    I didn’t know what to expect but it’s actually a great dram, very different from the usual sherry bombs strathislas

    It's definitely not the typical old sherry loaded Strathisla but rather a fresh and fruity one. Actually reminds of some of the best old Clynelish. It's certainly again a memorable Samaroli bottling. Great stuff!
    • Nose
      Fresh fruity, citrusy, waxy, sweet and complex. Touches of lemony, mango, ananas and banana.
    • Taste
      Citrusy, lemony, smooth and waxy again with hints of other fruits. With water the different aromas come out more - even a bit grassy and green bananas.
    • Finish
      Medium long, salty and even a bit maritime
