    Signature Clynelish, perhaps not the best clynelish of that age that I had so far but it is certainly really good value for money.
    • Nose
      87 87
      Typical clynelish nose with a lot of bees wax. Some shoe polish too. Quite some fruityness like green apples, grapefruit and lime. Some honey and malt in there too.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Again an unmistakable clynelish signature with a lot of bees wax and quite a large viscosity. Again a lot if citrus fruit, now I'm having a lot more lemons and a lot of green apples as well. Some pineapple on the background to complete the fruit basket.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium finish, beeswax stays in the mouth. A small peppery aftertaste dies out quite slowly in the mouth.

    The nose is nice, typical Clynelish but after that I got some unpleasant notes in this whisky. It also lacks complexity and fruitiness.

    Very big on beeswax and waxy texture. It gives a full texture in the mouth which is always nice! A good summer dram to enjoy outside.

    It's pretty rare to meet a bad Clynelish, I think. And it is not yet this time that I will be able to write "yuck". This selection is a very good Clynelish, very typical of the distillery. No (bad) surprise, the quality is at the rendezvous.
    • Nose
      A mixture of green apple, squeezed lemon, iodized smoke, and beeswax. White grapes and honey are invited to the party. A typical nose, but my faith very pleasant.
    • Taste
      The honeyed fruitiness takes over. Grapes, apples, and lemons; all coated with sweet syrup. A pinch of salt twirls here and there steadily. A hint of varnish for furniture after a while.
    • Finish
      Piquant spices grow, along with the saline wave. The fruits fade, leaving a slight fruity dryness behind them.

  8. Implar scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    This Clynelish is a pleasant whisky, dangerously drinkable and very smooth. It does border on being boring though, the wax is a bit too pronounced for me. I’m sure Clynelish fans will love this though.

    • Nose
      I only have a sample, but I imagine there are bees inside the actual bottle. It’s full of luscious beeswax. A confectionary note as well, tutti frutti. Some honey, faint hints of mango and grass and a touch of flowers.
    • Taste
      The wax carries on in the mouth. Accompanied by honey and vanilla. Some melon notes add some sweetness, with time, the faintest hints of pepper come out.
    • Finish
      Well… you probably expected this: more wax. Some hints of flowers join this medium long finish.
