    A nice, mature, very good Clynelish for a great price!

    [Color] white wine;
    • Nose
      pleasant sweetness, citrus fruits, wild herbs, vanilla;
    • Taste
      soft onset, fully swelling; Sweetness (marzipan), fruits (limes, lemons), vanilla, becoming dry; complex;
    • Finish
      long finish; Marzipan sweetness echoes forever;

  2. tommy12 scored this whisky 84 points Member Senior

    Color: very light, pale yellow, restrained pleasant smell, alcohol easily noticeable, pleasant taste: citrus fruits, pleasant full sweetness, honey, no bitterness, in the finish a very slight touch of candle smoke, tolerates a little water. Finish: long, light sweetness, pineapple, price / performance ratio (just under 50 euros) fine, but by far not intense enough for the age.

  3. Goethe scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Lovely Clynlish from the Un-Chillfiltered Collection. A great nose. The malt is getting more tropical fruits by adding some water like the other Clynelish from the Un-Chillfiltered Collection from SV.Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10
    • Nose
      Oily mustard barley, citrus fruits, apples, vanilla, pineapple, some fresh oak, honey.
    • Taste
      Oily mustard barley, citrus fruits, sparkling pineapple (due to bromelain), fresh oak, hints of salt.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Salt and citrus fruits.
