      Totally different from cask 5894 and 5895, this is full on cooking spices, curry powder. After the initial hit of curry, there's this grassy notes that appear in all three of these Clynelish 1982 MoS. Rocks and minerals, camphor, waxiness of course. Some oranges and sour plums, and red apples as well.
    • Taste
      91 91
      Full burst of citrusy, faint saltiness, rocks and minerals again. Oily and waxy on the tongue, lovely. Lemon and lime, perfect combo. Oranges, with some almond and slight peppery.

      Warm and long, with warm lemon juice, slight saltiness, and waxiness.

    A delicious Clynelish. The nose is excellent, the palate maybe a tad simple but that's nitpicking.
    • Nose
      Wax and paraffin strike first. Then arrive fruits (apple, pear, lemons and hints of tropical ones) and spices (ginger) and lastly mineral notes (hessian). Afterwards coastal notes with seabreeze, seashells.
    • Taste
      Waxy, zesty, peppery and gingery. And those mineral notes again. A pinch of salt afterwards. With water : Even more juicy and salty.
    • Finish
      Long, zesty, spices lingering on the palate and salt on the lips.

    A nice crisp, clean Clynelish.
    • Nose
      A few metallic notes and white fruits are what springs to mind first. Apple, grapefruit mainly with a few wafer notes. After a little time in the glass there is whipped cream.
    • Taste
      Very fizzy but also fruity with a little woody bitterness. The white fruits are on the palate with cream and warm light sponge cake. Quite full on the palate with the trademark waxy profile present
    • Finish
      Good medium length and finishing sweet.

    Clynelish 28y 1982/2011, 53.7%, Malts of Scotland, MoS 11015, 275 bottles
    Expressive fruity and waxy nose, we know Clynelish 1982. The fruit, that is peach, pear, banana, pink grapefruit, melon and pineapple. Light tropical after a while. The waxyness that is smooth beeswax and candle wax. In addition, the nose is sweet (honey and vanilla) and a little salty. The whole is supported by oak and spices (cinnamon and soft pepper). Those herbs are more prominent than in other 1982 people. Firmly and mouth-filling on the tongue, fruit and herbs in perfect harmony. Fruit: grapefruit, lime and pineapple. Herbs: mint, pepper and cinnamon. Here too, the salt, the vanilla and the oak provide extra complexity. Long warming aftertaste, with the honey, citrus and herbs that make up the service. Again a very nice and nicely balanced Clynelish. I just love it. 91/100

  10. Bishlouk scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Quite different from the youngest Clynelish. No smoke here, all about juicy fruit, syrup and stew. A candy.
    • Nose
      A hyper-fruity and exotic nose. I have the impression of smelling a basket of fruits from the fresh islands. Varnish and beeswax. The varnish develops as the dram evolves.
    • Taste
      A continuous stream of syrup and compote of exotic fruits. A real creamy treat.
    • Finish
      Salty spikes come to mix with fruit syrup, always present.
