (cloves, a hint of cinnamon), walnuts, spicy oak notes and salt (sea breeze).
Medium long, warm and spicy. The floral-fruity aromas build up with the last of their strength, before a strong conglomeration of spices, hints of herbs and oak is gaining in tasteful upper water. The result is a slight dryness and a delicate bitterness on the palate.

- Good malt bring fair price.
Sinks a little from the nose to the finish. Still accepted standard.
Nice fresh, very fruity beginning.
There is also vanilla, some hay and a pleasantly sweet note. Honey, some wax and salty, maritime. A more artificial citrus note seems rather out of place between the other flavors.
Sparklingly spicy, not really spicy.
Sweetness and fruit are dominant.
And creamy with this light maritime sea breeze. Great malt that offers a lot.
Medium-long finish, gets a little dry with a subtle lemon note.
- Great nose or great aroma.
Very complex, sweet. A filled fruit basket covered with a little wax, lemon and a lot of forest honey. Very tasty until the finish. This is bitter and robs you of a great impression
- already pleasantly sour and quite interesting, but not quite my taste.
Lime, green apple, a bit grassy, wax ?, little oak
sweet at once, then distinctly Granny Smith apple (but one that is not yet ripe and leaves a "dull" feeling), a sharpness that I would put somewhere in the mint
medium (5/10), dry and slightly salty
- A beautiful, dense, very round and harmonious and not so mild Highlander, it took a few drams until I found access, but now it opens to me, why he has many followers
Citrus fruits, floral notes, honey, cereals, slightly salty
Full and oily, sweetish-bitter, creme brulee with orange peel and some cinnamon, bourbon vanilla
Medium long, the dark citrus fruit paired with some oak take over the finish
