    Nose:

    Very old and complex, huge amounts of wax, honeycombs, then floral and grassy notes often found in such old distillates, an explosion of various fruits, from sweet melons, to ripe apples, an old library, a subtle brush of smoke appears in the background

    Taste:

    very dry, a lot of wet wood, malty, a bit associated with old macallans, honey, wax, the flavor is largely a continuation of the smell, floral,

    Finish:

    long, wooden, dry, barely noticeable whiff of smoke

    Score:

    Incredibly fragrant whisky, you could sniff it for hours looking for new notes, unfortunately the taste lacks power gently, but still maintains a high level - 91/100

    Strathisla 25yo b.1977 GM Queen's silver Jubilee 40% On the nose, A whisky super class, all the attributes of a long aging, dusty side, varnish has furniture. Beautiful fruit stewed, cooked apple, all coated with a beautiful super discreet smoke " The mouth is in the lineage: it stands very well despite the weak ABV, sweet attack, very ripe fruit and stewed, the cooked apple is, the cardamom, other spices and this kind of light veil of smoke who follows us until the end, it is complex I can not say more. It just misses 8/10 degrees more and it would be statospheric for me. It is an old whisky still very very elegant 93/100
