Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1983 JW

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.00 points

  1. Schnappsdrossel scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Color: Old Gold

    Outstanding nose, I like the rest as well. Much more resinous than younger vintages.
    • Nose
      At first, there is not much, it seems surprisingly young. 5 minutes later - Clynelish in rough amounts, definitely waxy, beeswax, rape honey, parsley, wet undergrowth, tree sap, freshly sawn softwood, turpentine. Dusty block malt -> Old bottle flavor.
    • Taste
      Bulky and oily (note - 43%!), Much resin, turpentine, less wax; Limes, blockade, peppermint candy.
    • Finish
      Medium length, peppermint and wax, turpentine. Somewhat dry towards the end.

  2. Schmitti77 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Aroma: Soft and fruity butterscotch bright fruits.
    Taste: Berry Oily, fresh and fruity, becoming more complex
    Finish: quite a long mild fruity again.
