Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1996 MoS

14 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.83 points

  1. LDB scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Not much typical Clynelian to find, but quite an interesting malt.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Perfumed, intense nose, rump plumage. With H20 it is both more mineral and waxy with more time in the glass.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Peppermint, with very spicy notes of malt and caramel.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Bean sprouts, pepper, faint apricot in the background.

    [March, 2010]  Finally I emptied bottle no. 245 that I bought for 70 Euro in October, 2009.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 82,5.  My notes state an unbalanced dram full of flaws and strange off-notes I do not like (e.g., mossy).

    a monument of a clynelish
    91/100
    • Nose
      the price of whiskylibrary must be a joke, otherwise I wish the bottle will rod on your shelves!
      nose: takes a few moments till the distillery profile appears. it´s not the waxiest of the clynelishs that I could taste so far but it´s there (beeswax) together with a nice sharp minerality. mild butter, apples and pears together with hints of vanilla. is there some peat? yes I think so, but it´s very discreet.
      a little oak after some minutes in the glass.
    • Taste
      quite waxy now, really lots of beeswax, vanilla. very coastal, very clynelish and very good, perhaps a tad too sharp. with a few drops of water it´s becoming even better. it´s rather peppery and I´m not sure whether I can find any fruit on the palate.
      sounds a bit simple but it´s great stuff.
    • Finish
      long, dryer, peppery
