Nose

Ce nez évolue énormément.

Initialement intense, il est cireux et caressant avec des notes de grist. Egalement un joli fruité type tarte aux fruits qui a tendance à s'émousser. Le côté céréales persiste, lui.

Ensuite, il gagne en fraîcheur avec une pointe d'acidité (pas gênante), sur le bois vif évoquant le chêne neuf.

Enfin le toffee apparaît et prend une belle place.

Taste

Très épicé, il est aussi généreux sur les fruits frais juteux. Un peu limite au niveau de l'intégration de l'alcool.

Finish

La finale de la première gorgée m'apparaît superbe ! A la fois intense et caressante, elle est aussi saline. Les suivantes, étrangement me redonnent les petits excès liés à l'alcool que j'ai rencontrés en bouche.

Comments

J'ai passé un beau moment de chasse aux trésors avec les arômes !

Enthousiasme : Nez et finale 4/5

Bouche : 3/5


Whisky n°1451

Note upped from 88 to 89 after opening my bottle, and that could climb up in the future : these lychee liqueur notes are just amazing. It's no complex whisky but the coherency of its profile, and moreover the perfect texture and alcool integration just stack up for an incredibly enjoyable dram, some kind of "refined easiness". Simple pleasures. At 65€, I doubt I'll come accross better value often in the rest of my life.

Nose

Hmmm, lovely. One of the fruitier ones, though the wax is there as well of course. Juicy, fizzy, banana and lemon, acidic pears. Very good.

Taste

Fizzy indeed, like a waxy fruity lemonade. Candied, with the same gentle fruits, the same gentle wax, as well as some clean minerality. Very good, difficult to dislike that.

Finish

Clean, fresh, perfumed.

Comments

Very good, excellent balance. Goes down like nothing. Great for summer !

Nose

Typique de Clynelish: sur le fruité ( pomme en avant plan, mais aussi de la prune jaune et de la mirabelle à l'arrière) et le cireux (non envahissant). De légères notes anisées apparaissent après aération.

Taste

Du sirop de fruits blancs et jaunes coule en bouche. C'est épais, quasi de la compote. C'est riche et gourmand. Ici la cire se fait plus discrète pour laisser la part belle au fruit, accompagné néanmoins de vagues salines.

Finish

La cire refait surface d'un coup. Le fuit s'enfuit assez rapidement, tandis que le sel perdure.

Comments

Le fait que j'apprécie Clynelish n'est plus un secret. Et ici ça rentre tip top dans les marqueurs fruit/cire/sel de cette distillerie. L'alcool n'agresse pas, c'est équilibré, et bien gourmand. Le fruit est plus présent que la cire, contrairement à certains autres Clynelish déjà croisés par le passé.
