Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1967 RWD

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 95.83 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 100 points Moderator

    This bottling meets - no, even exceeds - all my highest expectations! Just excellent!

    I quickly compared against some other finest Strathisla bottlings from G&M such as the 1955 (40%), the 1964 (43%), the 1965 (46%) and also the 1967 (50%). I think it's the 100proof that makes the difference here as all the flavors come over with a very high intensity. One that comes probably closest is the Strathisla 1965 40yo bottling from big market with 55% abv.

    On the other hand this Samaroli bottling is creamy, sticky and woody like an old Macallan (I just tasted a Macallan 1939 recently).

    First time I rate the maximum! 100 points!
    • Nose
      Fresh and intense sherry wood, dried fruits, raisins, dates, figs, whiffs of new leather couch, even hints of rubber and bubble gum, then again more wood notes, pine wood, brown sugar, molasses, also hints of citrus fruits, cooked oranges, and finally also hints of toffee - Fantastic!
    • Taste
      Wow, punchy, oily, thick, creamy, sweet and candy, very very nice notes of sherry wood, then of course the dried fruits are all back again but also the citrus fruits - Superb!
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm and smooth, more citrus fruits like oranges and also hints of espresso coming up - Great!

    Tasting notes by Serge Valentin

    Strathisla 1967/1986 (57%, Duthie for Samaroli, Sherry wood, 360 bottles) Colour: full amber. Nose: this one starts heavier but not lumpish, with a rather fresh sherry (roasted nuts, milk chocolate, praline and sultanas). Nice notes of old rum, triple-sec. It’s more and more on praline and freshly roasted coffee beans but also dried figs and bananas. The balance is perfect and there’s no vinous and/or sulphury notes whatsoever here and no meatiness either. Heavy ‘soft’ sherry, I’d say. Mouth: very nervous attack, woodier than the 30 yo and more on varnish and eucalyptus as well as crystallised oranges. Lots of candy sugar, liquorice and salt (it’s saltier than the 1976). Truly concentrated, almost thick, fat, also with more tannins than the 1976 – it’s a little ‘mordant’. Long and coating finish, with all these notes of candy sugar and oranges but also the eucalyptus that’s back (cough drops). Concentrated indeed, just as excellent as the 1976, but not really better, for it’s really fatter. Same rating then, 90 points.

    Sherry wood Bottle No. 127/360 Samaroli-Brescia Vintage in light brown label - Full proof - Sherry wood - Cork drive with gold capsule This is a chance to purchase several times But, what if I had Strathisla swallowed up by Dark sherry? I thought, I had many opportunities for prices that I could not go one step again 1967 Strathisla! But, at nosing, there is no metabolic body at all drinking cola at the waist 120 cm over of that cottage. Attach is unbelievable smoothness. From Morinaga Cocoa, did you have such smoothness as when you first received Cocoa of Van Houten (VAN HOUTEN)? It is reminiscent of the pleasure of the childhood era. A little accent of feeling Kinba (Kimura) is also nice. Ultimate duet of syrry of sophisticated sherry and ripe fruit which can not be obtained even if aging is longer or shorter than it is long. But even though there is grace, the place without gorgeous is the nice place of Strathisla. In Finish, while eating crackers and biscuits of in-flight service, there is no nuance like getting black juice of old ripe apples. But, there is no funny lingering finish. Such a trick is unique to Strathisla. In my little Strathisla history, it is Big Bang which is completely BEST 3! Strathisla 1937/1971, 34yo, GM for Edward Giaccone http://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010?blog_tag_id=ajLaix5cfKkG There is a dark sherry Strathisla far beyond & 2! Macallan? Laphroaig? Glenfarclas? That's good. But for me, Strathisla is the best Aqua Vitae who has led me to "Whisky never again escapes heaven and hell"! https://whisky2010.usukeba.com/u/whisky2010/1fyharsgg27vff
