Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1997 AD

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.21 points

  1. Cubey666 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    delightful Clynelish with delicate waxy notes, floral and honey sweetness with toast in the nose, as well some hazelnuts and almonds.

    intense fatty waxy taste and mouthfeel, with a nice long lingering oily lightly drying aftertastes.

    Thanks Norbs for the samples!

    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 283 bottles from cask no. 6510
    Deep gold – just like the missing sunshine. Good beading, suggesting good mouth texture, and a little nose prickle. The initial nose is of French apple tart, with rolling tobacco and sphagnum moss behind; later a trace of sweet shortbread and toasted flaked almonds. Sweet and hot to taste, with a fresh, perfumed aftertaste. The Clynelish characteristic waxiness appears with water, and a fresh floral note (freshly laundered linen). Then a trace of the biscuit note re-emerges. Buttery Jersey cream in the development with a very soft mouthfeel; teeth-coating. An overall sweet taste, with a hint of salt and a lightly spicy finish. An excellent summer’s dram on a wet day!
