Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1983 DL

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.44 points

  1. peathead scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Initially reasonably typical Clynelish. Some boenwas, sweet fruit, which is also called in the nose. With a few drops of water, he becomes less alcoholic. More fruity, a bit more polish, a little smoky
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, fruity (lychees ??), ginger, pepper. Without water, this is a very thick oily whisky. He comes loose with some water. Clynelish à volonté. Very tasty. Almost no pepper, less ginger too.
    • Finish
      Clear pepper, sweet. With water I taste a little more tannin, but it stays sweet and tingling on the tongue.

    A nice fruity Clynelish. I get orange and a pleasant sweetness, but also a bit salty or coastal, whichever one you want. The palate is very smooth and creamy and slightly dry. Just an allround, nicely balanced whisky. Lovely stuff.
