Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1998 SV

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.27 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I had a great time hunting treasure with the aroma! Enthusiasm: Nose and finale 4/5 Palate: 3/5
    Whisky n ° 1451
    • Nose
      This nose evolves enormously. Initially intense, it is waxy and caressing with notes of grist. Also a nice fruity type fruit tart that tends to dull. The grain side persists. Then it gets fresher with a hint of acidity (not annoying), on the bright wood evoking the new oak. Finally the toffee appears and takes a nice place.
    • Taste
      Very spicy, it is also generous on juicy fresh fruits. A bit limited in terms of the integration of alcohol.
    • Finish
      The final of the first sip seems superb! At once intense and caressing, it is also saline. The following, strangely give me the excesses related to alcohol that I met in the mouth.

    Note upped from 88 to 89 after opening my bottle, and that could climb up in the future : these lychee liqueur notes are just amazing. It's no complex whisky but the coherency of its profile, and moreover the perfect texture and alcool integration just stack up for an incredibly enjoyable dram, some kind of "refined easiness". Simple pleasures. At 65€, I doubt I'll come accross better value often in the coming days.

  4. Gaija scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Very good, excellent balance. Goes down like nothing. Great for summer !
    • Nose
      Hmmm, lovely. One of the fruitier ones, though the wax is there as well of course. Juicy, fizzy, banana and lemon, acidic pears. Very good.
    • Taste
      Fizzy indeed, like a waxy fruity lemonade. Candied, with the same gentle fruits, the same gentle wax, as well as some clean minerality. Very good, difficult to dislike that.
    • Finish
      Clean, fresh, perfumed.

  5. wisekycourse scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    leather, orange, fruity (green fruits!), oaky, mineral too!
    2nd:
    sweet, almost creamy wax, sweet citrus, rather smoky and iodine in addition to salt that revives spices.
    pastry sweetness.

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The fact that I appreciate Clynelish is no longer a secret. And here it goes tip top in the markers fruit / wax / salt of this distillery. The alcohol is not aggressive, it is balanced, and very greedy. The fruit is more present than wax, unlike some other Clynelish already crossed in the past.
    • Nose
      Typical of Clynelish: on the fruity (apple in foreground, but also yellow plum and plum in the back) and waxy (non-invasive). Slight aniseed notes appear after aeration.
    • Taste
      White and yellow fruit syrup flows in the mouth. It's thick, almost compote. It is rich and greedy. Here the wax is more discreet to leave the beautiful fruit, accompanied nevertheless by saline waves.
    • Finish
      The wax resurfaces suddenly. The leaking flees rather quickly, while the salt continues.
