Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1960 GM

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.20 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 95 points Connoisseur

    Very intense nose, sherry, wood, full, round interwoven. In the mouth surprisingly strong, a lot of sherry and then a lot of oak, but without being too "rustic". Almost liqueur-like mouthfeel. In the finish then much wood in the form of menthol and a slight to medium bitterness.

  4. Feusi scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Since coming into the nose exactly what you would expect, wood, and the spice of sherry. Dried red berries and raisins in a spicy sweetness, followed by a little bitter and dry wood notes. The long finish is very dry and has wood, timber, wood. That was a very interesting dram, something does not drink it all day, but it is not suitable for all days.

  5. Ras Mazunga scored this whisky 81 points Super Administrator

    Clearly overaged in my opinion.

  6. SomeMalts scored this whisky 88 points Member Senior

    Nice dram, but very much influenced by the wood and this makes it a bit less interesting.
    • Nose
      Old relative subtle nose, oak and thick sherry with spices and red fruit in the back. Some waxyness. No offnotes.
    • Taste
      A quick shot of sweetness followed by some bitterness and a lot of resin.
    • Finish
      Dry, astringent and woody, in the end a bit of sweetness.
