    Clynelish is one of my favorite distilleries so it's nice to try another one this evening. This one distilled in 1995 while the previous Clynelish tonight was distilled in 1982. Let's see how it tastes.

    Nose starts with raisins, leather and salted dark chocolate fudge followed by strawberry jam, oranges, and dark brown sugar.

    The palate carries on where the nose left off and adds more salt and then adds cinnamon sugar.

    Finishes off with a dash of sweet pepper, then some salt followed by some oak, and then cinnamon at the end.

    A sherried whisky indeed. Had I tasted this whisky blind, I never would've guessed it to be a Clynelish. But who cares, because this whisky is absolutely gorgeous.
    • Nose
      Classic dirty sherry with chestnuts, pinewood and burlap. Coffee, mocha and soy make an appearance. Finally a bit more sweeter with rum soaked raising, but also oranges. Lots of subtleties here, but I can't find any Clynelish characteristics here.
    • Taste
      Sherried and woody with exotic spices. Then forest fruits, brown sugar and chocolate with a bit of citrus and a slight salty quality.
    • Finish
      Black pepper, bitter wood and a hint of smoke. Very long.

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Already, I'm quite fond of whiskys matured in sherry casks. But when I meet one that does not hide the profile of the distillery (which is often the case), which is good and more complex; there I (almost) an erection.
    • Nose
      The color of this whisky already announced ... the color (well OK, it was easy): the sherry imprint is well marked. Gingerbread, caramel, brown sugar, hazelnut, mocha, blackcurrant. But also a little paraffin (the famous '' waxy '' sometimes present at Clynelish). A mini iodine breeze when you inhale the dram for a long time; but we must go and get her, that one. After aeration, a pungent vegetal freshness.
    • Taste
      Exotic spices first, followed by a sweet-salty mix. The sweetness is obviously due to the maturation in sherry casks: brown sugar, stewed black fruits, milk chocolate. The salt probably betrays the coastal style of Clynelish. On the other hand, I do not detect any more waxy notes here.
    • Finish
      Long. An alcoholic kick is revealed when you swallow. The iodized smoke here is more present. A little bitterness woody tip the tip of the nose. Salt lasts a long time on the tongue.
