Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1990 IM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.35 points

  1. Ing Tretti scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A good cask, but for my personal taste, I rather prefer the stunning sherry finished Signatory ones >20y. Though, this one here is quite exceptional in it's expression, since you won't find a PX-finished Clynelish easily. 
    • Nose
      Starts off waxy, typically Clynelish. A little harsh and alcoholic, because of the 55% vol.. Once you get used to it, there ist a little trace of sulphur, paired with dried raisins and apricots, accompanied with slight herbal notes.
    • Taste
      Sweetness (of course, it's a PX-finish), a little sour, then Apricots, followed by waxy traces of gooseberries.
    • Finish
      Sparkling tannins, paired with yellow fruits. Slightly sulphuric aftertaste, but I am kind of extremely sensitive to that.
