  1. markjedi1 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A sweet powerhouse
    that really hit the spot for me, but 155 EUR is not cheap. Luckily you can add
    quite a bit of water if you want. It swims like a champ.
    • Nose
      Beeswax, honey, candy
      floss, lemon and the skin of apples. That is the nose of this Clynelish in a
      nutshell. Almond shavings that turn into nougat. Softer than expected, to be
      honest. Barely any spices. The alcohol level is not noticeable on the nose.
      After some five minutes it really starts to smell like those wonderful Café
      Noir cookies. Adding water barely makes a change.
    • Taste
      Even on the palate,
      it is not really an alcohol bomb. Well, surely it is very powerful and spicy,
      but provided you sip and do not gulp, it is quite drinkable. I get more mineral
      elements now as well as a truckload of citrus and sultanas. Some tonic. It
      remains nicely sweet on sugar candy and some caramel. Diluted it is more
      accessible, but the profile remains the same.
    • Finish
      It lingers amazingly
      long in the finish.

    Super! Bright in aroma, lively, assertive, thick to stickiness. Juicy and strong in taste, although without extremity. Very unusual.
