Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1971 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.00 points

  1. Jeep51 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    An old classic Clynelish, but who will complain. Austere and chiselled, it is mainly marked by citrus fruits, ginger and wax. A very successful whisky is certain, but that might not please everyone.
    • Nose
      Sharp, really tense, chiseled on citrus fruits (lemon and tangerine in the head), gunflint and ginger. With a little airing, it becomes a little softer, slightly waxy with fruits that are more exotic (passion fruit) but remains well marked by ginger, grapefruit. A light peat far away? Perhaps.
    • Taste
      Woh! It's really austere. The wood is present in attack with notes of pepper and ginger very marked, as well as a chalky side. The wax appears in the middle of the mouth to stop leaving. Old furniture, encaustic and some fruits of passion.
    • Finish
      Long, rather dry on wax, ginger and white pepper.

    N: so`n nice smoky nose, something attractive mufs, stable, some hay with layers of dark yellow fruit underneath
    T: Practice that yellow fruit is good in the taste, slightly creamy, tasty fat taste and nice and sweet
    F: nice and long, brings nice balance between nose and taste. Remains also some smoke and a nice bitterness
