Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 DR

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.75 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    The nose is for me much better than the taste. But not a bad dram at all.
    • Nose
      Mix of fresh fruit, honey and nutmeg, sweet barley, also some vanilla,
      delicious!
    • Taste
      Sharp, spicy and salty. Doesn't match with the nose. A little bit
      disappointing.
    • Finish
      Medium, bitterness, a little flat.

  2. Volanne scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A great daily dram, easy to enjoy and dangerously quaffable.

    Tasted blind for whisky-distilleries.info WDTS:http://www.whisky-distilleries.info/WhiskyWDTS/index_EN.shtml
    • Nose
      Seems a little shy at first, but quickly develops to a nice, balanced mix of fresh fruits (mainly yellow prunes), light high grade honey (let’s say orange, the most delicate one), and just a little pencil shavings (elegant wood influence). Jelly beans. Very subtle and complex it is, as far as jelly beans can be.
    • Taste
      Jolly good! More expressive than the nose. Creamy and tasty. Same aromas than on the nose. Pineapple drops. And a slight sooty note.
    • Finish
      Medium long. An invitation to take a second sip.

  3. Jean-Brice scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Not great. Gouted as a blind under the WDTS
    • Nose
      Quince paste, grenadine syrup, spices (anise, cinnamon).
    • Taste
      Alcoholic, fruity (persimmon, red fruits). A big bitterness at the end of the mouth.
    • Finish
      Medium length and slightly astringent

  4. Dr.Nose scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    My review after a blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Nice...Soft sherry notes with warm red fruit. Beyond this, I find the wood influences clearly present also...Even a little bit toasted wood.
    • Taste
      Spicy, powerful with a little sweetness.
    • Finish
      Medium and spicy.
