Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1997 DR

  1. aspa scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    nose
    Then it starts again typical, green apples, citrus fruits, slightly waxy, strong mineral. I like to repeat myself with the notes, the bourbon barrel must be clynelish. With some fresh cookies, stronger orange than usual, light mint and fresh sparkling wine aromas. The alcohol is pleasant, but the nose is quite powerful. Salty, slightly maritime and oily.

    taste
    Oh yeah, there is the wax and the mineral and oily flavors show off. Typical and the consistent continuation of the nose. Oily and maritime, with light oysters and fresh plaited dough next to it. The alcohol is well integrated here, it gives strength but doesn't burn at all.

    Exit
    A clever and salty layer sticks all over the mouth for a long time. Waxy, maritime, slightly mineral. Some oak and very light vanilla, but otherwise rather tart.

    Conclusion
    Bourbon clynelish as it is in the book and I like it very much. In the end for me like the barrel strength 14. I don't understand the rather moderate grades in the WB.
    N-90, T-89, F-89 for straight 89 points.
