Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1996 vW

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.45 points

  1. LDB did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Really delicious Sherry-and-wax nose. Ripe apricots and other garden fruits.

    Mouthfeel is incredibly harmonious, soft and rounded.
    Fruity beeswax instantly covers all cavities in the mouth.

    Leaves a beautifully fruity and balanced aftertaste, with just enough
    savoury notes to avoid being boring.

    Comment: Nose and palate are stunning! Very well done Clynelish.

  3. Archer scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful laid back - Clynelish. Flavors interact very well with each other.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Honey sweet and with the scent of freshly washed linen. Beautiful waxy notes, with hints of peaches and apricots, partially dried. Velvety soft and ingratiating.
    • Taste
      87 87
      In the beginning clearly with the Clynelish DNA: wax, honey, orange, nut. Pleasant proportion of oak, mixes beautifully with the wax and honey notes. Bread dough, caramel, coffee beans. Thick and creamy.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium-long and oily with still high wax content, roasted orange slices and almond paste.

  5. Defeatless scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Nose:

    Mild sherry notes hit at first. But there is the typical beeswax from Clynelish too. There is a hint of fruitiness but also some pencil shavings from the cask. Taste:

    Sweet and a hint of sour. There is a tad sherry note in here, but not much. I think it is fairly balanced. The typical Clynelish hints are underneath some sherry layer. Body:

    Full and creamy

    Finish:

    Medium length. Some sherry, beeswax and hint of oak. A little peppery. Price:

    Very good priced.

    Presentation:

    Sober but decent as always with Van Wees.

  6. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The joys of refill sherry mixes well with Clynelish’s waxy-dense profile. Very harmonious indeed and yet there are surprises lurking behind a corner or two if you take your time with this. Well done and an absolute steel for the price it was released.
    • Nose
      Clynelishesque! Bees and candle wax aplenty, orange liqueurs, and soft subdued oak. A cooling sensation reminds you that there is indeed alcohol in this – I must say, this is typically Refill sherry and absolutely pleasant! Distant whiffs of engine oil or varnish, waxy honey, and bright berries – goose, overripe currant, and grapes perhaps. Dried apricots and pears, a touch of honey dew, and bags of mixed nuts (without the salt) complete the picture. 
    • Taste
      It arrives gently, yet builds up fast to a perfumed one-two punch of cherry and caramel. Lilacs, effervescent hints of vanilla, and honeyed oak. 
    • Finish
      Medium. Its drying now, with herbal tea and peppermint. 

  7. ctu scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very nice balances, but (especially) the finish is slightly thin at 46% ABV.
    • Nose
      Slightly phosphorous sherry. Honey, grape, apricot, waxy apple and orange peel.
    • Taste
      Refined. Candied orange peel, green apple, milk caramel, mint and oak. Ginger and white pepper.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy and fruity.

  8. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    87/88. This one is more typical Clynelish and more obviously sherry-matured than cask 8800 released by WIN before, which had that virgin oak-like trait to it.
    • Nose
      First a bit dirty. Quickly beautifully fruity with dried apricot, caramel, honey, plum, candied orange, curry and a whiff of grass. 
    • Taste
      More honey. Caramel, nuts, liquorice, candied orane, nutmeg and a light woodiness. With a drop of water the peach comes out.
    • Finish
      Toffee, honey, orange, blueberry, hazelnut and gentle spice.

  9. Jean_Dubois scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Very fine whisky for attractive price!

  10. André scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A relatively old clynelish. On a refill sherry butt, which (fortunately) did not leave a heavy mark on the delicate, almost fragile taste. You certainly recognize the light and fruity character. A very nice drink.
