Whisky Reviews for Strathclyde 1980 DT

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.20 points

  1. WhiskyLovingPianist scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    N: Another Strath for me today after [finally] correctly identifying one in a blind tasting at the Strathisla distillery. This XXV is yeasty, hot, woody, peppery and lively and water doesn’t penetrate it. The sherry influence isn’t huge either, if it is a sherry cask at all - just says ‘Oak cask’.
    T: Lots of bitter tannins. Water however brings out greener woody notes and some cream into the finish.
    F: Short, dry, deep sour/bitter with more green sticks.
    C: I've been preferring the younger Strath’s around 7-13yo [which is unprecedented among any of the other grains], but his however is still very good.

    This is very good grain whisky. Not the most complex, but I like it a lot.
    • Nose
      Clean and fresh. Of couse the usual pencil shavings. Also alcoholic and oakiness. Some grassiness.
    • Taste
      Waxy and oily. Vanilla and rum. Light honey and some lemon. Pineapple as well.
    • Finish
      Long and sweet. Slightly spicy of nutmeg and white pepper.
