Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 SV

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.18 points

  1. sengaia scored this whisky 65 points Expert Junior

    Rotten eggs on the nose, and alcohol, and not much else. I would not guess this is Clynelish. Taste is the same story. It's not a pleasant whisky to drink. With some time and water it gets less bad, but never good. Every few years I have to re-learn that Clynelish from a bourbon barrel can be bought blind without tasting, but not so with sherry casks.

    Save your money and get a similarly aged Clynelish from a (refill) bourbon barrel instead.

    • Nose
      60 60
      Orange jam, cloves, cooked cherries, cocktail cherries (perfume, wax, paraffin), brine, wet burnt wood, stale flower water. Not at all pleasant.

      Phew. Much better, but immensely hard to ignore the nose when tasting. Barley and cane sugar come through first, then brine, hints of leather, then tobacco. Lastly, the wet embers join in. Alas.
    • Finish
      70 70
      A bit short, and the tastes that linger are not the preferable ones. This one should have been bottled years earlier.
