Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 2008 vW

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.25 points

  1. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Had this one head-2-head with caskno. 800066, from the same distilation.
    Allthough the difference is only 0,5% in Abv, the 800066 is way more influenced by alcohol, especially in the nose and body. Only in the finish, alcohol starts to work for the 800074, which makes it more smooth and softer than 800066.
    In nose and taste itself, both whisky's are quiet similar.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Sweet, vanilla, flowerish, fruity. Fresh apples and citrus.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Only slightly pungent, pretty full body, sweet, vanilla, honey, caramel. Some fruits as well, like peach.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Pungent and sweet, still some caramel, vanilla, long, a little bitterness now, and still some apples.

    • Nose
      Alcohol, apple and melon.
    • Taste
      Pepper, apple, vanilla and some drop.
    • Finish
      Medium with a lot of pepper

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 84 points Specialist

    A nice whisky but it could have taken a bit more time in the cask. Clearly harsher and less mature than cask 800084.
    • Nose
      A bit harsh in the nose at first. Green apple, vanilla and puke.
    • Taste
      Apple, honey, peach, vanilla and chili pepper.
    • Finish
      Chestnut, caramel, vanilla, honey and apple.

  8. schero scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Not like old Clynelish but that goes in a good direction
    • Nose
      Lemon, mineral, mint, certainly already oak spicy in the nose, the gummy bears of Clynelish are still easy
    • Taste
      Sweet lemon, wild approach with very slight youth, continuous pegging at the tip of the tongue
    • Finish
      Again, very mineral and powerful, the citrus notes outweigh the fruit influences, warming with the gentle pounding

  9. Daan Tje scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

  10. mds51 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A light summer whisky with delicious caramel.
    • Nose
      Light, fruity, delicate citrus notes, a hint of fudge, pineapple
    • Taste
      Fudge, caramel, light citrus, a touch of ginger, to end with pineapple, slightly salty
    • Finish
      Medium. The sweetness fades away gradually a touch of pineapple remains in the mouth.

      The saltiness was in the mouth for almost half an hour.
