  1. Jean Ginster scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    impressive for 12 years. Very nicely done.
    • Nose
      typical nose for wine barrel removal.
      fruity, intense, towards dark cherries in alcohol, raisins. Sweet. Vanilla in the background, some furniture polish. Something wax.
      Very harmonious and intense.
    • Taste
      round, sweet and sour, then sweeter. Now comes the oak spice with the fruit. Something tingles on the tongue. Frame mouth. The fruit is more fruit compote, with dark cherry, raisins, some hazelnut and quince. Some citrus. Everything intertwined. The alcohol is easily noticeable.
    • Finish
      medium long, becoming drier. It remains an oak flavor with some lemon zest.
      From the throat sweet notes with Moncherie cherry.

    A great Strathisla in unusual expansion. Delicious.
    • Nose
      Dark fruit, grapes, very wine-like aromas first, then sweet and heavy. Dark chocolate, red fruit, oak, walnuts and beeswax. In the background leather polish.
    • Taste
      Again dark wine aroma, red fruit, nuts, wax and coffee notes. Maybe a little bit too much to the alcoholic.
    • Finish
      Long and dry. Dark chocolate, nut, oak, espresso.
