  1. Mannix65 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Typical Bourbon-Clynelish with beautiful waxy flowery and fruitiness - be careful with water: 1 drop is good for you, 2 are already too much and take the fruit a little to the detriment of woody bitterness
    • Nose
      89 89
      Beeswax, gorse blossoms, prickly pear, a fragrant flower garden, elderberry lemonade, unripe white mountain peaches, quince, crushed grain, fruit cake, toast, a bit mineral
    • Taste
      88 88
      Again clearly the prickly pear, green melon, quince and mirabelle plums, light malt and fruit sweetness - water brings out the mineral and metallic note of rhubarb compote, behind it the dry oak with a subtle bitterness
    • Finish
      87 87
      medium length - fruity sweet and dry

  2. Erik Elixir scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Compared wit Clynelish 1997 DoD, Clynelish 1997 ANHA, Clynelish 1997 TWC and Clynelish 1996 SMS.

    This is the most floral Clynelish.
    • Nose
      Smoke, wax, citrus, some ashes and floral - potpourri.
    • Taste
      Floral, citrus - grape fruits, syrup and some smoke. Vanilla, some wax and hops - saaz.
    • Finish
      Bitter fruits, lemon, wax, spices and some pickle - MacDonals sauce.

    Not much to say here, except for that it is certainly one of the best modern Clynelishes I've tasted. 
    • Nose
      Candlewax followed by fruit, from green to more tropical. Freshly cut apples, lemon, pineapple, banana and mango. There's some ginger here too, and after a while it gets a bit grassy with some cane sugar. But in the end it is the fruit that returns and dominates.
    • Taste
      Waxy with orange, lemon, tangerine and a bit of oak (sawdust). Some vanilla, and chalk with ginger and grapefruit, also some wood spices.
    • Finish
      White grapes, pear and apples and lots of wax. Very long.

    If you like them fruity and creamy it doesn't get any better than this I guess. Just the right balance between fruity spirit and spicy wood influence. Excellent dram! 
    • Nose
      Oranges, lemons, pineapple, banana, mango, powdered sugar, caramel sauce, maple syrup, grilled agave. No, better yet: there's some mescal in there. No doubt. And of course the famous paraffin wax coating. I love this!! Also some sweet white wine (Muscat) 
    • Taste
      Thick and creamy sweet arrival. Sweet lemonade (lemon drink) with vanilla and flower honey. Very, very waxy. A lot like vanilla scented candles. The total experience is very balanced and civilized. A little water brings out more vanilla and spreads the aroma's a bit more. Is that some woodsmoke? It's the mescal again ;)
    • Finish
      long, a little dry and very waxy (again). In the end it becomes a bit more mineral with some chalk.

  5. KayMeertens scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Had a really small sample of this one.
    • Nose
      Lemon, tangerine, caramel, vanilla, honey and limestone. More creamy after a while, but the sour citrus stay dominant.
    • Taste
      Citrus, honey, lime and vanilla. A weird waxiness, like aroma candles (not that I ever had a bite). Quite floral as well.
    • Finish
      Lemon, tangerine, honey and a whiff of mint.

  6. LDB scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    A good example of a well-made broraesque whisky!

  7. M134481 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      89 89
      Wax, pot pourri, citrus, vanilla, sweet popcorn, sweet fruit
    • Taste
      88 88
      Wax, pepper, vanilla, sweet, fruit and pot pourri. Citrus fruits and perfume.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Wax, pepper, vanilla, fruit and citrus fruit and pot pourri. It also becomes very floral and spicy at the end.
