Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1960 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points

  1. ALouis scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    49yo all the same and a beautiful nose To taste once in his life

  2. Dede scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The nose is to die for, but this Strathisla unfortunately spent too much time in my taste. Pity.
    • Nose
      Woody and frankly marked by sherry, with first tons of raisins that are quickly discrete in favor of clementine and blood orange juice, encaustic and precious wood (cedar). It then evolves to tertiary notes of old leather and tobacco. An aristocratic profile of old Speysider sherry.
    • Taste
      The attack does not lack power. This malt is probably old, but it has lost nothing of its grip. The palate, thick, is marked by the astringent bitterness of the tannins. Fortunately its aromatic concentration is sufficient to allow cocoa (bitter of course) and liquorice to express itself against a background of bitter orange marmalade. Some pretty spicy notes also break, especially clove.
    • Finish
      Relatively long, cocoa, astringent and tannic, it vanishes happily on the pleasant freshness of the clove.
