Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 DR

11 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.94 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 84 points Connoisseur

    A very young Clynelish. Good as an aperitif, but probably too young for my taste.
    • Nose
      Whiney and yeasty. Juniper berries. White grapes. Grassy, Citric
    • Taste
      Fresh and clean. Lemon and pear. Honey and vanilla. Oaky. Quite chewy as well.
    • Finish
      Medium long. A little spice and liquorice.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not very waxy for a Clynelish of this age (compared it to cask 12793 from Signatory) and not so fruity, but very nutty. Not so complex, but the average score is a bit low in my opinion.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Honey, malt, peanut, tangerine and vanilla.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Honey, pecan, malt, caramel and orange.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Caramel, honey, cashew and orange.

    Single Whiskybase sample
    • Nose
      Fresh laundry. Hot sand. Meadow flowers - clover. Wax. Ripe apples. Some salt. Copper.
    • Taste
      Creamy and sweet, Honey, cereal, wax. Ripe apples and pears. A little smoke.
    • Finish
      Quite long on fruits and creamy sweetness.

  7. Tomh scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Wow, that nose! I love it. Very clean, reminds me of a fresh spring shower (including the lovely smell of blossom, honey and flowers)

    However, the taste lacks a bit of punch.

  10. Sonett scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Nose of white wine, sweet vanilla, honey, herbs and a bit of yeast
    • Taste
      Sweet entry with mild peppery spices, lemon and a very light touch of wood in the background
    • Finish
      Short to medium long without surprises. Very much as the taste
