    My favorite of the trilogy: by far the fruitiest and most balanced!

      fruit, apple, vanilla, salty, closed
    • Taste
      apricot, vanilla, apple, maritime spicy (salty, chalk), fairly sweet and soft but with a nice edge

  6. GJR scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant Clynelish.
    • Nose
      Fresh nose, lots of fruit (banana, citrus, tropical fruit (not my strongest side), waxy and fresh clover honey, light wood tones.
    • Taste
      Fruity, somewhat sweet honey, now some nutty tones (cashew, almond, etc.). Very washing. Very nice, but stays nice and cool.
    • Finish
      Long honey sweetness, combined with some bitter wood tones and a light spiciness, combined with dark fruits and some granularity.

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Less waxy but more creamy than cask 6935.
    • Nose
      Honey, vanilla, apple, whipped cream and tangerine. More of the latter when adding water.
    • Taste
      Whipped cream, honey, almond, caramel and apple. With water some orange at the expense of the cream, and then also some wax.
    • Finish
      Honey, creamy caramel, vanilla pudding, orange, almond and apple.

  8. St. Pauli scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A very constant whisky from nose to finish, of good quality.
    • Nose
      Fresh style, quite clean, with vanilla, polished oak, wax, barley and hay. The fruity side reveals apples and oranges. There is a faint smell of cinnamon too. 
    • Taste
      Sweet, but less sweet as the nose suggested. Honey, vanilla, but ample pepper, orange, apple, lemon, melon, mint.
    • Finish
      Fairly long and pleasant. It's well-balanced between sweet, sour and bitter. The pepper is quite present, but not in a disturbing way. Furthermore, there are fruit and hay.
