Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1992 HiSp

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points

  1. DramTom scored this whisky 92 points Member Senior

    Very expensive Clynelish but it's rare to find an older single cask these days. Exquisitely pure Clynelish waxier than the 1995-1997 bottles. Doubting between 91 and 92 points but I will give the benefit of the doubt for the extra wax :)
    • Nose
      Huge wax, paraffin, oil, juicy peaches and a mineral touch. Unmistakably Clynelish
    • Taste
      It starts with some citrus (blood orange, grapefruit) before a thick oily waxiness takes over. Then a pinch of salt.
    • Finish
      Very long, on waxes, oils and some lemon.

  2. sagara-kun scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very good. Beautiful balance and complexity.

    With water we are much more mineral in the mouth. On the nose it is more chiseled.
    A very good springbank. Pun intended.
    • Nose
      Light peat. Smoke, ash.
      Citrus, lemon.
      Light eucalyptus. Wax, pencil lead.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is very well integrated and balanced.
      Cold ashes always mainly.
      Wax, fruit wrapped in camphor.
      Encaustic strips.
      Light wood and rolled chocolate.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet finish on wax, smoke, citrus fruits.

    Nice but somewhat restrained nose, great taste, slightly sweetish, powerful, you notice the 50.1%. Alcohol very well integrated. Beautiful long finish that bizzles! Minimal bitter finish. Very good malt, but for € 300 VK no bargain ...
