Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1970 GM
6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.00 points
- very cool nose - on the palate you have to stand on wood - reminds me of GF Edition no. 18 - but is a little better
deep red retro style sherry nose, red berries, plums and cherries, cinnamon, cloves, star anise, laurel and rosemary, a fine caramel note with distinct roasted aromas, lots of leather, rose petals, lilac, orange blossom, jasmine
the nose lives - it swings from sour to sweet, from floral to spicy, sometimes fruity, then again slightly woody
Berry purée with a slight yummy sulfur note, sour cherry juice, pomegranate with the white skin, then a film of tree sap and oak wood particles balsam-like on the tongue, the mouth becomes dry and the tongue waxy, unfolds fine but tart spices from this film - Chocolate and coffee full
old cognac, burnt paper, bay leaves, fresh olives, banana skin - very dry mouthfeel, some pepper and mint, rose petals, old wood flour
- N: warm chocolate milk, very full with spices and syrup
T: spices, orange and praline
F: very dry with spices - brown spices biscuit (speculaas) and later bitter
the taste is a little weak because of the low alcohol
tasted with Aby and JJ
- Tasting Notes by SCOMA:
Aroma: A subtle burst of rum and raisins, with a defined malty nose. Hints of brown sugar and a Christmas cake edge linger. Sweet "crème brûlée" influences develop.
Taste: A touch of festive spices - warming, some marzipan, almonds and an outbreak of compote. Smooth and very pleasant.
Finish: Long and sweet.
- another Masterpiece from Starthisla
