  1. Hemdl scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    A wonderful sweetish-fruity, yet refreshing malt, which fits perfectly with sunny summer weather. Even without maturing in a replaceable "special" grab a single malt, which is far from being boring. A classic and pleasant whisky that I would drink again at any time.
    • Nose
      A sweet surprise blows to me. Lots of ripe and honey-peared pears spread a wonderfully sweet aroma. Spicy-sweet malt also mixes with green grapes and a hint of flower meadow. Behind it a slightly pointed and refreshing mint note, which I attribute to the alcohol. After some time there is still some caramel.
      Fruity and fresh at the same time, but neither overloading, nor boring. Very pleasant in the nose!
    • Taste
      The 55.6% volume percent make the tongue tingle and then spread like a cool wind in the mouth. The salivation is stimulated, the Malt is also here as sweet as in the nose. A subtle hint of vanilla sets in the storm of recurring honey pears. These are even more noticeable here, something reminiscent of pear compote. At the second sip then some oak and slightly salty.
    • Finish
      In the relatively dry and not so long finish here a bit stronger and spicy oak, the Malt trickles vigorously and warming down the throat. Surprisingly, here is a slight hint of salt.

    Typical Clynelish. Gets better with a drop of water, especially the nose improves a lot.
