Whisky Reviews for Strathclyde 1988 SMWS G10.13

- C: I’m a big fan of Strathclyde spirit in sherry. This is de-licious grain, yet it’s credited maturation to a bourbon cask!? Either way, it scores 86. [With thanks to Phil].
- A very straight-forward, but no less tasty for it Strathclyde. Strongly woody, but offering good balance between bakery notes and flavours and cask spicing.
An afternoon in the Bake Off tent. Buttered toast, pastries, croissants and freshly baked turnovers are joined by some homemade fizzy lemonade and hazelnut biscuits. Water adds some dusty aromas and a touch of varnish and glue.
Fresh wood and biscuits. Cut wood planks, balsa and resin merge nicely with gingernut biscuits and cinnamon spicing. The addition of water enhances the nuttiness – hazelnuts and adds vanilla, varnish and glue.
Super long, quite woody and with vanilla and ginger.
- CASK No. G10.13
Old & dignified
Warm butter on banana bread
Price £102.00 Warm butter croissants and buttered popcorn appeared to be the order of the day, alongside thick slices of banana bread and freshly planed wood with a thin layer of runny honey. With time caramel wafers appeared with cinnamon and cloves that began to point heavily towards a well-aged bourbon whiskey. A delicate floral note of geranium developed into poached pears on the palate, only to be joined by custard creams and marzipan whilst deploying a healthy prickle from fresh ginger. Green wood and fine tannins provided a dry balance with a touch of quinine and sugar coated brazil nuts on the finish.
