Clynelish 21 yo 1989 / 2010 Whisky Agency 54%

When you get Clynelish, Clynelish gets you. Here’s another luscious Clynelish bursting at the seams with softened beeswax in glowing sunshine, surrounded by meadow flowers and pollen. A picnic, a mineral Riesling, tarte tatin, ripe stonefruit, straw hats, warm earth, grass stains, a touch of lawnmower exhaust and carefree times. As positive as the healthy regard of good friends, and a light to measure all other distilleries by. 91 pts

A different style, richer perhaps and more mature but less innocent. The bourbon oak casts shades of forest floor and woodspice. Though the waxiness is still universally apparent but accosted in all directions by the seductions of hot toffee, leather, tobacco and coconut cream, now it’s not that I don’t appreciate devious stares in my direction. And perhaps it is a road worth travelling after all – wood char, acorns, twiggy undergrowth, patchouli leaf and some burnt clay. Evening wear. 88 pts
