Vladimir Ziryanov gave this whisky 88 points

Нос: в первую очередь мед и немного воска, что-то конечно есть от Клайнлиша, но почему-то больше в Балвени уводит, некая кремовость и табак, и в завершении небольшой удар специй или это отголоски градуса? :)

Вкус: ой, достаточно спиртуозно, надо делать глотки поменьше и наверное дать постоять все-таки, аромат не предвещал такого удара по рецепторам, тяжело выхватить что-то сразу. Забористо. Активно расходится тепло, как-будто на холоде замерз, выпил приличную порцию спиртного и алкоголь плавно опускается вниз :). Ментол. Немного карамели и апельсинов.

Финиш: очень явственно проступает бочка, дуб и некая горчинка, перчик. Достаточно длинное дубовое послевкусие вперемешку с фруктами и специями, даже наверное излишне дубовое.

Не очень многогранный молт, весьма легкий и сладкий в аромате, но достаточно суровый и мощный во вкусе и долгий в послевкусии и очень-очень согревающий. Хорошо.

Итого: 87-88, ближе к 88

Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

Clynelish 18 yo 1997/2015 (56.1%, Archives, bourbon hogshead, cask #6942, 80 bottles) Five stars Only a micro-bottling but a nice fish on the label. Colour: white wine. Nose: probably not the same cask, but the juice is almost the same as that of the Liquid Treasure (never was a name so carefully chosen). Perhaps is this one a tad chalkier. With water: superlative mossy and sooty nose. Mouth (neat): yeah, more or less the same. Perhaps a little more vanilla this time, and one more touch of aniseed. Now it’s no pastis, as they used to say in old French movies. With water: exceptional, waxy tangerines and oranges, pink grapefruits, a touch of mint and liquorice… Really my kind of doobage (so to speak, eh!) Finish: quite long, totally perfect. A sweeter side, with some orange blossom honey. Comments: the best distillate in Scotland. Fact! By the way, Diageo, you have a new girl at the visitor centre (well, that wee room), a young blond one. Just wanted to say that she’s perfect! Please keep her! SGP:562 - 91 points.

With a few drops of water the nose is simply stunning! Lovely complexity.
The taste is slightly bitter but after some time that disappears.
