Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1972 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.43 points

  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    This Strathisla definitly needs some time and some water to show all it secrets. However, for me it stays a little too harsh to bew a real stunner.
    • Nose
      It starts malty and a bit yeasty. Balsamico vinegar. Citrus fruit later on.
    • Taste
      Hot and spicy! Quite alcoholic (mind you 62,6% for a 25 year old whisky). Also very waxy and oily. Mouthcoating. Later on tropical fruit and bananas, in particular after some drops of water.
    • Finish
      Long. The spiciness remains. Liquorice.

  2. man2392 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Nose: Menthol and eucalyptus, almost tarry, Fisherman's Friend, green pepper and cornflakes

    Palate: fireworks in my mouth, black treacle, ginger, allspice, gunpowder, sunflower seeds and heat

    Finish: syrupy and something medicinal- crushed pills perhaps

    Tasted blind as part of Coke Float Thursday
