    Color: light white wine

    Wood, vanilla, pear, cinnamon as a first impression. Then a wonderful mixture of lacquer and fruit. Apple and pear peel, gauze bandage, some sea air. Sawdust, barley malt. Indian spices. Nuts.

    Nutty, dry note on the palate, but also sweet and fruity. Old plum, also exotic fruits, cake base.

    Long, warm finish, with cake sweetness.

    Not a spectacular, but a very fine whisky.

    My first Strathisla. A simple dram for every day.
    • Nose
      84 84
      Definetely pear, also lemon and tangerine. Flowers, perfume, wax, mint also nutmeg. A charming nose. It reminds me of the clynelish.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Fresh and fruity, but a little bit thin.
    • Finish
      81 81
      More on the short side. Sweet in the beginning with fruits, honey and malt, followed by spices and oak and then it's gone.

    blind tasting
    Nose: a touch of nothing, wet cardboard, fermented grapefruit, a touch of vanilla after the first sip
    Taste: sweet mouthfeel, then pushes some oak, better than the nose
    Finish: one-dimensional spicy, not too short, rust, slightly bitter
    Conclusion: absolutely not mine, 67/100
