    Very good Strathisla. Lots of wood so you have to like the profile. I love.

    Starts really great on the nose, very deep, fruity and complex, powerful on the palate but then also overpowered by the sherry cask and the finish is a tad bitter - overall still very good but can't catch up after the nose - water helps

      Truck loads of dried fruits, plums, prune, dates, figs, you name it, acacia honey, brown sugar, molasses, wet pipe tobacco, spices, cloves, xmas spice, deep sherry wood, hints of toasted bread, toffee - superb!
    • Taste
      93 93
      Very very powerful and punchy, creamy, liquorice, subtle sweetness, some dried fruits, espresso, more toasted bread, xmas spice, oaky, little tannic, menthol - very good
    • Finish
      91 91
      Long, warm, more woody, tannic, little drying, bitter almonds - water recommended

    From Whiskyfun,

    Strathisla 35 yo 1967/2003 (54.3%, Gordon & MacPhail for Barmetro, cask #2063, 153 bottles) Colour: deep amber. Nose: superbly sherried, with quite some varnish and wax polish at first nosing, and then oak, and then dried oranges, and then rubber, and then hints of wet stones, and then orange juice, then peonies… This is endless, even if the whole is not overly complex. A sherry monster that’s not clumsy or sweetish but rather sharp, with lots of wood influence. The waxiness grows bigger by the minute, with the rubber being always well here. Enjoyable notes of fresh strawberries, just like in its ancestor, also toffee and coffee fudge. Mouth: big, bold and extremely punchy, very nutty. Walnut and hazelnut liqueurs? Otherwise we have the usual rum, oranges, chestnut honey, toasted cake and chocolate. Let’s be quick: it’s a flawless and tireless old sherry monster with a rather long, nicely dry and minty finish. 90 points.
