  1. bvrsky scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The fifth dram of the 1st Glen Creatuur tasting. This is stuff that I like. in the line up of seven drams this dram ended #3 with 21 points. I considered this the best Clynelish of the evening. May-be I need to uplift my WB rating -> 86 points.

  5. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 76 points Expert Senior

    Tasted during a blind tasting competition in June 2015. 
    • Nose
      Vanille met licht fruit (peer), banaan, hinten van citrus. Jong eiken. 
    • Taste
      Kruidig en vanille, ook hier weer banaan; later komt er anijs naar voren. Mooi in balans, maar mist diepte (misschien door z'n jonge leeftijd?). 
    • Finish
      Krachtloze, vrij korte finish.

    Blind tasting of a sample. The nice fruity nose reminded me of Clynelish right away, but I thought that it showed too little waxiness to be one. I ended up guessing Dalwhinnie.
    • Nose
      Honey, green apple, vanilla, apricot, lime, galia melon, orange, limestone and a grassy touch.
    • Taste
      Honey, lime, vanilla, caramel, galia melon, limestone, orange, almond, strawberry, cummin, pepper, a floral touch and a very little bit of beeswax.
    • Finish
      Honey, green apple, lime, chestnut, limestone and a whiff of smoke.

  10. Toffie76 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Classic and good.
    • Nose
      Apples, pears, fresh vanilla, honey, flowers. Clean, fresh, accurate. A mineral nothing too, like a wet rock. A touch of white pepper, nutmeg. A lot of lemon too. A little more lemon with aeration. Or would it be grapefruit? In short, citrus fruits well acidulated. Fruit gums. Nice, this nose.
    • Taste
      Balanced, relatively long, especially the finish. The attack is rounded vanilla / fruit. Then the development leaves more acidity and bitterness before a peak of spices towards the end. It is a beautiful balance on a sweet / bitter / acidic variation. Very nice without crossing the limits.
    • Finish
      The finish is expressed on pepper and a woody bitterness counterbalanced by a return at the end of several waves of vanilla and candied fruit. A bit like an echo of the beginning of the mouth.
