    1542) Strathisla, 2006/2019, 13YO, Distillery Labels, Gordon & Macphail
    • Nose
      N-Probably the oldest distillery that housing the soul of Chivas. Milky chocolate over murky honey, with lovely tinge of gentle spiciness just to tease. Gentle with breezes of grassiness. (86/20)
    • Taste
      P- Boiled cherry sweet with abundant of asian spices, return of juicy citrus zest and bitter herbs that check-out with shades of spicy dryness. (85/19)
    • Finish
      F-Medium long, thought unexpected but this lasted a good distance. Marmalade with spices cookies, pounded mints echoing the bitter herbs from palate with sticky notes of feinty-ness. (86/20)

      B/B- 86/20

    An all-round carefree package!

    Flattering fruit aromas in balance with a slight spiciness.

    Delicious, tasty and nicely balanced.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Preserved light fruits, pleasant sweet citrus note, fresh but clear sherry notes (refill barrels?), Green apple, pear, slightly honey-like sweetness, fruit sorbet, light grain note in the background, a little dry, woody vanilla, perhaps a little milk chocolate.

      Great! Round, pleasing and extremely tasty.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Fresh sweet fruits, full fruit basket, a little honey sweetness, very subtle and pleasantly spicy, fresh citrus notes. Again after a while, sweet fruit sorbet, peppered with vanilla and light pieces of wood.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Very pleasant, slightly tart and fresh, a bit spicy with a delicate bitterness. A pleasant light fruity sweetness lingers on the palate for a relatively long time alongside spicy notes.

    Since I got an old Strathisla bottling from G&M at a rarity tasting, I really wanted to try a current and above all affordable bottling.
