Clynelish 1995 14yo (Daily Dram)
Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Clynelish
This 14 years old Clynelish 1995 is part of the new The Nectar of the Daily Drams range.
Clynelish 14 yo 1995 (46%, Daily Dram 2010)
Nose: typical violet candy and waxy notes. Lemon juice. It shows a few youngish elements, with notes of marshmallow and pear drops. A bit of orange marmalade and tropical fruits. Flinty hints of chalk and limestone. Also some ginger lemonade. Not too complex but very expressive. Mouth: fat and oily attack, again very fruity and sweet. Yellow apples, grapefruit. Very much on fruit candy now. Lemon balm. Almonds. On a second level, there are spicy notes (pepper, hints of curry maybe?), cashew nuts and hints of mocha. Paraffin in the aftertaste. Finish: half sweet, half spicy. Quite long.
A fine dram, that’s for sure. Highly drinkable as well. Around € 60.
ps/ As often these days, a higher strength version (53%) of the same cask is available from The Whisky Agency. These bottlers are sharing most of their casks lately, even though they don’t mention it.
