At first fresh and fruity in the nose, but longer exposed to the air, more and more spicy and nutty influences with subtle sweetness. The taste is sweet in combination with spicy and nutty tones.

N- Soft tropical fruits that make you mouth watering, elegantly light notes of pear with the taste of biting on the core and seeds that gives you the a touch of tense sourish bitter taste. Layer of white chocolate, distant floral eucalyptus closing in with sweet malt. cool morning fresh air filled with fresh floral notes.


P- A classic "light but not weak" stuff. Burst of natural juicy sweet, accompany by fresh fruit compote and soft sweet spices, delicate sweet oak and vanilla lurking to provide a dept of fullness. Quality blend, enlightening as it is meant to be.  Did I just says sweet thrice?


F- Medium, soothing and warming, spiced tropical fruit pie.


— at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.

Nose

Deutliche Zitrusnoten, feuchtes Gras, leichte Minznote, grüner Apfel und Vanille 

Taste

Kräftige Vanille, Zitrone, Pink Grapefruit, wieder die Minze und etwas Karamell. Er hinterläßt ein schönes cremiges Mundgefühl. 

Finish

Nicht allzu lang, cremig, zitronig und minzig 

Comments

Es ist ein idealer Dram für laue Sommerabende. Erfrischend fruchtig.

I really enjoyed the wax bomb upon popping this one open, but unfortunately, this waxiness disappears all too quickly ... more of the orchard-type white fruits do open up though.

Nose

 Открытый, сухой, зерно, цветочно-травянистые нотки, лимонная цедра, лимонад, лёгкие медовые тона, минеральные мотивы - мокрые камни, каменная пыль; немного овощей - редис, капуста, дайкон; новая кожгалантерея;

Taste

Мощный, чуть резковатый, сладко-древесный, перечная волна, корка грейпфрута, лимон, леденцы.

Finish

Пряное, сладко-перечное, согревающее, горечь коры, корка грейпфрута.

Comments

Неплохой аромат близкий по стилю к Клайнлиш, но без воска и менее минеральный, вкус/финиш более примитивны, в целом неплохо, но бывали у компас бокса продукты и получше. 

Клайнлиш тут, оказывается, половину бленда составляет, с другой стороны, при цене Энлайнтмента в полтора раза дороже регулярного Клайнлиша 14YO я однозначно выбираю последнего.

Un peu fermé au début, mais je n'ai pu accéder qu'à un fond de sample, peut-être éventé. L'atmosphère est douce en tout cas. En bouche, doux, frais, crémeux. Il a la souplesse d'un blend. De beaux fruits tout en souplesse et en subtilité. Cette expression contient une majorité de Clynelish, et d'une portion non négligeable de Glentauchers, ce qui fait de cette distillerie le fil rouge de la journée, grâce au caviste très compétent qui a choisi les bouteilles pour moi.

Enthousiasme 4/5

Nose

Léger dans sa puissance, il ne pique pas les nasaux mais possède quand même une certaine prestance. Les premières notes volatiles sont fraiches et mentholées. Il y a aussi de la cire.... “bon je ne sais pas si c’est parce que je sais qu’il y a une part de Clynelish ou si c’est vraiment ce que je ressens ...” Il y a ensuite des fruits frais puis après quelques instants des fruits exotiques.

Taste

Bon la première impression c’est que c’est très léger, très aqueux dans son attaque. En milieu de bouche cela monte en régime avec les épices & la cire. (cela manque un petit de punch quand même !). La fin de bouche est gourmande/huileuse sur le toffee, le chocolat avec quelques notes mentholées (After Eight?!?!).... nous glissons tout doucement vers la tarte et le gâteau.

Finish

Moyenne, au départ sur le bois avec quelques très légères épices puis surgit de nulle part des notes gourmandes sur le beurré/brioché et la vanille.... très agréable.

Comments

Un joli Blended Malt qui n’est pas exceptionnel mais qui fait plus que le job. J’ai apprécié sa finale gourmande qui en redemande. Qu’est ce que cela aurait donné avec un peu plus de puissance ? Je ne sais pas mais je reste curieux !

As i like the floral and almost minty character of Clynelish a lot, and this bottling contains a lot of Clynelish like Compass Box bottlings/blends often do, i expected something great.  After pouring the entire bottle into an empty bottle and back 5 times and then wait 6 months, then leave it breathe in the glass for an hour it was finally great with bees wax, fresh grass, flowers, honey.  But at first contact without air, right from the bottle this whisky is terrible and harsh. I suppose it is very young and should be tamed (read: treated roughly).

After taming it is very good, but for that price i got better Clynelish whisky in the past, ready to drink without taming.

Nose

Du miel de pomme, du vernis, du sirop de citron. Des notes végétales se développent vite. Une impression de fraîcheur et de jeunesse.

Taste

Le sirop de citron, fort vanillé et sucré, domine. Une pointe de sève vernie. Simple et classique.

Finish

Du bois astringent éclate en bouche, asséchant celle-ci. Quelques épices douces.

Comments

Un profil très simple, j'aurais cru à un Speysider lambda en fût de Bourbon. Pas mauvais et facile, cet Enlightment ne fait toutefois pas honneur au travail d'assemblage effectué en amont, je trouve. Pas la réalisation la plus séduisante de Compass Box. Un "petit" whisky simple et sympa, toutefois.
