  1. filleadh mhòr scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I like Clynelish and this one is the best I had so far (I had only three), but it's rather pricey compared to the original and the Signatory bottlings. 
    • Nose
      smells much bigger than the Signatory bottling I just had. otherwise it's pretty much the same profile, so citrus, salt - even more than the signatory, brine, minerals, the grade of waxiness is in between the OB (if I remember right) and the Signatory, grass, hay, some light acacia honey, and more fruit than the others: honeydew, cantaloupe, but all that really salted and slightly smoked.
    • Taste
      thick, oily, unexpected sweet arrival, then it turns salty, lemony, then peppery, bitter, again this hint of sharply burnt caramel, light, fine smoke. 
    • Finish
      rather long on salted and caramelized citrus and cantaloupe.

    On the nose: lively and mineral, with green apple, lemon, grapefruit and some exotic fruits, wax, salt, vanilla, some wood and a hint of smoke.

    On the palate: vegetable bitterness, zests of citrus, apple, white pepper, some honey, flowers and vanilla.
