  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [August, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 115 Euro in August, 2016.

    [March, 2017]  I finished another bottle that I bought for 90 Euro in August, 2016.

    [July, 2017]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 115 Euro in August, 2016.

    This is an absolutely clean and complex Clynelish, very delicious.  Spectacular fruity (mangos) and spicy profile combined with an adorable barley sweetness and a vanilla fountain in the end.  No flaws at all and the nuttiness is incredible (all sorts of different nuts).  Very sippable, the bottles empty at a dangerous speed.  Love it...

    A very nice Clynelish, quite light and all the better for it.
    • Nose
      Smells like fresh cream mixed in with pineapple and a touch of apple on first nosing. More white fruits emerge with hot melted butter.
    • Taste
      Wow that woke my palate up, the cream is still there and there is also the trademark Clynelish Waxiness but there I a lovely sweetness and some crisp peat in the mix. It then gets very fizzy, vibrant to be honest with a little white grape juice and hints of lemon meringue.
    • Finish
      Good medium length and remaining sweet wth the initial creaminess remaining

    Drinks very easily. One to stash away and keep out of sight or it will be empty before you know it

      Hawaiian fruits, water chestnuts, typical Clynelish waxiness, some citrus zest creeping up before tasting
    • Taste
      90 90
      Creamy, oily, waxy, fruity, then a dash of soft spice. Coats palate quite nicely
    • Finish
      91 91
      Hit of light pepper, oiliness lingers and then fades nicely, mango.
