Expect a smokey Clynelish referencing Brora at its finest.

This beautiful old Clynelish is part of Silver Seal's new series under the "Whisky is Classical Collection". A tribute to Gaetano Donizetti's comic opera, Elisir d'Amore, it was distilled in 1993 and bottled in 2016. 51.7% Alc./Vol. 259 bottles released.

Other reviews... Do not dream, this is not love potion, the name refers to Donizetti’s well-known opera. Now on second thought, I’ve never tried to put a little Clynelish behind my ears, that may work! Colour: white wine. Nose: dry, austere, mezcaly, mineral, smoky, waxy… It’s a bonfire on the beach, with some tar and some petrol (from the boat). A bone dry Clynelish, it seems, as the colour already suggested. With water: rain water and cut grass. Mouth (neat): immense, peaty (yes!), Brora-ish, peppery, lemony, mineral… No prisoners taken. Elisir d’Amore, but of course. It tends to become a little fizzy and spritzig, though, which is a little less… seductive. With water: lemons come out. Citrons, lemongrass, Thai basil, radish sprouts… Plus a little vanilla and raisins. Welcome back to civilisation. Finish: rather long, rather sweeter. Apple juice, tinned fruits… Reminds me of earlier vintages of Clynelish. Comments: it’s that fizziness that’ll prevent me from going to or above 90. Other than that, mi piace a lot…
