Farbe: Altes Gold mit Kupfer
Nase: Zu Beginn cremig-fett mit Noten von Holzbeize/-politur, Oran­gen, Leder  und Vanille. Alte erdige Ein­drü­cke kom­men hinzu, ebenso Zigar­rena­sche, Farbe, Brenn­nes­seln und ölig-schwarzer Holun­der. Eine tolle Würze beste­hend aus Salz, schwar­zem Pfef­fer und Papri­ka­pul­ver beglei­tet die Aro­men­pa­lette. Klasse und „very old style“!
Geschmack: Hier jetzt eher mit dün­ner Kon­sis­tenz star­tend. Rote Früchte, Blu­to­r­an­gen und lecke­rer Sherry, sal­zig beglei­tet, domi­nie­ren zu Beginn. Jetzt tre­ten Noten von alten Möbeln und Nuss­li­kör hinzu, und der alte Cly­nelish kommt mehr in Fahrt. Wird tro­cke­ner durch auf­kom­men­des Eichen­holz und auch leicht herb, bleibt jedoch immer noch recht dünn.
Finish: Mit­tel­lang – Aro­men von Orange, Kakao und Scho­ko­lade mit Meer­salz sowie etwas Rauch und Asche bil­den das Finish. Gegen Ende immer tro­cke­ner wer­dend mit schwar­zen Tee­aro­men, ange­setz­ten Kräu­tern, Bour­bon­va­nille und alten Sher­ryno­ten, die immer wie­der durch­ste­chen.
Bemer­kung: Ein schö­ner Old-Style-Clynelish, dem lei­der etwas Pepp fehlt, um eine noch höhere Punkt­zahl zu recht­fer­ti­gen.
93 Punkte (Nase: 94 / Geschmack: 92 / Finish: 92)
