Just poured a Clynelish 14yo and it's great. Very creamy.
The almost full bottle was a gift from Bachess who didn't like it. Very generous to give it to me, thanks for that Bachess.
I also have a sample of the DE ready for tasting.

Kinda sad there is no banner on the main page for this tasting... :cry:
Not to mention the special live tasting page.

I'm still thankful though. :angel: :thumbsup:


Clynelish DE 15 yo 1992 Oloroso finish 46%
Clearly related to the 14yo. But with a quiet a lot of chocolate and some truffles too.

Because I had only a wee sample of the De it was gone before I could write proper notes.
I remember it has a lot of chocolate mainly in the taste. I was also pleasantly suprised by the truffles that I could smell together with some walnuts.
Another whisky I quiet like.

The ob's seem to be very different from the ib's I've had. In these I don't taste any salt.

Ok, so I'm a bit late. But I really wanted to take my time with this one, and give it a good go. Many thanks to Gilles Deleuze for the sample!! :D :D

Clynelish 14yo, 46%, 1992/2007, SMOS Cask #1607

Glass: SMWS

Nose: Some salt, sweet bourbon like notes (vanilla), also I'm finding this a bit floral, which also reminds me of bourbon.

Palate: Oily and sweet, coats the palate well. A nice mix of vanilla and it's a tad buttery as well.

Finish: Some salt comes through in the finish, but it remains sweet with a whisp of smoke towards the end.

Comment: Overall, a very nice dram, and a good example from this distillery. Unfortunately I have nothing else here to compare this one too, but I really enjoyed it.
