Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1972
11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.10 points
- Alcohol prominent on the nose. Behind it peaches, yellow plums, mangosteens, pineapple and mangos appear. Utterly lucious, ripe, almost dripping.
The taste is resembles the nose, with quite a strong grip and warming on the tongue and throat, and it takes a looooooooooong time going down predominantly with some ripe pineapples appearing when chewing. (If you like ripe pineapple, check out Glenlossie 1997 FR cask 6766). Oily.Wood kicks in quite a long time after the fruits and the alcohol have been washed away from my tongue.
With water, this bad fruity boy becomes quite a fruity softie (with yellow honey melons appearing). Whereas I prefer the nose with water, I prefer drinking it without.From a sample.
- Tasted in parallel with the WTO DL 71 # 5055. The nose is a little less noble, but the mouth is damn racy. it's a draw.
Lemon candy nose. Apricot. Medicinal. A lot of eucalyptus. Really very well integrated. Light mineral sober.
There is also a slight buttery side, almost toasted. Great.
Mouth very fruity. Citrus. Yellow fruits. honeydew Mineral that stands out. It is really very balanced level aromas. Slightly floral on white flowers. A bit of alcohol but the beast ...
Final super long honey on lemon, acacia.
- F: medium gold N: Fruit and cereals, no (!) Alcohol, seems closed G: Wow - Fruit and cereals without details - bulky, oily body - warm alcohol - gets hot, it definitely needs water. Sensitive natures could be scared here. A: long, alcoholic, needs water + H2O: water and more water: strong development, the alcohol-blocked aromas emerge: fresh citrus: oranges / nectarines, vanilla, aromatic wood (not: woody), grassy, tea, anise?
- WITH WATER
Flowery and fresh cut wood, it is it seems even thicker now which I put down to the Clynelish trademark waxiness. I also get fruit gums and fruit zest.
The finish is massive but I think it needs water to enjoy it properly and not just a few drops either.
Honey, melon,wax,shoe polish,citrus.
Mouth coating, viscous on almonds, lemon and it is quite drying.
Huge but the alcohol burn is prickly.
