Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 SV

33 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.34 points

  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Saulecker, full, fat, yet velvety, noble, far too fast all! Thank you for the gift, and because gift -> also no Preisgefasel of me.
    • Nose
      1000 times old wood stairs (wax, old wood, furniture polish), dust dry fruit notes, dried apricot, raisins, as if you had ground the stuff to powder, a pinch of salt ... with a little water it gets juicy-fruity-sweet, to brown sugar, molasses, later cocoa
    • Taste
      the first drop of the sample bottle is reminiscent of brandy beans ... from the glass then dark chocolate, a lot of cocoa, oak plank on the mouth, a little walnut ... bitter-sweet, pleasantly velvety-dry in the mouth, there rises internally again a touch of furniture polish (or shoe polish?) in the nose, if you chew it for a long time
    • Finish
      long, warm, dry, cocoa, black pepper ... and there is also a dark-tart-fruity memory, black currant / blackberry, but only very lightly, very far back on the tongue, towards bitter

  2. ASWhisky scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Yes, I 'm in Heaven
    • Nose
      sehr reife und intensive Nase, weich, rund und alt,  schon in der Nase fühlt man das Fass und den alten Sherry, herb und süß eine gute Kombination, macht Lust ihn zu probieren, sonnenreife Aprikose und Rosinen, etwas Salz mit dem Flashback an Austern und Sommer, süß wie eine französische Aprikosen Tarte.
    • Taste
      mein Mund ist schon vom Geruch feucht, kühler  edler Antritt, erwärmt sich erst langsam an Gaumen und Zunge, nussig herb, erst nach dem Erwärmen öffnen sich die Aromen, die süßen französischen Aprikosen weich auf der Tarte mit Marmelade glasiert, das herbe Fass, die Sherrynote permanent im Hintergrund, ein tolles Fass sehr edel und schöne Kombinationen im Wechsel, richtig gut und im alten Stil, der Whisky ist da, das Fass stark und der Sherry spielt eine schöne weiche Rolle. klasse
    • Finish
      in langer Erinnerung bleibt ein herb süßes Fass das edel daher kommt .

  3. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    A wonderful drop. Madness.
    • Nose
      "Dusty" it hits at the beginning. Dusty and aged with dignity, like an old cherrywood secretary. Behind it intense fruity. Dark fruit, somewhat exotic and intense sherry, creamy and backed with a mixture of spices, caramel, herbs (or mulled wine sweets) and leather, bound in milk chocolate. Intensive.
    • Taste
      Again, intense fruity. Dark fruit, orange marmalade, sherry, mulled wine and caramel. Behind it again herbs and spices, leather, some oak, polish and tobacco. The alcohol gives the dram strength and intensity, but is very well integrated.
    • Finish
      Long and lingering. Espresso, chocolate, orange zest and sherry.

  4. dram-drinker scored this whisky 94 points Moderator

    This is really a fantastic cask - all well balanced with lots of aromas and perfect level of woodiness and sweetness. We have a winner!
    • Nose
      Heavy, sweet, dried fruits, plums, prunes, dates, but also apricots, cooked oranges, brown sugar,  and very good notes of oak wood - fantastic!
    • Taste
      Punchy, very oily and creamy, great notes of oak wood, truck loads of dried fruits, sweet and sticky, some toffee, hints of fresh citrus fruits such as oranges - excellent!
    • Finish
      Long and warm, fruity and spicy, nutmeg, pepper, still a good sweetness

  5. schero scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Refill Sherry at its best. Very nice interaction between Clynelish notes and the sherry influence.
    • Nose
      Right up front are the waxy notes of Clynelis, even chewy candies are directly noticeable here, followed by sherry, cocoa powder, old wall unit, tobacco, raisins, grapefruit
    • Taste
      Oily onset, then some citrus freshness, slightly peppery, creamy and oily without finish, almost waxy, cocoa and some raisins, wet tobacco
    • Finish
      Sherrysüße, again tobacco and cocoa, very light citrus notes, hardly bitterness

  6. Archer scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Wow, a whisky that has a lot to tell. A terrific single cask.
    • Nose
      Uh, a very intense nose, dark and sherry-shaped. But in no way overloaded, but "noble", "time-honored" and matured in wisdom. Dark berries full, deep red ripe grapes, raisins, dates, a leather set from the 19th century. The sweetness of the fruits is not intrusive, but is beautifully captured by the leather and oak flavors. A hint of cinnamon and brown sugar comes, beeswax (of course) as well.
    • Taste
      Intensive cocoa and chocolate notes at the beginning. Mon Cherie - taste without the bitterness of dark chocolate. Strong in the approach, oily, velvety, a lot of old oak (but without bitterness), biscuits with orange gel filling. Wild berries. As such, the alcohol is only warming, perfectly integrated. Candle wax and brown sugar. After the first sip, the beeswax aroma is intensified in the nose. Remains long, very long silky and oily on the tongue. Almost like molasses, the whisky dresses the mouth. Slowly then show fine herbs, which mix beautifully with the dark berries.
    • Finish
      Long with a lot of sherry on the tongue, pleasant oak, cocoa and milk chocolate.

  8. mothers_finest did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    -Blindverkostung-

    Color copper red. Goes under the X-ray scanner into brownish.

    From the nose I had typed out of the bottle on a port wine finish (maybe influenced by the slightly brownish color).
    Spicy, dark fruits .... well let's leave that ...

    He then smells much fruity from the glass. Now I would rather tap on sherry keg. Cooling nose, oak is there, but also a bit biting. Cask strength!

    This is not a young savage ...
    On the palate, then pretty sweet, prickles on the tongue. Jop - Sherryfass and Cask Strength are already logged in! High proportion of oak, which in turn speaks for a smooth age in the European Oloroso. Maybe it's too fruity for PX ... but it's always sherry. Even tap full maturation and single cask.

    Dark chocolate, sherry, seasoning - aaah this seasoning on my cheeks is already awesome!
    Now join oranges, even a small bitterness, or orange peel to it and the finish a pleasant wooden character. After 2-3 minutes then a bit Mon Cheri Piedmont cherry ..

    I like it!

    Land becomes tame quickly with water. The spiciness then decreases a lot. I prefer him pure, knowing that he probably has around 55 turns.

    The age I guess 19 years.
    Distillery is always hard, guess what, and tell Benriach Speyside.

    Corso_theRed captured the dram in a very good description

  10. Corso_theRed scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This
    must’ve been an amazingly active cask indeed. All-in-all a great sherry malt,
    if only it was a little less tannic on the palate. But no matter… I enjoyed it
    immensely. This is part of new series of CS-Collection releases this year. Look
    out for Clynelish and Glenlivet in particular. Thumbs up Signatory!
    • Nose
      Immediately
      assertive. Full of raisins, prunes, and melted toffee. The alcohol is
      noticeable, but it dissipates quickly. Although it’s somewhat “harsher” – more raw
      – on the nose, this Clynelish is somewhat reminiscent of the 1963 Macallan I
      reviewed some months before. After a while there is umami as well. Beef bouillon
      and juniper ham! With even MORE air this turns nutty and adds a touch of
      cinnamon.
    • Taste
      There
      it is, for the first time Clynelish comes through! Not nearly as sweet on the
      palate as the nose suggests. Salt chips, quite tannic, and then the Clynelishesque
      waxiness. The bees are strong with this one! Interplays of bitter-sweet and
      sour-tannic freshness… walking the thin line of being over-infused with cask
      influence and letting the distillery character shine through just long enough!
    • Finish
      Medium-long
      and drying. Salivating, tannic, a full on prunes and raisins all the way down
      your throat.
