Strathisla 1970/2011 Gordon & MacPhail

Despite of slightly lacking ABV punch this is a brilliant whisky with lots of sherried goodness and an outstanding finish. – Rating: 88/100

Strathisla 1965/2011 Gordon & Macphail

February 29, 2012

The rather overwhelming sherry does not quite manage to cover the traces of the decades in this very old malt. Lots of fruit meets lots of wood. A sherry monster wielding a huge wooden sledge hammer. – Rating: 86/100

An excellent lightly sherried malt that nonchalantly manages to do the splits between complexity and ease of drinking. – Score: 87/100

The terrific sherry nose is almost matched by the very complex palate. But 43% ABV just a little too weak fo this malt. Rather dry but not overly woody for its high age. – Rating: 88/100
