Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1963 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.67 points

  1. ctu scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Interesting Strathisla, good maturing, but a slowly opening one. Restrained and refined.
    • Nose
      Milk chocolate, lacquered wood and fruit compotes. Clove.
    • Taste
      Refined. Solid sherry and oak. Mixed fruit compote with clove, cinnamon and ginger.
    • Finish
      Long, spicy, oaky.

    Probably not fair to try this immediately after the Glenfarclas 40 year 105 Anniversary but its pretty decent.

    Love the bottle label and these old G&M Strathisla offer good value for money compared with other OB aged offerings

    Good stuff, showing its age but not at the brink yet.
    • Nose
      Cocoa powder, coffee beans (in the back ground) milk chocolate, Turkish Delight, 
    • Taste
      Nice and smooth the sherry is quite powerful and the wood is singing, quite oaky.

      Forrest fruits, a little ginger, bitter blackcurrant, mulled wine, a few Ribena notes, & spices.
    • Finish
      Good medium length,  with the spices growing.
