Very, very old Clynelish that's also cask strength. A glowing review from Serge Valentin of www.whiskyfun.com below. One only to sell. Bottle shows minor cellar bloom otherwise very good condition.

Other reviews... Colour: gold. Nose: this new one is probably less balanced than the 1971, but also more spectacular even if not really easy-easy. Starts on slightly overripe oranges and passion fruits plus a very distinct muskiness and even hints of foundation cream (or something like that). Also a lot of honey and beeswax, whiffs of peat and a rather unusual floweriness, a little heady. Lily? With water: wowowow! A whole beehive. Stunning. Mouth (neat): yes! Perfect attack, closer to the 1971 in style, that is to say spicy, even a tad oriental (reminds me of some Indian spice mix) and rather peatier than the ‘average’ 1972 Clynelish (but how ‘average’ can a 1972 Clynelish be?) Lemon juice, a certain greenness (rhubarb, sorrel, grass) and the expected waxy/honeyed combo. With water: fruitier, more honeyed, more ‘1972 Clynelish’ but there’s still quite some peat. Maybe not as ‘wowowow’ as on the nose. Say wowow (!Enough with that! -Ed.). Finish: long and firmer, more on pepper and ginger. Definitely spicier and beautifully so. Bitter almonds and pu-erh tea in the aftertaste. Comments: another one that goes in many directions. At least three whiskies in one here! And I did not know that G&M had 1972 Clynelishes…
