Clynelish 20 yo 1995 Gleann Mor #11308 53.9%

I love these Clynelishes. Classic elements of flints and minerals, paraffin wax, clean clay pots, rubbed lime, fresh cut green fruit and juicy sap. This one however has a marked ex-bourbon character with caramelized sugar, brittle, sweet wood and vanilla pods. Nice creaminess. On the tongue find white pepper, hot flints, hot minerals and quenched metal. Much sharper and evocative here than the nose suggests. As usual great whisky. 88 pts

Clynelish 21 yo 1995 Signatory #11228 55.7%

Again same archetype but a more austere take. This is crystalline, precise and angular. Razor mineral sharpness against rubbed graphite, granite, touches of petrol, and waxy uncut fruit. On the palate it’s blazing minerals, honey, hot wax, hot sand, acid, liquefied resins, even a touch medicinal too. In a way less breadth but instead a lustrous mineral character. 90 pts
