11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.58 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A difficult Clynelish to me. Complex and Multi-layered, but a tad too bitter for my taste.
    • Nose
      A light fresh nose with touches of cereal. Ripe apples. Peach and honey as well. Sandal wood. Whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Lots of citrus fruit. Lemon and lime. Zesty. Orange peel. Quite astringent and punchy actually. Also some influence of ashes and tar.
    • Finish
      Long. Bitter-sweetness pf pink grapefruit.. Developing into salt flavours at the end. Also pepper, nutmeg and clove.

  3. Falnor scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    Clynelish is always a good option. This one is ok, but there are far beter options. I missed this full waxy roundness.
    • Nose
      Some nice fruits to start with. Mandarins and apple. White bread, malty core with some sugarmelon. A slight waxy scent.
    • Taste
      A little less fruity than the nose. Still some orange left. The alcohol gives it more punch and makes it bigger, but can't hold on to become a good clynelish. Vanilla cream and cake.
    • Finish
      Lots of sugar and candy, not dry or very spicy (except for the pepper).

  6. Defeatless scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nose: fruity sour note. Sweet syrup. hint of mint and fresh herbs. Has something which more Clynelish have and is often described as waxy it pops up better when water is edit.

    Initial taste: sweetness, apple pear pineapple (canned fruit syrup), with water there is some sour note too. Just a bit of a alcohol burner though.

    Body: full and oily but had fuller once from Clynelish

    Finish: long and heavy. The sweetness is there and tickles the tongue!

    Price: reasonable

    Presentation: don't know this was a sample

    Comments: Sample from sample swap with Hvdree
