CLYNELISH 2000 26.91 'LEMON PICKER IN A BARBOUR JACKET' - THE SCOTCH MALT WHISKY SOCIETY

As promised in the last review here's a younger version from this terrific distillery.
No fuzz, let's just post the facts on this next one...

Clynelish Warehouse A - August 2009 © The Malt Desk
Clynelish 2000 26.91 (08.04.2000/xx.xx.2012) 12yo 'Lemon picker in a Barbour jacket' 60,6%, Refill ex-bourbon hogshead, 301 bottles, The Scotch Malt Whisky Society

Colour is white wine

Nose:
Salt, ozone, lemons for sure, something perfumy, creamy, white fruits, incredibly fresh and zesty along with some cask sweetness, mainly vanillas

Taste:
Citrus in abundance, barley sugar, grape fruit, some ginger and pepper.
Water brings out a salty freshness and new oak. I'm also thinking Lime and Ginger Ale and whisky?... Anyone up for a Scottish Mule?

Another good Clynelish!

85/100!
