Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1997 SV

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. ottos did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Not much else to add to the good tasting notes that can be found below. A very nice Clynelish (as with most of these vintages) which was great value for money.

  2. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Ordinary whisky for fair ~ 43 €, as usual in this series. No tongue-licking tongue flatterer, but rather gruff, "dirty".
    • Nose
      Honey sweetness and caramel, some citrus and a slight tingling sensation in the nose (mineral water), a bit earthy-musty (and very light smoke?)
    • Taste
      first honey and caramel, then it becomes woodier, some pepper, sweetened coffee, soil, dirty smoke, altogether quite dry in the mouth
    • Finish
      medium-long, pepper, nut and a slightly artificial note (maybe something other than wax?)

    Serge @Whiskyfun: Clynelish 16 yo 1997/2014 (46%, Signatory Vintage, Un-Chillfiltered Collection, hogsheads, casks #12373+12374, 739 bottles)
    Colour: gold. Nose: ah yes. A mineral and earthy Clynelish, better
    polished, more complex, with wax, blonde tobacco, a little camphor and
    then many citrus fruits. Perfect, not much else to add. Mouth: really
    excellent, another example of a small-batch vatting that may be better
    than the individual casks – but that’s pure speculation of course, I
    couldn’t try the casks. Lemon peel, lemon curd, sauvignon blanc,
    limestone, honeydew, lime and all that. Finish: long, clean, chiselled,
    focused. A touch of salt in the aftertaste. Comments: great value – if
    you like Clynelish’s style of course. I’m a fan. SGP:462 – 88 points.

  5. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    sample from Willem
    • Nose
      nuts, citrus - lemon, butter, fruity, some smoke, vanilla, honey and spices 
    • Taste
      starts sweet, wood - pine resin, coffee, some orange, caramel, smoke and there's the Clynelish wax
    • Finish
      medium drying with vanilla, spices, wholemeal bread, citrus and sugared nuts

  7. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    In direct comparison, the 14 YO OB is a bit shy in comparison to this one. The honey is much bigger in this one, whereas it doesn't have the malty and salty touches from that one.

    I also lined it up with some other '97 Clynelish bottlings from the same range (4616, 4619, 12365 and 12375) and found this one to be the spiciest one of the four. It's also smoother than the the ones from the 4... series and not as dirty.Great value-for-money.
    • Nose
      Honey, lime, caramel, vanilla, beeswax, tangerine, cookie dough, young wood, straw and a whiff of smoke.
    • Taste
      Honey, vanilla, lime, caramel, beeswax, straw, spice and a little smoke.
    • Finish
      Honey, toffee, smoke and oaky spice.
