Expert Senior aphex Note

aphex gave this whisky 91 points

Nose : Another typical Clynelish nose. Wax, varnish, fruits (apple, pear and later a few exotic ones). Ginger, walnuts and mineral notes too.

Mouth : Waxy and zesty. Pepper. And those mineral notes again. A pinch of salt afterwards.

Finish : Long, zesty, spices lingering on the palate and salt on the lips.


Perfect balance for me in this one around its delicious zesty flavour. The nose is great, the mouth is a tad simpler but great too.

Tasting from october 2010.

Color
Old gold
Nose

A few metallic notes and white fruits are what springs to mind first. Apple, grapefruit mainly with a few wafer notes. After a little time in the glass there is whipped cream.

Taste

Very fizzy but also fruity with a little woody bitterness. The white fruits are on the palate with cream and warm light sponge cake. Quite full on the palate with the trademark waxy profile present

Finish

Good medium length and finishing sweet.

Comments

A nice crisp, clean Clynelish.

Clynelish 28y 1982/2011, 53,7%, Malts of Scotland, MoS 11015, 275 bottles
Expressieve fruitige en waxy neus, zo kennen we Clynelish 1982. Het fruit, dat is perzik, peer, banaan, roze pompelmoes, meloen en ananas. Licht tropisch dus na enige tijd. De waxyness dat is smeuïge bijenwas en kaarsvet. Daarnaast is de neus zoet (honing en vanille) en een beetje zilt. Het geheel wordt ondersteund door eik en kruiden (kaneel en zachte peper). Die kruiden zijn prominenter aanwezig dan in andere 1982’ers. Stevig en mondvullend op de tong, fruit en kruiden in perfecte harmonie. Fruit: pompelmoes, limoen en ananas. Kruiden: munt, peper en kaneel. Ook hier zorgt het zilt, de vanille en de eik voor extra complexiteit. Lange verwarmende afdronk, met de honing, citrus en kruiden die de dienst uitmaken. Opnieuw een zeer mooie en mooi gebalanceerde Clynelish. I just love it. 91/100

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Un nez hyper fruité et exotique. J’ai l’impression de humer une corbeille de fruits des îles frais. Du vernis et de la cire d’abeille. Le vernis se développe au fur et à mesure du dram.

Taste

Un flot continu de sirop et de compote de fruits exotiques. Une vraie gourmandise crémeuse.

Finish

Des pointes salées viennent se mélanger au sirop de fruits, toujours bien présent.

Comments

Assez différent des plus jeunes Clynelish. Pas de fumée ici, tout sur les fruits juteux, en sirop et compotés. Un bonbon.

Color
Deep gold
Nose

A lot punchier than the SMOS cask. More green banana. A tad more oak as well although that may be part of the higher strength. A lot of honeydew melon and beeswax (warm and honeyed compared to the sharper oiliness of the SMOS). Walnut liqueur. Apples with cinnamon. Some biscuity notes. Guimauves (the white ones). Great nose.

Taste

Punchy again. Key components are vanilla and grapefruit this time, with some peppery notes. Hints of sweet almonds. Less complex and slightly less convincing than the nose, but still a nice whisky. Lemon zest and a slight coastal edge towards the end.

Finish

Long and elegant, zesty at first but coming back to a fruity sweetness.

 

Comments

For me this is the better Clynelish of the two, especially on the nose, although you could say they're two different kinds of whisky alltogether (this one showing a slightly more 1970's character). A little more expensive though.

Nose

Yep, on the nose it is bulls eye from the start. A Han Solo smirk appears on my face. Very fruity and surprisingly crispy nose with ripe banana, melon, pineapple, gooseberry, lime and some pink grapefruit. Sweet malt and grain cookies. Beeswax, honey and vanilla. The whole is swathed in smoke. Sublime indeed!

Taste

It is creamy, almost buttery, on the palate. Mouthcoating and warming. <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" />Lot of pepper. Bodybuilder. Citrus and vanille lead the pack, followed by the other fruit. The sweetness is damped by a slightly salty touch.

Finish

The finish is wonderfully long and the whisky dies a salty death. I cannot stop smacking my lips.

Comments

This is the kind of whisky you will want to nose for minutes before even contemplating drinking it. Wonderful. Taste wise: ditto. If you have been good, maybe Santa will bring you a bottle.
