    Clynelish H2H

    Managers Dram 17 year 1998 61.8% OB WB ID 8173
    Clynelish 1969 12 year 56.9% OB WB ID 10087
    Clynelish 1982 15 year Flora & Fauna 57.7% OB WB ID 3438
    Clynelish 1972 28 year 57.3% cask 14624 Adelphi WB ID 8106

    Managers Dram with this particular bottle there is no use getting only 1cl or even 2cl, this is one of the exceptions where you definitely need to either have a full bottle to play around with or a good sized sample of at least 3cl minimum preferably 4 - 5 cl

    Clynelish
    Neat
    nose

    1 - managers dram 17 year
    As per last notes in 2018 but also coal tar soap just not as powerful as that but same scent, great stuff.

    2 - 1969
    Surprisingly light and creamy, all on pear, green apple & green apple skins with lashings of cream, pastry notes and a hint of brine and the faintest hint of peat and some vanilla.
    Smells like an older style of malt than the managers, which it obviously is.

    3 - ff
    A big cereal note is the first thing that hits you, cream, hint of peat and vanilla,
    Closed not particularly expressive.
    Slightly ashy

    4 - 1972 adelphi
    Same sort of dna as the ff but with a dirty angle, in a good way, coal tar soap, lucozade, brine , pear and apple & white/yellow gummy bears

    Result nose neat
    1- managers 17 95
    2 - 1969 12 year 94
    3 - 1972 adelphi but almost as good as the 69 93
    4 - FF 1982 cs 92

    Palate neat

    1 managers-
    wham, bam thank you mam, holy shit, power/peat and massess of stewed fruit
    More peat than i remember, and zingy, = notes from 2018 - 95

    2 - 1969
    Completely different to the managers, more subtle , not as powerful with a lovely cream note, hints of lime and lemon, much cleaner and sharper but i like the dirty note in the managers
    Reminds me of some of the nest douglas laing brora but sweeter
    excellent 95

    3 ff
    - this is really similar to the 1969 in it’s profile with the cream, lemon and lime angle just not quite as deep and more elegant than either the MD OR THE 1969 and there is more peat, this is approaching an islay dram for the level of peat in here 93

    1972
    Another sweet one but not as refined as the 69 or ff. a little peat or so i thought btt then a wave of spicy peat lashes your tongue and it is really nice, there is a little white fruit, pepper and pastry not as complex as the other 3 92

    Order
    1= managers 95
    1= 1969 95
    2- ff 93
    3 - 1972, 92

    5 drops of water from a pipette

    Nose
    Managers is a little sweeter, parma violet note, marshmallow (pink)
    1969 more cream , more expressive more spirit than md, gummy bears
    Ff no change more distant than than above, possibley a little metallic
    1972 more fruit, plum, rhubarb, gooseberry

    Clear winner

    1 md more going on**
    2 1972
    3 1969 smells younger than md
    4 ff

    Palate

    Md 17 silky at first but then a hand grenade of peat and masses of spice

    1969, so sweet and silky smooth at first but then the peat arrives, not silky now but still great for sure

    Ff - the water has calmed it down and it is like a rougher version of the 12 until the peat assaults your tongue, different, unique almost, very good

    1972 - now this is a lot sweeter with water, less peat now than the other 3 but really tasty, excellent

    Unable to decide
    So try again
    Md, great flavour, so powerful, rips your tongue off, i love it 1
    1969 more cereal, nice peat and spice 2
    Ff so creamy, full of cereals the peat is invasive water has released untapped peat power, jesus christ
    1972 Very nice , more peat, great fruit

    1 md 95
    2 1972 94
    3 ff 93
    4 1969 but more refined than all the others, sweeter just not as powerful 93
