Whisky Reviews for Clynelish 1995 SV

13 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.50 points

  1. DrinkingWhisky scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Lovely stuff! Thought it was a Ben Nevis, mainly because of the sulphur. Old Clynelish did cross my mind though... Tasted during a blind tasting competition in May/June 2017.  
    • Nose
      Sulphur - but I like it! Dark tones; sherried, prunes, tobacco, gunpowder, dark chocolate. Lighter (tropical) fruits on the background: mango, pear; later on more lighter -buttery - tones. Nose stays prickly due to the fairly high ABV. 
    • Taste
      Oh wow! Lovely full flavour! Tropical fruit with lovely sherry tones. A perfect marriage! A wedding in a pine forest. Yup, pine. Spicy as well (nugmet, cinnamon, hint of ginger), mango, passion fruit, rum raisins. And a whiff of eucalyptus. 
    • Finish
      Spiciness lingering on together with the eucalyptus. Turning a wee bit sour at the very end though. 

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Blind tasting. The initial dirty impression then turning creamy made me put my bets on Ben Nevis. 
    • Nose
      First rubber balloons, shortly. Then peach, apple, yellow raisin, crême brûlée and a little malt. Water makes it really creamy and releases honey, with no trace of the initial sulphur.
    • Taste
      Caramel, apple, malt and peach. Water brings out some wax.
    • Finish
      Apple, caramel, peach, wax and a little hazelnut.

  3. Sandman scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Blind tasted during ProefOlympics 2017.
    • Nose
      Sulfur, chocolate, prunes, grapefruit, overripe bananas, honey, red grapes, leather, mango, pear and peach.
    • Taste
      Chocolate, coconut, raisins, licorice, grapefruit, orange, cinnamon, red grapes, tobacco, hints of sea salt and honey.
    • Finish
      Medium-long, dry, grapefruit, tropical fruit, licorice and a touch of sea salt.

  4. wisekycourse scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    On the nose, relative sweetness with lemon, vanilla, cream and a little smoke!
    On the palate, we start with fruity sweetness (slightly caramelized citrus, creamy vanilla (heavy on the palate!) And smoked wood!
    In the end, medium to long enough, on a succession of fine scents, and return of cold ashes, the chimney of the morning!
    A dram where sweetness and viscosity have marked me the most, a whisky typed smoked as we imagine, soft and austere!

    Tasted it blind during PO2017 (may 2017)

    Very nice, full & sweet. 
    • Nose
      Sweet, vanilla, leathery, some salt, tropical fruits, citrus, cocos, creamy, then some smoke and sulphur, gunpowder

      At first the ABV kicks in, then it softens down. Vanilla, peach, a little smoke, wood, chocolate, cocos and a some pepper
