A 1972 vintage Clynelish released as part of Diageo's Rare Malts series. Despite spending 24 years maturing it is still at a whopping cask strength of 61.3%.
(short notes) Colour: light gold. Nose: wow, again, it’s like when you open a beehive (I know, maybe you never did that but that’s how it smells – agreed, tasting the Clynelish is safer). Lots of wax and rather light honey. Just superb again. Mouth: extremely waxy again, with lots of honeyed notes and flower jams. So drinkable despite the high alcohol level. Not complicated at all but amazingly enjoyable. Yummy! 91 points.
