  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    Ingenious stuff, I'm careful with many Strathis, as they often get too bitter for me, you just have something here in the finish.
    • Nose
      Dream, one of those rare, super greasy Oldschoolnasen, dark forest honey, best, oiled suede, camphor, cinnamon, cardamom, rumrosines, old Armagnac, a lot of milk chocolate, plum cake, candied ginger, cherry juice
    • Taste
      Cherries, plum juice, more viscous than greasy, but very aromatic, candied ginger, red apple, fennel, oregano, thyme, camphor, roibo tea, a lot of milk chocolate, dark toffee, some blood orange, nutmeg, cinnamon, old Armagnac
    • Finish
      More oak, dark chocolate, coconut, leaves, lots of gingerbread, blood orange, long

  2. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Delicious. The mixture of herbs (lemon balm / lavender / camomile), spices, tangerine and Toblerone is exceptional.
    • Nose
      Toblerone, honey, milk chocolate, raisins, orange, tangerine, pineapple, lemon balm, lavender, chamomile, coffee, licorice, malt, mint, cinnamon
    • Taste
      mild, soft, slightly tingling, tangerine, lemon balm, lavender, a lot of chamomile, ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, honey, raisins, milk chocolate, almonds, some coffee, licorice, a lot of malt, some mint and cinnamon
    • Finish
      medium to long, with cardamom, coffee, a lot of chamomile, a lot of malt and Toblerone, a little mint, lemon balm

  4. dRambo scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    a dream nose, clear, clean, filigree but not weak and simply beautiful
    • Nose
      94 94
      fresh, fruity, vibrant acidity, crystalline fruit aromas, sweetened coconut, boiled plums, tangerines, spring blossoms, dark honey, elderberry, sea buckthorn, rose hip, well-groomed leather, a touch of furniture polish, the nose is dense, noble, productive - without it stinging
    • Taste
      90 90
      fine delicate wood aroma, a touch of mint and rosemary, dark chocolate, cold and warm at the same time, plum, blood orange, a little liquorice, tree juice, ginger, fennel - if you slowly chew it, the aromas of the nose are all found on the palate.
    • Finish
      90 90
      dark chocolate, rosemary, mint, espresso, fruit that keeps flashing

  9. helmutgw scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    One of the best Strathislas in drinking strength I know!
    • Nose
      Excellent Sherrynase, fruits, multi-layered spiciness similar to No. 10,617th
      Over time, the fruits get a slight perfume note.
    • Taste
      Beautiful solid body that can not quite convert the excellent nose into taste.
    • Finish
      Long finish, everything, bitter.
