Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1963 JW

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 93.03 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 96 points Moderator

    Powerful, very fruity, rich and complex, balanced, good old sherry style - probably a little bit water recommended to make it even richer - really delicious!

    Head 2 head with the 1963 book of kells bottling #576 I think this one is a bit "wilder" and the book of kells slightly more balanced. However, this is really like splitting hairs.
    • Nose

      Intense, cooked oranges galore, dried fruits, hints of old books, whiffs of acacia honey, fine sherry wood, spices, little cinnamon and nutmeg, whiffs of molasses - superb!
    • Taste
      96 96
      Punchy, oily, creamy, sirupy, good sweetness, more cooked oranges, more dried fruits, prune, more xmas spice, hints of vanilla, sherry wood, little herbal - fantastic!
    • Finish
      95 95
      Long, warm, spicy, zesty, toffee, brown sugar, more woody, little more herbal, not drying, very fine leathery notes - great!
