Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1982 SS

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.84 points

  1. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Phantanic nose, beautiful palate and a very neat finish. A very delicious, full of character Clynelish. Sauteuer, but the complexity and harmony are great.
    But he really needs some water to play his full class.
    • Nose
      93 93
      Expressive, nuanced, complex, dense. Eucalyptus, thyme. Next to it a nice warm, ripe yellow fruit and beeswax, honey, very deep. Lemon balm and many floral notes. A hint of phenolic.
      With water: the typical rich Clynelish fruitiness (Mirabelle, Reneclauden, Orange) comes up high, fresher, rose petals, flowery, lavender, dense. Complex.
      The oak lightens in the background. Great nose!
    • Taste
      92 92
      Harmonious, round, somewhat phenolic and old cupboard. Behind it a nice lush yellow fruitiness, vanilla, velvety. Medium-density (could tolerate a little more bum). Complex, concentrated.
      With water: pure silk, honey and yellow fruit full, plus OBF. Amazingly, in volume increases, becomes much fruity, fuller, more intense and also clearer. Elegant. The aromas from the nose come again. Concentrated and dense.
    • Finish
      89 89
      Fine, many spices (Piement, cloves, vanilla), getting dry, now the long barrel bearing shows clearly. Slightly drying.
      With water: warming, more fruit, less spices, honey, round, elegant, medium-long, elegant and fine. Becomes drier and more kräutriger behind.
