Baby Whiskey Review: Clynelish 2010 Elixir 9 Yr

This very young Clynelish was distilled in 2010 and bottled in 2019 from a barrel (cask #700044) of 242 bottles for Elixir Distiller’s “The Whisky Trail” series. It cost about $90 and is cask strength, at 58.2%.

  • Color: pale gold (0.3)

This is a very young Clynelish but it’s quite nice despite that; it’s certainly got the expected waxiness and mouthfeel, but it’s very tropical/citrus fruits and needs quite a bit of watering.

Rating: 82/100
