Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 14-year-old

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.43 points

  1. ErrHaBe scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    The classic wax crayon. Very pleasant to drink, honey sweetness and waxy aromas initially dominate the aroma and taste, before fresh wood takes over and forms the finish. Patience is also rewarded here with darker, more mature aromas. A nice standard, which - if you like beeswax - you should always have in the closet. But why you have to dye it remains a mystery.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Honey, cereals and a light leather note at the beginning. The whisky has a nice velvety-oily nose, the alcohol is very well integrated. In addition, some fruit in the form of a fresh, ripe plum and a light yeasty note as of fresh bread. And, of course, this beeswax note, which comes with me as a burning candle. Really very pleasant. After a long time, the honey waxiness is stronger and some wood sugar is also noticeable.
    • Taste

      A nice oily mouthfeel is spreading, dark notes and a great honey sweetness dominate the taste in the beginning, also here the alcohol is very well integrated, no burning is noticeable. The honey is darker (forest honey), plus some vegetarian notes, such as freshly cut branches. On the other hand, the taste has little fruit to discover, the sweetness covers everything. After a while, the flavors turn darker and the bees wax becomes saddle soap.
    • Finish
      84 84
      For a 14-year-old a relatively long finish, sweet and covering the mouth. The barrel notes become stronger at the back and finally dominate the finish.
