Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1990 IM

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.13 points

  1. Jackson05 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    N: Candle wax, rich and decadent, chocolate, carob, dried berries, cantaloupe, Maduro tobacco, old furniture, polish

    P: Wax, dry, leather, dusty wood, chocolate icing, medium to light mouthfeel

    F: Dry, tannins, black tea, dark chocolate, black pepper, medium long on dry, non spicy oak, cocoa.

    Thoughts: Another very solid clynelish, that perhaps doesn’t hit the depths of some I have had. The lighter mouthfeel keeps it from 90.

    Edit: Throughout the bottle, it’s gotten waxier and richer with air time. It’s certainly up to the 90’s now. Even approaching 91 at last tasting.

    Interesting but not typical Clynelish
    • Nose
      89 89
      Spices, teaish notes, black tea, old wooden cabinet, whiffs of leather, nutty, cigar tobacco - not bad
    • Taste
      90 90
      More teaish notes, more black tea, more spices, oak wood, more tobacco, black fruits and berries - pretty good

      Long, warm, spicy
