Tasting Notes by Serge Valentin (Whiskyfun.com): 92 points

Yes that's the retro label.

Colour: light gold.

Nose: this time it’s rather candy sugar that strijes first, then leather and grass. This baby was probably distilled within the same weeks, and yet it’s very different. In a way, it’s straighter, but it’s got a rum-side as well, just more candied, more on brown sugar and more on barley sugar. With water: fresher, more coastal, with even wee touches of porcinis. Otherwise seashells and olive oil.

Mouth (neat): oh no! A stunning earthiness, that’s what I get. Gentian and liquorice plus citrons and sea salt. Pure magic. With water: fabulous. Many herbs, earths, waxes, some olive oil again, some salt, citrons, cider apples… In short, pure Clynelish.

Finish: long, with more raw peated malt, some liquorice, some salt, a slight chalky side and then even more earth. The aftertaste is even earthier and more gentiany.

Comments: these whiskies may be for aficionados only, but I’m one of them and you should too, if I may. Anti-dull.
