I tasted your clynelish 1993 single cask,57% bottle N°195

Nose : Lots of coconut. Tickly sensation. Very fresh. Lemon pulp. Needs a good deal of oxydation. With time, more fruity aromas emerge. Quiet citrussy. Tangerine juice.Pear drop.
Palate : Sherbety, tickling. pear drop again. Quickly develops on spices (pepper). The same freshness as on the nose.
Finish : In the same mood as nose and palate. citrussy and spicy.
Comment : Good balance, not a lot of complexity though. needs to be tamed with a dash of water. And asks to be waited for.

A relaxing dram.

 Tasting Clynelish 1993/2004 (57%, Gordon & MacPhail Reserve for Glu Glu 2000, cask #1993, 282 bottles)

Glu Glu 2000 is an Italian whisky club – funny name, congrats!
Colour: white wine. Nose: starts quite grainy – in a very nice way – with notes of toasted bread, ashes and vanilla crème.
It gets then rather smoky, with notes of hot paraffin and a rather nice sweet’n’sourness with whiffs of Provence herbs (mostly thyme and rosemary) and tepid butter plus traces of menthol.
Not fabulously complex but certainly flawless and very enjoyable. I like it!
Mouth: we have a very, very sweet and playful attack, with something slightly rubbery, pineapple juice and coconut milk, fruit liquors (quite some blue curacao) and marshmallows.
Certainly fruitier and sweeter than the usual Clynelishes, with no smokiness or ‘coastality’ this time but, indeed, a certain waxiness.
Develops on Tia Maria liqueur, Parfait Amour, Turkish delights, dried bitter oranges, with something a little hot on the tongue, and a long, slightly spirity and quite orangey finish. Buono!
84 points.
(and thanks Jean-Marc)
