  1. Kensay scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Posh nose, balanced body and a long pleasant aftertaste
    • Nose
      Bright, fruity and sweet. It opens in layers of tropical fruits, ripe sweet peach, light salty smoke, honeycombs and apple pie. Cool and long-playing
    • Taste
      First spiced with spices, then a slight bitterness in oil and slightly dried pine.
    • Finish
      aftertaste envelops in delicate spices in sherry, fruit notes, there is also a bit of oak

    Blind mystery tasting. Myself and the room were generally unimpressed with this. Perhaps a little more time might shift my opinion but it certainly didn't come across as an easy drinker when tried blind. There are better 1995 Clynelishs than this one.
    • Nose
      vegetal, paint stripper, maybe quite old
    • Taste
      flat lemonade; artificial sweetener
    • Finish
      short->medium; heartburn dominates

    Excellent value when compared to the other clynelish indies of this age. Great cask which has worked in harmony with the clynelish distillate.
    • Nose
      93 93
      Stunning! Complex, fruity, discreet sherried notes. Wax is almost the first note I get. Waxed apple peel, perfumed. Japanese quince fruits (aka 'Japonica' - red spring flowers that produce ornamental apple like fruit that cling to the spikey stems rather than hang like apples) Mirabelle plums, tropical fruits, damp wood, tiniest hint of peat smoke, pinch of sulphur, some white pepper, touch of pear, pinch of naptha which lends a savoury machine shop aspect.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Great balance, delicate sweetness, touch of bitter, touch of dryness. Oily, water brings out sweetness perhaps, but I find water adds little to the nose, just helps it to open.
    • Finish
      93 93
      Lingering, fruitness some sherry, some oak, more wax. great length
