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!
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!
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!
Medium long, warm and smooth, more citrus fruits like oranges and also hints of espresso coming up - Great!
