    Fades away quite fast after swallowing. A few drops of water and 5-10 minutes rest will make this better. Sample from Tom @hetwhiskyforum

    Sample from Tom03
    • Nose
      Fresh fruits, citrus and some wax. Briny - salty, a touch of smoke and orange yoghurt.

      Nice fruits, honey and citrus hops like a triple beer. Later some smoke and tobacco. Peach, peat and lychees.
    • Finish
      Vanilla, malty, citrus, fruity and marshmellows.

  8. ValeronDeportivo scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Light in style, but sweet and thick in body.

    Reminded me of some rich lemon cake, lightly soaked with sugar syrup.

    More malty notes in the taste, and a hint of sweet smoke at the end.

    Great Clynelish, even if not fully typical.

  9. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Not really waxy this one. Compared to the last Clynelish from Whiskybroker this one has a much lighter profile. Very tasty nevertheless.
    • Nose
      Honey, orange, lime, vanilla, peanut butter, a little caramel and a floral touch.
    • Taste
      Orange, honey, lime, vanilla and a slightly soapy touch. With water it turns rather nutty. Only after a long time a waxy notes comes through.
    • Finish
      Orange, almond, honey, vanilla and caramel.

    Grown-up-jumpy,  wheels keep on turning. Somebody find me a malt like the old days, these days are gone:-)    Bold 88 - Clynelish! ...
