    Clynelish 1972 - 2000 (28year) 57.3%

    N: polish, lemon pledge, rust, it’s estery like a Jamaican rum. beeswax, honeysuckle, caramel corn, salted caramel ice cream. Ripe banana and brown butter ghee.

    P: buttery, sweet beeswax, honeysuckle flowers, tropical with mangos, loads of melon (honeydew/cantaloupe) and Manuka honey. Not a super thick mouthfeel, but great flavours. Wonderful palate.

    F: Wax, sweetness countered by dry oak spice. More ripe banana. Medium long with lots of wax and honey.

    93/100

    Notes: As I’ve slowly drank this bottle down, it’s oxidized and opened up beautifully. It was much more closed off when I first opened it. So a year and a half (give or take) really worked wonders. Its not perfect, and it’s not the best dram I’ve ever had, but that doesn’t make it any less special. It’s not always just the dram itself that is memorable but the memories you make along with it.

    I found this bottle on the shelf of a new liquor store in Alberta, Canada in 2017 for $300Cad. It somehow managed to avoid purchase for 17 years after it was bottled. This bottle has been poured to celebrate new friends, birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, etc. It’s a special dram, tied to special moments.
