Expert Senior lachaineduwhisky Note

Premier nez très fruité, sur la pomme et la poire en sirop. Un peu de vanille pour agrémenter. De la menthe, des notes végétales. Un rien de toffee. En bouche, plus austère que prévu, intégration de l'alcool perfectible. Finale un peu cireuse. Avec de l'eau, aaaaaah. Vous reprendrez bien un peu de fruits au nez, monsieur ? Avec plaisir ! L'alcool s'est tu et une certaine douceur apparaît. En avalant, des épices douces qui cèdent le pas à de beaux fruits frais dans la finale, de la pêche, notamment.

Enthousiasme 4/5

n: nicely fruity and slightly beeswaxy, very mouth watering and fresh.
    as for fruit we got lemons and mandarins.  it becomes more coastal the
    longer you let it breathe but the fruity side is always there. some peaches were
    thrown in when I didn´t look. and there is a hint of icecream wafers (vanilla)
    very nice!
t:  wow, lovely fruity attack with some additional apricots and even more peaches.
    a little beeswax, vanilla and a little honey. hints of candied ginger.
f:  medium, slightly gingery, still fruity. slightly cardboardy in the very end
    and that is the only flaw of this whisky
comments: recommended, very good price for what you get (but don´t expect
                   too much complexity in this one.

Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Refreshingly sour. Lemon rind, wax, some heather and a hint of peat. A minute later the fruit comes to the foreground: rhubarb, apples, apricots. A salty and mineral grassiness provides the profile with backbone and power. It's a lively whisky and a textbook Clynelish with its unctuous complexity. After a while it gets maltier and sweeter, with touches of marzipan. It's already very accessible and does not need water.

Taste

Excellent. Malty, fruity, sour and peaty. Sour dough with sea salt, lemon slices, freshly drawn ale, heather and baked apples with sultanas and brandy. The mixture of vanilla, apple, mango and grassy flavors one can find while eating a cherimoya. A great full texture, extremely drinkable. The strength is perfect and the development reaches wonderfully wide over the whole palate.

Finish

Long, refreshing, mineral. Vanilla custard with grated lemon rind, a delicious bitterness and a pinch of salt.

Comments

A wonderful, well-matured Clynelish with a typical profile. One of the most refreshing malts you can find.

Nose

Cireux, pomme verte fraîche, quelques gouttes citrique. Légère fraîcheur herbacée.

Taste

Pomme acidulée, quelques agrumes piquants, chicorée (et ça c'est étonnant !) qui disparaît vite, et de la cire de bougie.

Finish

Courte. Une sécheresse fruitée s'installe. Quelques épices douces. La pomme et des notes herbacées toujours présentes.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Boum! Des fruits a profusion: pommes, poires, coings, en compotes et en gelées, avec une légère infusion de plantes aromatiques. Un verger au printemps: fleurs d'oranger, de pommier, de cerisier... Puis la peau de pamplemousse et la reglisse envahissent l'espace olfactif. Le tout fondu dans la cire d'abeille.

Taste

Moins cireux qu'attendu, mais huileux et gras. Très parfumé. Floral (rose, pivoine, fleur de cerisier), fruité ( orange, mangue, pamplemousse rose), gourmand ( une vraie ruche!), délicatement malte et torréfié ( cafe au lait, chocolat au lait).

Finish

Finale sur un cocktail, rose, orange et grenadine. Longue, délicate et voluptueuse. Des accents torréfiés également, mais qui ne prennent pas le pas sur la cire fruitee.

Comments

Excellent, surtout dans cette gamme de prix. Il a cependant un côté fragile en ce qui concerne certains arômes et certaines saveurs, notamment floraux, qui se dissipent très vite.
