Whisky Reviews for Strathmill 15-year-old
4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.37 points
- Malty not very complex, perfectly drinkable though
- Pleasant, saturated, absolutely non-spirituous with a lightly pressed aroma and sweet-creamy taste / finish.
Restrained, wet, the first wave - medicinal herbs, valerian, Thai herring, then the aroma closes, the mineral tones - wet cobblestones, rusty water, a little malt, sandpaper, light creamy notes, lemon.
Powerful, medicinal with sourness, cream, condensed milk, boiled condensed milk, vanilla, grapefruit grains, cream, slightly astringent oak.
Sweet-creamy with spices, ginger, cinnamon, lemon peel, a little oak in the background.
N: Quite a simple one this, bearing in mind all that’s come before. Cereal base, honey, a little citrus and plenty of putty, sponge cake and some sweet [Sauternes?] white wine notes. Sweet cereal>putty in the main. Far easier with water, lemon sponge coming through, a touch of lemonade and sweeter barley sponge.
T: More of the same which is just fine. Quite a kick in the head neat. With water, it leads like a cereal-based Lowland-style malt with cereal putty & heather-honey on the turn.
F: Light savoury-sweet cereal mash. Like on the turn, a cereal putty & heather-honey reprise.
C: An example of a ‘natural’ one that soon became same-y.Scores a D+
