About this deal

Clynelish 20 yo 1995/2019 (58%, 20 rue d’Anjou, Signatory Vintage for la Maison du Whisky, refill sherry butt, cask #2158, 574 bottles) - 241219 Equinox & Solstice 10 yo 2010/2021 'Candlekitty' (48.5%, Decadent Drinks, summer edition, first fill barrels, 973 bottles) - 210921 There are horrors beyond life's edge that we do not suspect, and once in a while man's evil prying calls them just within our range.” This one needs a little time and a healthy splash of water to reveal all it has to offer. Too harsh and bitter on the palate when sipped neat or with just a few drops of Adam's ale.

Clynelish 19 yo 1995/2015 (57.8%, The Single Malts of Scotland, hogshead, cask #932013, 254 bottles) - 051115If you like Lovecraft's fiction, I recommend taking a look at Supernatural Horror in Literature. It's a magnificent essay. Clynelish 24 yo 1996/2020 (54.9%, Whisky Nerds, bourbon hogshead, cask #WN001, 282 bottles) - 250521- by Angus - 090422 On the nose I get mandarin and fruits in general. On the palate it's crisp, quite a bit oak and little bit of peppery fell. Finish is medium lond with nice creamy feel to it. Clynelish 17 yo 1997/2015 (46%, Signatory Vintage, Un-chillfiltered Collection, casks #4624-4625, 607 bottles) - 090616 Risk worked in close co-operation with DCL and the blending firm of John Walker & Sons and, when the latter was folded into DCL in 1925, Clynelish came too. It closed in the 1930s, but produced small amounts of spirit during the Second World War.

Palate: Predominantly spicy, just like the nose. While there are gentle white chocolate, honey, and stewed apple undercurrents, my mouth is mostly on fire with the sensation of hot, juicy peppers and briny salt. Also a dark tea bitterness. Clynelish 16 yo 1997/2013 'Spiced Chocolate Cup' (46%, Wemyss Malts, hogshead, 302 bottles) - 110913 Highland Single Malt 30 yo 1990/2021 (47.5%, Vintage Bottlers, Secret Series 1, sherry cask, 325 bottles) - 280723 Clynelish 33 yo 1973 '2nd bottling' (54.6%, Prestonfield/Signatory Vintage for LMDW, cask #8913, 439 bottles, +/-2007) - 301222

What next?

Clynelish 18 yo 1996/2015 (55.5%, Signatory Vintage for The Whisky Exchange, refill sherry, cask #6509, 606 bottles) - 110815

Clynelish 25 yo 1995/2021 (53.5%, The Nectar of the Daily Drams, 15th anniversary, refill sherry butt, cask #11238, 501 bottles) - 301222 Taste/Palate: More added citrus peel, floral notes have a greater strength going from flowers in a vase (nose) to freshly blooming outdoor flowers. Salinity and brine ride still along over the tongue. Smoke again peppers the end right before you swallow. Taste: Soft , initial salt from coastal malt , slight smoke , touch of powdered sugar then becoming zesty, juicy oak. Corriander Spice Nose: Some not-unpleasant medicine is tempered with flowers and loads of lemon and lime. Earthy and untamed, and all the better for it. Palate: Right from the start there's a rush of white pepper, cayenne pepper with a load of oak ( too much). The fruits are not well defined. Then there is a lot of hot dried ginger with salt. With air, and making more saliva, it becomes like a lemon/banana cream and the oak is now integrated with a cardamom note (not the soapy style). That was preceded by the strawberry, Macmyra style. The malt is also stronger on the mouth in a good way.

Clynelish 21 yo 1997/2018 (54.7%, Douglas Laing, Xtra Old Particular, hogshead, cask #12781, 309 bottles) - 241219
