  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 92 points Moderator

    Actually I had to revise my initial tasting note and rating significantly because after the bottle was open for a while there has developed a great freshness and fruitiness that I didn't notice before. Now I really like it very much!
    • Nose
      92 92
      Lots of fresh and green fruits, green bananas, appels, citrus fruits, lemons, salty seabreeze - really great
    • Taste
      92 92
      Little punchy, oily, creamy, waxy, almost sirupy, good sweetness, very fruity, more apples, pears, citrus fruits, hints of oak wood - very good
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, warm, still fresh and fruity

    Interesting Clynelish, which reminds of old days ;-)
    • Nose
      Apricot, vanilla, mirabelle
    • Taste
      light bright fruits, some leather, beeswax
    • Finish
      increasing bitterness (almonds)

  4. dram-drinker scored this whisky 92 points Moderator

    Not bad at all - quite affordable for a 21yo - qualifies as daily dram
    • Nose
      Green fruits, a bit leafy, dry hay, honeydew, little citric, hints of ham and bacon - not bad
    • Taste
      Oily, punchy, subtle sweetness, citrus fruits, meaty, ham, nutty
    • Finish
      Long and warm, zesty, leafy again

  5. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2016]  I emptied a bottle that I bought for 106 Euro in November, 2006.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My notes state a very clean and perfectly balanced dram that is hard to resist (usually I had more than just one a night).
