Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Clynelish 2000 Review

19th January 2017

Review of Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Clynelish 2000 by Murray Cohen.

Gordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Clynelish 2000 ReviewGordon & MacPhail Connoisseurs Choice Clynelish 2000 was matured in Refill sherry casks and bottled in 2015 at 46% ABV.

The Gordon & MacPhail ‘Connoisseurs Choice’ range was launched in the mid-1960s’. Until this time, many of the whiskies the range featured would not have been available as single malt. Today, Connoisseurs Choice retains this exclusive nature with a range of rare and sought after single malts from distilleries throughout Scotland including this Clynelish 2000 Speyside single malt whisky.

Murray Cohen's Tasting Notes:

Colour:  Dark gold.

Nose:  Apple varieties galore impress with cycling sweetness. Cologne, lilacs, a pungent honey-citrus melange including peels evoke the old days where scents were sought after to soothe the senses for pleasure in their own right.

Taste: Medium to full bodied, chewy and syrupy. Dark over-ripened sweet plums land on the palate with a delightful thud.

Finish: Long, the perseverating dark rich plums coalesce with the rising aftertaste generated by folks stomping grapes and the airborne infusion into the mouth that follows.

Comment: Quite a delightful dram with a deep aroma and taste profile.

SMW Score 86.5/100
