Of the Clynelish's, which I had so far in the glass, this makes here its origin with the typical waxy smell the most honor. At the very beginning fruity scents dominate. After a few minutes of ventilation, however, the smell of freshly waxed shoes flows through the nose very clearly, a good while later comes some freshly printed magazine, then again appear fresh red fruit - most likely cherry and blackcurrant; The delicious potpourri of long-drawn rum-pot fruits is now in for strong, followed by warm malty notes. After a while, you can finally recognize fresh floral scents. Then finally he can wander on the tongue:
Odd that all the dark reds are now turning into bright fruits. Since I like them but in principle, it wonders me, but when it comes to enjoyment no reduction. Peach, apple and pear come to my mind. Only then, when the fruitiness can be faded out a little, the beautiful waxiness is back. Now only without the new leather shoes, but temporarily reminiscent of warm flickering beeswax candles. The already very comfortable mood gets on it by an extra fad on it. Likewise, some cappuccino and light chocolate provide a sense of well-being. Gradually, some malt (which, with its light sweetness that it had shown in the nose, can not defy the rather dry overall impression on the palate) and very pleasant oak tones with only a little bit of bitter berry, round off the delicious taste experience and thus guide the finish on:
Here, however, is the only downside for me to notice this great Malts. Unfortunately, the aromas, which just brought the nasal and oral mucous membranes into rapture, farewell far too quickly and can, except for some oak and the delicate bitter note, here no more points to collect for this whisky. At best, and with good will medium, more time is the reverberation unfortunately not granted.
But the last point can not take the Clynelish his great performance, at most a half evil base point -> 92 points he gets from me for his strong and brennereitypische variety of flavors.
Addendum: The Clynelish water does not necessarily need water to develop in the nose and on the palate. But a few drops make almost all impressions clearer and stronger.
