    Nose : Waxy, citrusy and smoky. Seabreeze. Candied lemon. Honey and farmy notes. Fresh it's a fresh exciting nose.

    Mouth : Juicy citrusy attack with a bit of oak. Slightly bitter. Pepper, mint.

    Finish : Long, waxy, lemony, honey.

    A fantastic fresh and citrusy Clynelish. Loved it.

    Tasting from october 2016.

  2. very_bad_day scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    A whisky of rare freshness!
    • Nose
      Abused, the beeswax candle I made when I was a mino! Lemon, lime, lemongrass, sea air, it's salty, a hint of peat, mint leaves. What a freshness !
    • Taste
      The same! It's: Fresh, honeyed, lemony, salty, peppery, very very slightly peaty, minty and fresh.
    • Finish
      Long. On beeswax, honey all flowers and lemon zest.

  3. Volanne scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    The nose itself is stupendous. The mouth is quite "Clynelishy", but the slight bitterness might disturb you.
    • Nose
      Mouth watering. All kinds of crystallized citrus fruits, and a pinch of farmy peat. And the sweetness of canned pineapple. Great sweet & sour combo. Very complex and tantalizing.
    • Taste
      Sharper now, with grapefruit (both pink and yellow) and lemon zest. Quite peppery, and slightly bitter (lemon zest again...)
    • Finish
      Very long, sustained by the classy bitterness of grapefruit skin.

  4. MaltMartin scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    A very citrussy Clynelish.
    • Nose
      Scented candle wax. Also light polished oak. Pineapple, peach and apricot. Citrus fruit as well. Honey and some flowery notes. Even a whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Lots of citrus fruit now. Lemon and lime. Orange peel. It's all quite astringent, citric and sharp. Cedar wood. Also metalic notes.
    • Finish
      Long. Bitterness of pink grapefruit. At the end some salt.

  5. Ikkakumon scored this whisky 95 points Expert Senior

    Wonderful.
    • Nose
      Splendid, candied lemon, wax, yellow fruit, wet grass, a little honey, a hint of peat on the back.

      With water: the fruits go back a bit to the surface.
    • Taste
      Powerful (well-integrated alcohol) and complex, lots of spices (pepper, sweet pepper, clove), lemon, some honey and vanilla, some herbs, wax, a hint of sea salt, a bit of smoke.

      With water: we notice some fruity touches (pear, plum, orange) additional.
    • Finish
      Very long on pepper, a little woody.

    Notes from Serge - www.whiskyfun.com

    A sister cask of the two excellent Prestonfields that were selected by la Masion du Whisky last year. Colour: white wine - pale straw. Nose: ah, good news, this is much more typically Clynelish. More phenolic and much phenolic and much more lemony, with a beautiful sharpness and quite some peat, although less than in the first Prestonfiel. Hints of pineapples, humus, grated lemon skin, grapefruits, green tea (or rather white tips), beech wood smoke... Also ripe gooseberries... Quite some oak as well but it`s perdectly integrated. What a lovely and complex nose!

    Mouth: this is considerably better than the 1970. The attack is totally Clynelish, waxy, superbly citrusy and beatifully spicy (various peppers). We have also quite some lemon balm, spearmint, peat oak... Then crystallised orange and lemon zests. It`s actually a little rougher than the Prestonfields, maybe it could have stayed in its cask for a last five or ten more years. Finish: very long, lemony, peaty and peppery, with always quit some wax and the usual dash of salt. Very sligt cardboardiness, which is the only (very, very small) flaw. 91 points.

  9. Sonett scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Despite being very light with hard to identify nose it is a good dram even if i not give it a higher score than 85
    • Nose
      Light hard to identify tones of citric fruits and herbs. with water and some rest, a hint of banana appears.
    • Taste
      Vague tasrte of peat followed by increasing taste of vanilla and spices.
    • Finish
      medium long. with some added water the finish gets a dry end

  10. mmaclean scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Had the chance to try this today, fantastic! Went to let the owner of

    this liquor store try the Balvenie tun 1401 #3 and he pulled this out.

    He said it was given him to try from a friend from Scotland. I Liked it

    and haven`t tried any of these before, well done!
