  1. whiskyinstitut scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    That's fine, but I miss the typical Clynelish notes. This is also a good example of a whisky that should have been bottled with less alcohol ...
    • Nose
      Citrus notes, a subtle smoky note, mineral, oppressive alcohol, ginger, with water are fuller yellow fruits added, mango, I behave very cautious then the Clynelis sweets
    • Taste
      Strong onset with a lot of yellow fruit, again mango, effervescent powder, citrus, mineral, water does it very well and also makes the fruit more present here, with water already creamy
    • Finish
      Here again light smoke, mineral, yellow fruits, oak, no bitterness,

    Very nice classic Clynelish, quite on the austere side. If you like mineraly white wine you will love this one! 
    • Nose
      Classic Clynelish. Apple, tangerine, beeswax, mineral and a pinch of salt. A bit closed.
    • Taste
      Minerals, sweet apples, quite savoury. The wax is more on the background but it's still there.
    • Finish
      Sweet and sour apples and a bit of salt. Medium long.
