Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 11-year-old GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.40 points

  1. melonwan scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    not a very typical clynelish. Less wax and sweeter than the ob 14 year. a little sulphur in a good way. it reminds me some delicate springbank sherry cask. In general, it is a very good whisky at decent price. It is suitable for drinking at night while watching tv.

    A lot of sherry influence doesn't steal all of the Clynelish characteristics. "Hot" for a 46%. Recommended.
    • Nose

      Immediate sherry influence is evident, with notes of dried tobacco, sweet prunes, and candy bars. Confectioners shoppe. Beeswax and malt in the background.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sherried and spicy. Sea salt, chocolate, black pepper. Dried plantains. Oak and some dark red wine. Waxy mouth feel.
    • Finish
      83 83
      Rather long, dry, and spicy. Alcohol soaked cherries. Salt. More sherry notes on the palate. Stays waxy in the mouth.
