    Apple Cake
    Strathclyde can be found along the river Clyde in Glasgow and was founded in 1927. It’s a Lowland grain distillery that makes up a big part of the famous Long John blend. The distillery has 7 Coffey Stills. Between 1957 and 1975 they also produced the Kinclaith malt, but I digress. There are hardly any official bottlings, but this is a nice release by Claxton’s in their perfume bottles. It matured for no less than 26 years.
    The first thing I notice is that the nose has something umami. How weird! Then I get some lemongrass, garden herbs, marzipan and famer’s butter. Some apple cake in the background. Hint of woodshavings and vanilla custard. Nice, but I’m not yet impressed.
    It is soft and creamy on the palate with sweet notes of marzipan, lemon, vanilla and a whiff of white pepper. Pleasant enough, but still not impressed.
    The finish is medium long, warming and a touch drying and sweet.
    Nice grain, but no more than that. Around 120 EUR. Thanks, Manny!

    A nice grain whisky. Decent price and quality ratio.
    • Nose

      Brown and cane sugar mixed with pencil shavings. It's not just sweet grains also fruit like pineapple and coconut. Oranges with cookiedough and cream.
      In the back dusty and a little bit stale, like walking in an old closed room.
    • Taste
      87 87
      A sweet tropical palate where the rum does it's trick. Very easy to drink at cask strength. Again the brown sugar and also oranges with caramel fudge. Lime and pineapple with a good dose of lemonade.
    • Finish
      85 85
      After the fruity and sweet palate the finish isn't very different, more a average fade out.
