    Sehr wässrig, starkes unangenehmes brennen. Bisschen Malz und etwas Süße. Sehr flach. Zu jung, um komplexe Aromen zu haben.

    Dünn, kaum irgendwelche Aromen zu erkennen. Und sehr starkes brennen. Man merkt die Jugend, der Whisky hatte keine Zeit, die Aromen der Port Fässer aufzunehmen. Das ist nahezu nichts.

    Außer leichten süßen Note und brennen ist da nichts. Nach 5 Sekunden alles weg.

HunterRomario did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

Aroma:Sladová vůně, hodně do vanilky, vanilkový pudink, dále se přidává květinové aroma, žlutý meloun, jablka, hrušky. Celkově zajímavá vůně. (84 b)
Chuť:Velmi sladká, na ty procenta i překvapivě jemná a opět ji lze jen stěží přirovnat k nějaké známé whisky. Vanilka, slad, vanilková zmrzlina, pudink. (84 b)
Body:84
Shrnutí:Panák číslo 8 na Whisky Festivalu v Radebeulu 2019. Zde jsem šel hlavně po chybějící palírně.

Achany scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

a lot of yellow fruit, some really ripe apples, hints of vanilla, quite some spices, some white pepper, gets a bit malty, sweet bread. some drops of water do not harm as the ABV has a nice punch in this dram. the finish is quite long, sweet and gets spicey at the end. Fine and well done Dram!

Achany scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

wonderful sweet nose, a lot of honey and vanilla, bees wax, hints of coast and sea salt, some spices, a hint of oak, malty and even a bit grassy as well. very easy to drink and enjoy. the finish is all right, could be a bit longer and a bit more intense. Just a really wonderful Clynelish apart from the pricing which has not to be discussed at all.

thick syrup of dark berries, sweet, raisins, mazipan, quite a lot of fruit, develops nicely over in the glas over some time. complex on the palate, some spices kick in, some pepper, finish is all right and the different Aromas mingle and fade away slowly. that is some real treat!

wheatfield scored this whisky 91 points Expert Junior

Copper pour. Nose is pretty big and musty, lots of deeper sherry notes. Mouth is explosive upfront, fruit chutney, fig jam, old pennies, big alcohol punch. German chocolate cake? Hot and long finish. I thought I had this before and didn't enjoy it nearly this much.

wheatfield scored this whisky 94 points Expert Junior

Mahogany pour. Nose is roasted nuts, cooked dark fruits, and some sharp alcohol coming through. Mouth has a bit of bitterness upfront then opens into lots of big, rich darker flavors. Stewed dark fruits (cherries, dates, figs), "rancio", old leather. A touch of menthol on the finish. Long. Pretty freakin great actually.

N- Always like a breezy Laphroaig, the opening of this DL comes with brines, soft resin, eucalyptus smokes and tea-ish with air-dried salted fish undertones. Faint rubber bands and gunpowder comes with plenty of strength at the back with wee dash of milkiness. Ticks on all boxes but appeared hollow at times, vigorous swirling does helps to awaken this slightly lazy 12YO. (87/21)

P- Nicely brine-d, pre-seasoning seafod brouillon, zesty, bitter chocolate and pleasantly dry with full mouth coat. Well behave dried fruit letting the smokes to shines. (89/22)

F- Long, playful prickly wood with rock salts, semi-chewy, puffy smokes with overdose chili powder and a taste of kimchi. (87/22)

B/B- 87/22

Cereal- 1, Fruity- 3, Floral- 1, Peaty- 3, Feinty- 1, Sulphury- 0, Woody- 2, Winery- 2, Spicy- 2

Nase: Süßer, medizinischer Rauch strömt sofort aus dem Glas. Man muss nicht einmal nah an das Glas heran, um die intensiven Noten wahrzunehmen. Mit etwas weniger Abstand sticht der kräftige Alkohol zuerst etwas in der Nase. Gibt man dem Malt jedoch 10-15 Minuten im Glas, verfliegt die anfängliche Schärfe in der Nase und weiter Aromen werden preisgegeben. Da ist nebem dem Rauch auch eine deutliche Vanillenote, Malz, Karamell, ein nasses Tau, Mullbinden, etwas Zitrusfrucht und entfernt zarte rote Frucht. Am ehesten in Richtung Himbeere.

Geschmack: Auch auf der Zunge ist der Malt intensiv süß und zugleich rauchig ohne Ende. Die ölige Textur überrascht mich nach nur knapp sieben Jahren positiv. Ich finde Vanillepudding, Ingwer, Müsli, alte Turnmatte und den für Laphroaig typischen Jodeinfluss. Der Alkohol ist für 60% wirklich gut eingebunden.

Abgang: Medium bis lang mit Getreide, Vanille und ein paar für mich sehr passenden metallischen Noten. Der Rauch hallt noch lange nach.

Still quite a good sipping whisky, This one is more on the woody side and less on the sherry side. I liked the other tried batch better.

    Wine, red fruit, hints of sherry, although this one leans more to the red wine side than to a sherry side. There are some figs and some chocolate in here.
    With some water and time there are some spices showing up.
  • Taste
    85 85
    Sweet and sour arrival. A little touch of red fruit. Some dark spices like garam masala and coriander.
  • Finish
    86 86
    Medium length. A tad bitter. But mainly red fruit, cherry, raspberry and a hint of fig. It all fades away with some wood notes.
