Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1996 Sb

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.19 points

  1. Zinni scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Because the data were identical, I was sure that it was the same bottling as BaseID 172849 ... unfortunately I don't have anything left to compare ... but in my memory the 'japanwhisky' is a bit fruity and rounder. I like it very much!
    • Nose
      Wonderfully clean (refill?) Bourbon nose, surprisingly fruity (fully ripe yellow plums) for a Clynelish, after a while in the glass the typical waxiness slowly emerges, not highly complex but very pleasant.
    • Taste
      Sweet, yellow-fruity, creamy and lively.
    • Finish
      Warm and long with a pleasant woodiness.

    I believe this is a cask split between: Nerds, Art.
    Wax and grease meets tropical fruits.
    Soft creamy, Sweet sweetened fruits, vanilla, maple syrup.
    Slightly alcoholic in the mouth, fruity, oak, some whole grain bread, oily,very pleasant......awesome!

    Great clynelish with apples and pears. With a little water, it loses its complexity, but it becomes much more drinkable

  6. Suevia scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Very good, classic bourbon-cask-matured whisky with bright yellow fruits, zesty and very quaffable, swims well.
