Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 MoS

- I am not a lover of heavily sherried Clynelish, the profile is swamped with this offering.
- Nice but it lacks balance, too much happening at the front of the palate which makes it a little rough.
I immediately thought of germlines but this is a sherry monster and the prunes, coffee, dark fruits are all there in the mix.
There is also cococola, and shoe polish.
Reminds me of Glendronach Parlaiment a little but much rougher.
There is dark and milk chocolate, with caramel cream and chocolate cake.
Long, and creamy but powerful with it.
- Do not be fooled by
the initial whiff of rubber. It evaporates quickly to allow a very nice
The nose shows quite
a bit of rubber at first, if you ask me. Not so nice. It is so dominant that I
have a hard time detecting any fruit. With effort some plums and oranges
emerge. Hint of espresso. Beeswax? Oh, wait. The rubber disperses to reveal
more sherry. Aniseed. Cough candy. Yes, it recovers nicely. Pineapple on the
grill. Candied sugar. New leather. Tiger balm. Thyme. It has a strange herbal
side, but it works.
The attack is fairly
spicy and mildly oily. Cloves, cinnamon and aniseed again. The fruit is very
clear now. Plums, sultanas, Seville oranges. Cold coffee. Whipped cream. Mild salty
lining, even. It keeps improving.
The medium long
finish on sherry is a bit dry.
