Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 DD

10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.07 points

  1. Jaquet scored this whisky 87 points Member Senior

    Nose:
    typical violet candy and waxy notes. Lemon juice. It shows a few youngish elements, with notes of marshmallow and pear drops. A bit of orange marmalade and tropical fruits. Flinty hints of chalk and limestone. Also some ginger lemonade. Not too complex but very expressive.

    Mouth:
    fat and oily attack, again very fruity and sweet. Yellow apples, grapefruit. Very much on fruit candy now. Lemon balm. Almonds. On a second level, there are spicy notes (pepper, hints of curry maybe?), cashew nuts and hints of mocha. Paraffin in the aftertaste.

    Finish:
    half sweet, half spicy. Quite long.

    A fine dram, that’s for sure. Highly drinkable as well. Around € 60. (30 March 2010)

    Score: 87/100 (Ruben/WhiskyNotes)

    It's nice but lacks the waxiness that makes a great Clynelish great.
    • Nose

      Vanilla, lime, limestone, honey and caramel.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Sweet lime, vanilla, caramel, tangerine, honey and cocoa. A maltiness in the back which turns into cardboard when adding a drop of water: Don't!
    • Finish
      85 85
      Vanilla, caramel, sweet lime, chocolate cookie, pepper and smoke.

  4. Calmar scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    A pleasant spring mole.
    • Nose
      Fresh, mineral, drying stones after the rain under the bright spring sun, lemon, dried fruits, dried apricots, dried kumquats, papaya, sweet cotton wool, freshly mown grass.
    • Taste
      Compote of lemon, orange, dried apricots and ginger, a little oak, burnt sugar - do not say that it strikes a variety of components, but in general it is very bad, combined.
    • Finish
      Delicate ginger on a light sweet background of dried apricots and papaya, a little mango.

  7. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very distinctive fruity whisky, full flavor. Is there a (certainly not disturbing) sharp edge, which if desired can be suppressed with only a few drops of water. Pretty long finish.
    • Nose
      Fruity, citrus / orange peel, lemon in background. Also some salty and spicy, cinnamon.
    • Taste
      Powerful, somewhat sharp / peppery, but also fruity: Orange (zest). Full taste, spicy.
      After a few drops of water: Much less sharp, now full of fruity.
    • Finish
      Medium to long, powerful and spicy. Again citrus / orange peel.

  10. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    The 46% give the taste a very good attack, very nice. Little to powerful nose, but I can live with that.
    • Nose
      Powerful to the nose, tingling nose feeling. Orange zest and that's it, I can't feel anything else, it's little to powerful for me.
    • Taste
      Powerful and strong, good spicy attack, fresh and fruity. Orange zest and nectarines.
    • Finish
      Long finish with spicy notes.
