Farbe: Sonnen­licht

Nase: Altes Schiffstau, Leder, Wachs und cremige Vanille. Aber auch alter Papp­karton, Limonen und eine eher dezente Würze. Grüne Aromen von Stachel­beeren, Avocados und wildem Honig komplet­tieren die Nase.

Geschmack: Weich und cremig! Grape­fruit, Limonen, Salz, Leder, Papp­karton und Noten von Blei. Hin zum Finish immer domi­nan­terer Kräu­ter­ein­fluss mit herbem harziges Holz und einer Euka­lyp­tus­fri­sche.

Finish: Relativ lang – zu Beginn noch recht bitter gehalten (Kräuter, Euka­lyptus und Holz), bevor eine Likör-Zuckersüße einsetzt.

88 Punkte (Nase: 91 / Geschmack: 89 / Finish: 85)

Don't add water because it will loose that special note. 

Think the nose is the best part, has a verry short after taste.

Profil typique de Clynelish au nez : cireux et malté avec ici beaucoup de profondeur. Idem en bouche,

Enthousiasme 3/5

Wonderfull nose, candy citrus fruits and coastal wax that continues on the palate & finish along with subtle herbal notes.

Give it some time. Once it opens up it's a delight, better than the '95s or the 1997's in my opinion...

Nice nose, a bit spirit at first but never too much. Mellow and flowery. Nice on the palate with a short but sweet finish. This nice sample makes me want more. Rather yummy if you ask me.

Clynelish 21 yo 1992
(51,6%, Cadenhead Small Batch 2014, bourbon hogsheads, 792 btl.)

Nose: powerful, even a bit spirity and closed at first. More open after a while, with almonds and lemons, a bit of orange honey and green apple peelings. Sweet lime juice. Vanilla cake. A very slight coastal side, as well as hints of chalk and waxed paper. In the background also echoes of dried herbs. Nicely balanced and increasingly complex. Mouth: oily mouthfeel, clean, very citrusy, mixed with waxy notes. Medium sweet with hints of vanilla and lime candy. Sweet oak. Then the herbal side returns, alongside peppery notes and a delicate earthiness. Finish: long, drier, with a slightly bitter edge and lots of citrus.

Simply a great Clynelish. The sweet touches and rounded waxy notes make it very seductive. Around € 110.

Score: 90/100

Nose: Vanila, citrus, Citrus drops, fruits like banana and pineaple. Some honey. Oak is there but not dominationg in any way. A light peat smoke.
Taste: Citrus mixed with ising sugar, vanilla, some creme brulee crust, honney. A bit of spice like clove. Fruits. Say hello to bananas and pears. Light peat smoke mixed with maritime notes.
Finish: Medium long. The swetness and fruits fades out and leave som spices and a light pleasent bittterness to linger for a relatively short while.Nice balance overall.

Color
Pale straw
Nose

Quite grassy. Chalk. Limestone. Salt. Wax. An austere fruitiness - white flesh peaches, pears. Light herbalness. A little smoky/peaty and earthy. Fruitiness increases with time - more citrus.

Taste

Nicely waxy. Raw clover honey. Salty and a little peaty/earthy. Very clean. Less fruit than on the nose but some apples in the background. 

Finish

Long, and herbal. A bit too drying after a while.

Comments

The waxy, smoky, earthy combination reminds me of some Brora from the early 1980s.
