Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1990 CA

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.30 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    It's a half-disappointment, especially after such a promising start. Enthusiasm: Nose 4/5 Mouth 3/5 Final 2/5 Whisky n ° 1608
    • Nose
      Slightly waxy, what's more natural for a Clynelish, but especially very fresh, with distinct notes of aromatic herbs (thyme, laurel ..) Surprising profile!
    • Taste
      Fluid is round but I expected more maturity of a 24 years. Vanilla, slightly creamy, vaguely honeyed. It is well done but a bit simple.
    • Finish
      Very slightly tart, not very long and a little weak in volume.

  2. DDiep did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Cadenhead's offcial tasting notes:

    Nose: Very sweet; pear skins, over ripe bananas, melon and brown sugar. 

    Palate: An initial trace of smoke leading to a dry flint note and then the fruit notes develop. Quite syrupy with peaches and plums. 

    Finish: Typical waxy fruits and distant dry smoke notes.
