Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1997 C&S

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.89 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    First nose very fruity, on the apple and the pear in syrup. A little vanilla to decorate. Mint, vegetal notes. Nothing toffee. In the mouth, more austere than expected, integration of alcohol perfectible. Final a little waxy. With water, aaaaaah. You will take a little fruit in the nose, sir? With pleasure ! The alcohol is silent and a certain sweetness appears. In swallowing, sweet spices that give way to beautiful fresh fruits in the finish, including fishing.

    Enthusiasm 4/5

    n: nicely fruity and slightly beeswaxy, very mouth watering and fresh.
        as for fruit we got lemons and mandarins.  it becomes more coastal the
        longer you let it breathe but the fruity side is always there. some peaches were
        thrown in when I didn´t look. and there is a hint of icecream wafers (vanilla)
        very nice!
    t:  wow, lovely fruity attack with some additional apricots and even more peaches.
        a little beeswax, vanilla and a little honey. hints of candied ginger.
    f:  medium, slightly gingery, still fruity. slightly cardboardy in the very end
        and that is the only flaw of this whisky
    comments: recommended, very good price for what you get (but don´t expect
                       too much complexity in this one.
    89/100

  5. r0back55 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    As for the Hogshead and 17 years is a fairly mild whisky, but well balanced and I had fun drinking it :)
    • Nose
      Delicately fruity, lemon, aromas of glue, smoky notes.
    • Taste
      Oak, vanilla, herbs, honey, a little dried apricots, lemons, peat.
    • Finish
      Medium long, sweet

  7. CST1986 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    A wonderful, well-matured Clynelish
    with a typical profile. One of the most refreshing malts you can
    find.
    • Nose
      Refreshingly sour. Lemon rind, wax,
      some heather and a hint of peat. A minute later the fruit comes to
      the foreground: rhubarb, apples, apricots. A salty and mineral
      grassiness provides the profile with backbone and power. It's a
      lively whisky and a textbook Clynelish with its unctuous complexity.
      After a while it gets maltier and sweeter, with touches of marzipan.
      It's already very accessible and does not need water.
    • Taste
      Excellent. Malty, fruity, sour and peaty. Sour
      dough with sea salt, lemon slices, freshly drawn ale, heather and
      baked apples with sultanas and brandy. The mixture of vanilla, apple,
      mango and grassy flavors one can find while eating a cherimoya. A
      great full texture, extremely drinkable. The strength is perfect and
      the development reaches wonderfully wide over the whole palate.
    • Finish
      Long, refreshing, mineral. Vanilla
      custard with grated lemon rind, a delicious bitterness and a pinch of
      salt.

  8. Bishlouk scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Waxy, fresh green apple, some citric drops. Slight herbaceous freshness.
    • Taste
      Tart apple, some tangy citrus, chicory (and that's amazing!) That disappears quickly, and candle wax.
    • Finish
      Short. A fruity dryness sets in. Some sweet spices. The apple and herbaceous notes always present.

  10. ThS scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Excellent, especially in this price range. However, it has a fragile side with regard to certain aromas and flavors, including floral, which dissipate very quickly.
    • Nose
      Boom! Fruits in abundance: apples, pears, quince, compotes and jellies, with a light infusion of aromatic plants. An orchard in spring: orange blossom, apple blossom, cherry blossom ... Then the grapefruit skin and the licorice invade the olfactory space. All melted in beeswax.
    • Taste
      Less waxy than expected, but oily and greasy. Very fragrant. Floral (rose, peony, cherry blossom), fruity (orange, mango, pink grapefruit), greedy (a real hive!), Delicately malted and roasted (coffee with milk, milk chocolate).
    • Finish
      Final on a cocktail, pink, orange and grenadine. Long, delicate and voluptuous. Roasted accents as well, but which do not take precedence over the fruity wax.
