  2. Archer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    I am pleasantly surprised. The 46% are right for the gold, the taste reflects the Clynelish character very well.
    • Nose
      Oranges in malt, slightly nutritious. Vanilla, honey. The smell of crayons. Mild and a bit reserved, but not uninviting.
    • Taste
      Waxy and oily. Malty. Hazelnut brittle, orange purée, honey and vanilla at the beginning. Leather notes. Becomes slightly peppercurdled and (herbs) spicy. The nut note gets stronger over time. Coffee beans and toffee are coming.
    • Finish
      Medium long and nicely oily, with the remains of orange, toffee, malt and still a lot of nut. A few dried herbs.

    Pleasant, good average. Only with the slight sulfur you should be able to handle.
    • Nose
      Malty, wild honey, slightly flinty. Behind them dried apricots, oranges. Waxy and a little bit kräutrig. Sultanas.
    • Taste
      Silky, pleasing, medium body and density, this time more pronounced sulfur, mineralizing, becoming drier. Touch nuts. Yellow fruity.
    • Finish
      First a bit kräutrig, then Sherrytönig, also here a bit sulfur.
      Pretty dry. Rather short.
