    From WhiskyFun,

    Strathisla 30 yo 1976 (46.2%, Exclusive Malts, Cask #2913, 156 bottles, 2007) Colour: gold. Nose: an expressive, fruity and fresh start on freshly squeezed oranges, ginger, oak and hints of eucalyptus. Something unusually maritime (sea breeze), apple juice, notes of linseed oil, wax polish… It smells then more and more like mint leaves that you’d have rubbed between your hands, with also notes of lemon balm and camphor. Complex and nervous considering its age, perfect.
    Mouth: slightly rougher, less polished than on the nose but still very expressive. Nuttier, saltier and more liquoricy. Goes on with caramel sauce and toasted brioche, oak, pecan pie… More on crystallised oranges after that, but there’s always lots of caramel and praline. Very good. Finish: long, candied, caramelized and still slightly salty. And still no vinosity. Extremely palatable and quite fresh globally. Far from the usual ‘thick’ sherry monsters. 90 points.

    Could be more intensively in the taste. A bottling that is coming through the backdoor.
