Nez cire, noix, orange confite. La bouche confirme les aromes du nez avec de l’amertume en plus. Finale longue, puissante, salée et amère.

Atypique mais pas mon profil, la bouche est moins gourmande que le nez.

Tasting Notes from Mark Watt (WM Cadenhead):

Toffee, dry sherry, dried oranges, soya sauce, plums and quite meaty. Rich sherry, blackcurrants, light cayene pepper and poached pears. Very chewy. Red fruits, marzipan, soft soot and quite oily.

Nose

Sweet chestnuts and sherry at first nosing with hints of sulphur. Quite indefinite and changing a lot. Caramel pudding, toffee, cherry jam, molasses … just to mention a few aromas. Pleasant but far from being excellent.

Taste

Powerful with a strange taste. Starts oily sweet, then getting dryer with notes of chestnuts, bark mulch, toffee, liquorice and leather. Indefinite again, as already suggested by the nose. 

Finish

Medium long on notes of bark mulch, leaving a dry and velvety feeling on the tongue behind. Strong unsweetened tea.

Comments

A strange Clynelish, showing no distillery character at all.

Superbe Clynelish, au nez terriblement plaisant. Très équilibré, le côté sherry sait se faire discret mais apporte tout son fruité au dram. Tout est en finesse, basta le demonstratif, vive la subtilité . J`adore ce whisky, rien à dire. Tout y est , les épices , le fruit, la sève, la cire (bien que discrète par rapport au profil habituel) du mineral/salin et une petite touche fermière sexy... Agréable , fun , drinkable. Topissime.

Quite dirty nose (definitely not a nosing-whisky), but the excellent and typical taste compensates.

Nose

Waw ! Massepain, vanille, très sucré et pâtissier. Des amandes grillées, du miel.

Taste

Des frissons, ho oui ! Une vague de mélange de sucre caramélisé salé, un bonbon au poivre par la suite. Mais est-ce vraiment un Clynelish ? Le profil ne ressemble pas à un Clynelish standard en tout cas.

Finish

Du sel saupoudre les lèvres, une vague boisée envahit la gorge. Le tout enrobé de miel.

Comments

Une très belle complexité, tout en rondeur malgré les vagues salées et poivrées. Un Clynelish très différent de ceux que j'ai déjà bus, mais excellent !

Avec de l'eau (il n'en avait pas besoin, mais j'ai essayé quand même) : Pas de changement au niveau du nez, par contre la bouche devient astringente et sûre, beurk ! Ce Clynelish craint l'eau, pire qu'un Mogwaï ! A éviter.
