Strathisla 1970/2011 Gordon & MacPhail

by Oliver Klimek on May 23, 2012


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Dark copper
Nose: Prunes, black cherries, hints of balsamic vinegar,  orange zest, caramel, cinnamon.
Palate: Orange zest, dark caramel, jam from mixed dark berries, coffee and tea (yes!), cinnamon, nutmeg and wood tannins.
Finish: Very long, fruity and dry.
Overall: Despite of slightly lacking ABV punch this is a brilliant whisky with lots of sherried goodness and an outstanding finish.

Rating: 88/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
