  2. 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.

  3. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    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.

  4. 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.

  7. tkoppelaar scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    • Nose
      Bourbon cask fragrance. Biscuits, tropical fruit. Banana, mango. Sugared peach.
    • Taste
      Very soft taste. Freshly sweet. Apple, banana a little citrus fruit. Apple syrup. Tea biscuits with sugar. In the end some wood / tannins
    • Finish
      Long sweet and fruity

  8. p4blo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Not overly complex, but very drinkable and likeable.
    • Nose
      Quite some wood there on the nose, the time of bottling seems right. Cinnamon, caramel, pears, honey and black tea. Nice.
    • Taste
      Sweet and fruity with extensive notes of toffee, caramel and oranges. I believe it's the hoghshead influence since these notes are not typical for bourbon casks.
    • Finish
      Rather long, mouthwatering with the sweetness of toffee lingering.

  9. thijs100 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Bit of an atypical Clynelish, both the nose and the palate. But I really like the earthier flavours and the fruity finish.
    • Nose
      Sweet arrival with vanilla, marzipan and marshmallows, but it quickly becomes fruitier. Some (sour) apples, lime and grapefruit followed by bitter oranges. Ends on a grassy note, straw.
    • Taste
      Menthol and a pinch of pepper. Then luscious white grapes and candied lemons. Also some fresh tobacco leaves and mocha. Traces of smoke.
    • Finish
      Fruity finish. Melon and pear.

  10. Sandman scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    It is not a typical Clynelish, but a very tasty whisky. Also quite soft despite the high ABV, beware of water !!
    • Nose
      Vanilla, peach, soft fruit and a little straw
    • Taste
      Melon, peach, a pepper, chocolate and coffee
    • Finish
      Long and warm with sweet notes
