    I wish I have more than just a 30ml sample of this. 93.5 points. 
    • Nose
      This is probably one of those whiskies that can't go wrong... right? Let's see! Upon first nosing, there's is mint, along with soft, elegant sherry notes with a bit of light soy sauce that I love in whiskies. There's also perfectly barbecued char siew. I am ready to go to town on this. Where are my chopsticks?!?
    • Taste
      Perfect strength... There is definitely some oomph to this, unlike other older G&M Strathislas. Complex but quite precise in the attack. Small little explosions in your mouth. Old oak, old books, dark chocolates, raisins, dates. This is how you want your sherry cask to be, folks.
    • Finish
      A bit drying at the end, but not egregious at all. Wonderful oak. Wonderful backbone. Would like the finish to last a bit longer, but you can't have everything in life.
