Jonquiripe corn
Nose

The nose is creamy and round with loads of fruit. Stewed pears, grapefruit, passion fruit, a hint of green banana and sugared lemon slices. Beeswax. Fir honey makes it succulent. All very typical and oh so good.

Taste

Wonderfully sweet and succulent on the palate. Almost fatty, in fact. All the fruit returns, but in a wonderful marmalade. Not a lot of oak or spices, but that does not make it any less good. On the contrary. A lot more citrus (grapefruit, lemon) than the nose promised. Even quite zesty. Delicious!

Finish

Nice long and warm finish that, despite the mildly drying effect, remains fruity until the last moment.

Comments

Absolutely one of the best Clynelish 1997. Was about 85 EUR, but long gone, of course. Darn.

  • Nez : Waxy à mort. De la poire, une lointaine iode, de la pomme, du miel, de la mirabelle.
  • Bouche : Pomme et poire, du vernis. Ca grandit en bouche et c’est vachement bon.
  • Verdict : Un Clynelish ‘’wam bam boum’’ très reconnaissable. Un nez extraordinaire, qui transporte. Il manque juste les frissons.
