Clynelish 21 1995 Signatory The Whisky Exchange

Thanks to /u/Saba007 for this sample. When it comes to Clynelish, there are two types of people: Those that enjoy them in ex-sherry casks, and those of you who I assume hunt down neighbourhood pets in order to drink their blood. I kid of course. There are people who love an ex-bourbon Clynelish. I have no issue with them. If anything, they are buying and enjoying whisky… Continue reading Clynelish 21 1995 Signatory The Whisky Exchange

Clynelish 27 1974 Signatory Vintage (Feather’s Review Set #19)

Wait a second, it’s also near my birthday!… a month ago. So as is custom, I dressed up in my favourite clown costume and headed out to the bar. I kid, it’s more of a pub. The Feathers Pub, to be exact. Yes, I finally got around to it again, because it’s my birthday. So this year we started with Clynelish 27 1974 Signatory Vintage. Simple enough,… Continue reading Clynelish 27 1974 Signatory Vintage (Feather’s Review Set #19)

Clynelish 21 1996 The Ultimate

Thank you to /u/throwboats for pouring this sample for me. I recently tried to finish up all of the whiskies I have by reviewing them in pairs. Then my numbers went all funky. None the less, the original idea of reviewing Clynelish 21 1996 The Ultimate was to have it beside another Clynelish. So what do I talk about then? Let’s start with my bias: When I have a… Continue reading Clynelish 21 1996 The Ultimate

Clynelish 15 James MacArthur’s Fine Malt Selection

Thanks to /u/throwboats for pouring me a sample of this dram. Back again with another Rum Cask. For those of you who don’t follow me like I’m made of candy and orgasms, I specifically hunt down rum casks. Part of me thinks that rum casks may have had a bad rap. Why? Well, let’s point out that if they were in Cuba they couldn’t end up being… Continue reading Clynelish 15 James MacArthur’s Fine Malt Selection

Clynelish SMWS 26.117 “Silky smooth sundowner”

Opened this one up for a recent drinking fun time with fellow whisky drinkers. Hey, I’m not the biggest fan of Clynelish when it’s aged in ex-bourbon casks. I prefer it finished in something, as their malt takes to finishes or unique maturation really well. So of course, when I heard about Clynelish SMWS 26.117 “Silky smooth sundowner”, I was interested. It’s aged in Sauternes… Continue reading Clynelish SMWS 26.117 “Silky smooth sundowner”

Clynelish 20 1995 Signatory Cask Strength Collection

Thanks to /u/Boyd86 for this sample. This is a Clynelish that was aged for 20 years, sold at cask strength, and aged in refill sherry casks. The vintage is 1995. It hits all the right buttons on my “consider” list, with an older malt at cask strength from an IB that I like. But first I must try it. And that means I have to find… Continue reading Clynelish 20 1995 Signatory Cask Strength Collection
