Finish : Salty, peppery, fruity, smoky.

Lovely nose.  Leather, fruits, heather

Palate is very nice.  Waxy.  Not as good as the nose.
Finishes nice but wish it would last longer.

Color
Old gold
Nose

Il s'impose directement comme étant à mettre dans la catégorie "séduisant". D'abord, il est typique de Clynelish, avec ce côté cireux reconnaissable entre mille. Ensuite, il propose un mélange bien fruité et gourmand. De la banane verte, de la pomme jaune, de la poire juteuse, de la mirabelle coulante. Ça commence bien cette affaire, ça me plaît beaucoup !

Taste

La patte Clynelish continue sur sa lancée. De la pêche salée, un peu d'amertume fruitée, du sirop de nectarine. Une onctuosité de pâte à papier. L'amertume disparaît dès la seconde gorgée, tandis que la salinité assure sa place dominante.

Finish

Moyenne. La pâte à papier salée se colle au palais, tandis que la pelure de pomme s'installe dans la gorge.

Comments

La réduction ne se sent pas, les 46% sont bien équilibrés. C'est un Clynelish très typique (les amoureux de cette distillerie seront aux anges, les autres passeront leur chemin), cireux, salin, et bien fruité. A moi, ça me parle, j'aime.

Sapiano gave this whisky 87 points

Eben hatte ich zum zweiten Mal im Glas:

Clynelish 23 1991 Wy WID:61981 (unverdünnt)
Nase: Zunächst saure Zitrone, Kräuter, Basilikum, Honig, etwas Menthol, Pfirsich, Wachs. Später auch Limetten und Mineralien. Menthol ist verflogen. Anklänge von Asche.
Geschmack: Kräftiger Antritt, gleich scharf, dann kommt wachsige Süße. Eher Honig statt Karamell. Es bleibt durchweg scharf, aber die Süße kann gut dagegen halten.
Zweiter Schluck: Der Antritt ist deutlich fruchtiger und wachsiger. Pfirsich. Es braucht länger bis die Schärfe kommt. Die Zunge bizzelt ähnlich wie bei Szechuanpfeffer. Erinnerungen an eine China Reise werden wach.
Dritter Schluck: Irgenendwie wässriger aber nicht weniger scharf. Das Wachs ist noch da.
Abgang: Wachs, Karamell, Ingwer, Zunge brennt noch mehrere Sekunden, Speiseröhre ist lange warm, immernoch etwas Karamell im Mund, lang, aber nicht sehr lang.
Fazit: Ich hatte ihn irgendwie nicht so scharf beim ersten Schluck in Erinnerung.

Color
Jonquiripe corn
Nose

Beginnt frisch minzig mit Andeutungen von Vanille und Citrus; sehr verschlossen. Nach einiger Standzeit kommen leichte Vanillenoten, helle Früchte und etwas Malz dazu, immer noch ganz zart. Eventuell ein Hauch von Rauch? Erwärmt wird die Nase etwas kräftiger und süßer, Vanille und rote Fruchtbonbons, dazu eine Ahnung von Birnen. Etwas florales schwebt darüber.

Taste

Kräftiger Antritt aber immer noch zarte Aromen. Lediglich etwas zuckriger Honig und Minze sind zu finden. Erwärmt entwickeln sich auch Noten dunklen Karamells und etwas saure Noten am Gaumen.

Finish

Im recht kurzen Abgang bleibt die Süße nur kurz, der Malt klingt minzig aus. Ein wenig Eiche begleitet den Abgang, aber auch nur sehr dezent, dafür scheint eine metallische Bitterkeit vorhanden zu sein.

Comments

Insgesamt geschmacklich nicht schlecht aber doch sehr dünn, beinahe wässrig, sowohl vom Mundgefühl als auch von den Aromen. Irgendwie ist da nichts. Außerdem stört das Zuckerwasserartige im Geschmack, erinnert an billige Blends.‎

Notes aus einer Blindverkostung. 

Ich bin verwirrt. Einer der schlechtesten Single-Malts, die mir bislang untergekommen sind, auch eine zweite Verkostung hat hier kein anderes Bild ergeben. Aufgrund der dünnen Aromen und dem metallischen Gefühl hätte ich auf einen sechsjährigen Clynelish getippt, und mit dem Tip und der Wertung war ich nicht allein (50 Personen gaben ihm im Schnitt 6,38 von 10 Punkten). Die extrem hohen Wertungen sind für mich unverständlich, aber Geschmäcker sind zum Glück verschieden. Nur wo war das, was hier (gut oder schlecht) geschmeckt hat?

Gruß von hier...
