This dram has a remarkable density of flavours. It is very good but you should not be too sensitive to wood spice. – Rating: 87/100

Without a doubt this is a divisive dram. For me the sulphur is just the right amount to add depth, but your mileage may vary. – Rating: 88/100

Without water this has quite some bite, but a few drops are enough to bring out the best in this clean and crisp dram with that typical light brininess. – Rating: 87/100

The general taste of this whisky is very nice indeed, but there is a spirty edge to it that takes away some of the pleasure.

A very flavourful Clynelish proving that age is not everything for a whisky. I like it considerably better than the 13 yo I tasted yesterday. – Rating: 86/100
