Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1971 MP

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.29 points

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Orgasmic. Clynelish at the point of culmination.
    • Nose
      I take a first nose and smile all over - am I in whisky heaven? Intensive and extremely fruity (passion fruit and mango). A meadow of flowers with an extra portion of thin honey. Vanilla and hints of new wood.
    • Taste
      Powerful, complex and perfectly balanced. Fruity (multivitamin juice and mirabelle schnapps) with plenty of honey, fudge, even mead and a perfect spicyness (white pepper). So beautiful - I could taste nothing else for the rest of my life.
    • Finish
      Long and warming. Still very tasty without any fault.

  2. sagara-kun scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    It is surprising, the shared cask of JWWW seems to have 1 degree more, whereas one is bottled the same year.
    An explanation ?

    In any case here it is sublime. What fruit!
    • Nose
      92 92
      Powerful and full-bodied nose.
      The fruit is concentrated and abundant. Mango, papaya, guava, some passion fruit. Juicy apricot pulp. A hint of banana.
      Delicate and fragrant flowers. Rose, elderberry.
      Wax, honey, wood and spices. Pepper, bark. Very light eucalyptus which evolves towards camphor with aeration.
    • Taste
      94 94
      In the mouth it is superbly balanced. You don't smell alcohol.
      A full fruit salad. White, yellow and exotic fruits!
      Mango, passion fruit, pineapple, apple, pear, peach, apricot, quince, mirabelle plum.
      Vanilla sugar.
      Wood, wax, lots of honey, nutmeg, pepper.
      Olive oil.
      Very light smoke?
    • Finish
      93 93
      Long finish on concentrated fruit, mainly exotic.
      Nice waxed wood, leather, and light oily peat. Fresh mint.
