Clynelish 1997 (The Whiskyman)

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: Clynelish

Clynelish 1997 The WhiskymanHere’s a picture of the Clynelish 1997 (a second cask after the Clynelish 1997 bottled last year) with a new Whiskyman label designed by yours truly.

It’s the start of a new series (nicknamed “classic label”) for drams that will bring a smile to your face without breaking the bank: accessible prices but still high quality drinking whiskies.

 

Clynelish 15 yo 1997 (53,5%,
The Whiskyman 2012, refill sherry
hogshead, 180 btl.)

See my tasting notes here. It’s the same whisky. Around € 60.

Score: 89/100

    Very nice label! I wish more bottlers would venture in this direction. I hope to pick up a bottle, since I haven’t been drinking nearly enough Clynelish!

    I’ve tried the 14 year old and enjoyed how well blended it was. It was very mild but complex at the same time.

  • pb: This had some very conflicting tastes. Without ice, I found it almost unbearable (maybe my palate isn't ready for 60% ABV)...but, without ice, there
  • pb: I managed to get my hands on this in the US---it's hardly available here. Easy drinking----hints of sweet caramel, coconut and vanilla. Really opens
  • Tabrulavubeg: The post is more than 3 years old. But I got to buy a bottle of Old Bothwell Cask 2039 today to find that this also was a bottling from the same cask!
