16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.82 points

  1. aphex scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose : The Clynelish wax is here. Very fruity. Apple, pear, mirabelle, citrus. Slighly mineral.

    Mouth : Waxy again. Honey, yellow fruits, lemon, salt and still this mineral notes.

    Finish : Salty, peppery, fruity, smoky.

    That was very good, very moreish. A shame I splitted it.

    Tasting from october 2017.

  2. Ganga scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Lovely nose.  Leather, fruits, heather

    Palate is very nice.  Waxy.  Not as good as the nose.

    Finishes nice but wish it would last longer.

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The reduction does not feel, the 46% are well balanced. This is a very typical Clynelish (lovers of this distillery will be thrilled, others will pass their way), waxy, salty, and very fruity. To me, it speaks to me, I love.
    • Nose
      It stands out directly as being in the "attractive" category. First, it is typical of Clynelish, with this waxy side recognizable among a thousand. Then, he proposes a mixture very fruity and greedy. Green banana, yellow apple, juicy pear, plum blossom. It starts well this business, I like it a lot!
    • Taste
      The Clynelish leg continues its momentum. Salt peach, a bit of fruity bitterness, nectarine syrup. A creaminess of pulp. The bitterness disappears as soon as the second sip, while salinity ensures its dominant place.
    • Finish
      Average. The salty paper paste sticks to the palate, while the apple peel settles in the throat.

  5. Sapiano scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    I just had the second time in the glass:

    Clynelish 23 1991 Wy WID: 61981 (undiluted)
    Nose: First, sour lemon, herbs, basil, honey, some menthol, peach, wax. Later also limes and minerals. Menthol is gone. Hints of ash.
    Taste: Strong onset, just as hot, then waxy sweetness comes. Rather honey instead of caramel. It stays consistently sharp, but the sweetness can hold good against it.
    Second sip: The start is much fruity and waxy. Peach. It takes longer until the sharpness comes. The tongue bizzels similarly as with Szechuanpfeffer. Memories of a China trip awake.
    Third sip: somehow watery but not less spicy. The wax is still there.
    Finish: wax, caramel, ginger, tongue burns for several seconds, the esophagus is warm for a long time, still some caramel in the mouth, long, but not very long.
    Conclusion: I somehow did not remember him so much at the first sip.

  7. rottendon scored this whisky 68 points Connoisseur

    Overall taste not bad but very thin, almost watery, both the mouthfeel and the aromas. Somehow there is nothing. In addition, the sugary water-like in taste, reminiscent of cheap blends.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    I'm confused. One of the worst single-malts I have ever encountered, including a second tasting, did not give a different picture here. Due to the thin flavors and the metallic feeling I would have typed on a six-year Clynelish, and with the tip and the rating I was not alone (50 people gave him an average of 6.38 out of 10 points). The extremely high scores are incomprehensible to me, but tastes are luckily different. But where was that which tasted good or bad?
    • Nose
      Start fresh minty with hints of vanilla and citrus; very closed. After a while, light vanilla notes, light fruits and some malt are added, still quite tender. Maybe a hint of smoke? The nose is warmed up a little stronger and sweeter, vanilla and red fruit candy, with an idea of ​​pears. Something floral hovers over it.
    • Taste
      Strong start but still delicate aromas. Only some sugary honey and mint can be found. Heated notes of dark caramel and some sour notes develop on the palate.
    • Finish
      In the short finish, the sweetness remains short, the Malt sounds minty. A little oak accompanies the finish, but also very discreet, but a metallic bitterness seems to be present.

  9. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    An impressive whisky.
    • Nose
      Fresh citrus fruits, lemon and lime. Apple also. Lots of minerals, pretty waxy as well, with some honey A hint of wet cardboard.
    • Taste
      Fairly dry, subtle peat smoke. Chalky and waxy with honey glazed apple. Citrus too.
    • Finish
      Smoky, ashy almost. Salty and waxy with ripe apples.

  10. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not complex but very enjoyable, worth buying
    • Nose
      Honeyed, floral, sweet Danish pastry, hints of pineapple.
    • Taste
      Toffee, banana, slight sherbert, icing sugar. Gets sweeter with time.
    • Finish
      Medium length with candied sweetness.
