Clynelish - Flora & Fauna, distilled 1982, 57.7%, 0.7l
Eine sehr seltene Abfüllung, insbesondere in der fassstarken
Variante die zwar nicht wie die normale im Holzkistchen kommt,
dafür aber eben fasstark ist was dem Aroma anscheinend nicht
Tasted in Whisky Magazine Issue 12 by Michael Jackson and Jim
Nose: Sweet grass. Lightly peppery/mustardy.
Palate: Creamy maltiness. Big flavours. Peaty. Seaweedy-fruity.
Finish: A fresh, mustardy attack. Some salt, too.
Comment: The most rounded of this Clynelish threesome. The
fuller gold colour suggests more contribution from the
Nose: Excellent complexity with diced carrots adding to the
earthy, salady aroma. Some sweetness but drier than usual.
Palate: Fruity, grapey and beautifully mouthwatering: quite
different from the nose. Brilliant sub-strata of peat runs
throughout and adds a luscious sweetness to compliment the
sultanas and spice.
Finish: Smoky and dries rapidly to allow in a cocoa effect.
Comment: A disarming malt that exudes sheer class.
