  1. Titi94 scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    This version of Strathisla displays with class and a very natural pride its 40 years in barrel (sherry butt). A highly civilized single malt from Gordon & Mac Phail bottled in small batch.
    • Nose
      Elegant, harmonious. It is marked by notes of honey (acacia), citrus (orange), leather and brown. It evolves on spices (nutmeg), flowers (iris) and oak.
    • Taste
      Creamy. It is dominated by exotic fruits (mango, coconut). It develops on notes of chocolate, caramel and spices (cumin).
    • Finish
      Tender, delicate. It is powdery, spicy (coriander, cinnamon) and it unfolds as and when balsamic (eucalyptus, cedar).

    Nose: oak, sherry, cough syrup, buttery nuttiness, cinnamon, a very rich one.

    Taste: quite thick and spicy for 43%, accent on oak, cough syrup, hints of coffee.

    Finish: long and spicy developing on prunes, nuts and oak.

    Overall: very confident Strathisla in every component.

    High-quality dreadnought sherry Dos black brandy with barrel effect High-grade creme de cassis Hi-cacao chocolate Smoked straw Straw brown sugar or phosphorus Burnt smell remains ...
    It has a heavy and savory taste similar to the fragrance.It has a special touch and taste of black bean honey, brandy and espresso liqueur. Bitter chocolate and herbal liqueur at the end of tart
    Shelly tannin that remains deep in the body from the lungs to the nostrils is slightly earthy and has a long finish
    I always think, but I can't believe it's hydration! With respect to the lubricating barrels of this era, and at the same time the opportunity to drink and the reasonable price are losing, when can we drink next?

    Superb oldschool, but heavily sherried whisky. It’s not subtle, despite the abv. It’s an oldstyle sherry powerhouse that delivers on all the usual flavor suspects. This Strathisla has juicy red fruits, intense sweets and is in perfect harmony with the wood (never and nowhere does it get too bitter). Lovely! Highly ranks in my top 10!

    I don't think I tasted Strathisla before. Not one of the usual distilleries; maybe, or even probably even underrated.

    This dram simply (as part of a vintage tasting) has a brilliant sherry nose. This continues in the taste and finish. Sure would like a bottle of this, but it is unfortunately not affordable.

  8. Cask1988 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Part of a vintage tasting.
    This one came up right after a Tamdhu 1962 and these are actually quite similar. But where the Tamdhu was all about balance, this one leans a little more to the sherry side. Don’t get me wrong, it is still marvelous whisky. It’s just a little less balanced on the nose and taste. Finish was a little more about herbal notes combined with red fruits and dried oloroso oak. Very pleasant!! But hey what are we talking about, this was again, one hell of a treat from the old days! more of this please..

  9. Dram Dracula scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Wonderful old sherry aromas, but I can tell already it doesn't have that thick body that would kick this up a notch -- that's the problem with these older strathislas that were bottled at a lower ABV -- they are all pretty good but not very memorable. As for the taste, as expected, it was very good, a bit of wood spice, nice, elegant, old sherry flavors, and all in all, this is deliciously chuggable. Again, the ABV :(

    Comment LMDW:
    Aged in first-fill sherry casks, this old Strathisla vintage is of great richness and impressive sweetness. On the nose, notes of plums, dried fruits, spices and milk chocolate, the palate is creamy and reveals notes of mint, sherry and chilli.The addition of a few drops of water will make it more complex.

    Only (well) 250 EUR. Thanks, Jan, for the sample.
    • Nose
      The nose alone is a feast. Sherry, caramel, roasted
      almonds and hazelnuts, Nutella chocolate spread and a leaf of mint. Some
      cinnamon. Slowly but surely some roast beef creeps in. Rather complex and very,
      very good.
    • Taste
      The attack is not very powerful, but nevertheless just
      enough punch. Quite
      some oranges now. And pretty spicy. Something slightly metallic. Could that be
      the beginnings of OBE? Really? Midpalate, it regains it balance, becomes sweet
      and warm. Coffee liqueur and parlines. Tannine and woodspice
      towards the end.
    • Finish
      The finish is warm, long and spicy with a lot of oak
      on the deathbed.
