Andytka3 gave this whisky 86 points

N- Fresh, apple, banana, orange liqueur and chrysanthemum. Highly fragrant with waxy hue bouncing on the base of thick vanilla fudge with whiff of mineral and sawdust, some pencil shaving there too.


P- While not pronounce on the nose, the highland style peat take center-stage on the palate, comes along dried fruits with subtle scents of root, butter, heather and mineral.   Much better than the GM 2000 release.


F- Medium-long, grassy sweet peat carry on with spiky wood, a little raw, a little pale, but good body.

Cubey666 gave this whisky 87 points

Tasted it at the first Whiskybase Gathering in Rotterdam (26 November 2016).

Nose: Some hints of stewed cooked fruits. Together with toffee candies and chocolate fudge. As well as some brownies cookie dough

Taste: Creamy with fruit and chocolate

Finish: quite fruity and slowly drifting away.

Comments: I do like this Clynelish, however i kinda miss the specific Clynelish profile with its waxiness
