Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 Wy

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.56 points

  1. Igitor scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    With a little time in the glass, the nose becomes more voluminous and wonderfully complex. The nose is nice and fruity, although spices also come into play over time. At the end of the smell, the fruits come to the fore again.

    The 46% are well chosen, even if it might be a little more in the mouth. If you had heard 2, 3 percent more of the whisky here, the whisky would have been a bit better.

    The price is quite ambitious considering the age, but overall appropriate for a hogshead and the good barrel selection. The days of inexpensive UAs are unfortunately over.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Multivitamin juice, pineapple, papaya, honey, apricot, orange zest, fig, light rice notes. A wonderful date sweetness with Clynelish-typical beeswax notes hovers over all of this. On the spice side I find curry and a little cardamon
    • Taste
      89 89
      Orange, pineapple, malt, apple and light acidity. The multivitamin juice is quite pronounced.
    • Finish
      90 90
      The finish is medium to long and voluminous. For a really good finish, you need a big sip.

    Nose of bark or bast fabric. Fine and soft notes of flax or hemp, caramel flan. A nice, discreet acid wire. Well, a year and a half ago it would have had a completely different list price. Those times may unfortunately be over.
