Whisky Reviews for Strathmill 12-year-old
31 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 80.16 points
- Molt is simple, but very pleasant, drinkable, quite rich and dense for its years - a soft oak speaker, something in the spirit of Stratale.
Restrained, dry, processed wood, dried fruit, herbaceous shades - dried grass, hay; dried apples and pears, dried leaves in herbarium, tablets in a shell.
Saturated, sweet-woody, light bitterness of the bark and herbs, light peppercorn, weak oiliness.
Spicy, warming, tart oak, creamy sweetness, light fruit sour, dried crust of orange.
- Slightly thin and oaky, but easy to drink.
Waxy fruits, citruses, spicy oak, vanilla and honey.
Spicy. Fruits and vanilla. Pepper, cinnamon and grass.
Medium length, dry, creamy, spicy, oaky.
- Pleasant nose, the rest drops significantly.
Young, floral, minimal oak. A few bright fruits, a bit of honey and vanilla. Not really exotic, but pleasant.
Soft and mild, creamy mouthfeel. Something spicy oak, from the pleasantly sweet honey, vanilla and fruit flavors from the nose is unfortunately only a slight copy. All in all a bit weak, as if all the aromas had already been "used up" after the nose. Pity
Rather entertaining and a bit thin. Slightly dry and with a tendency to bitterness, then gone already.
- A pleasantly fresh and soft whisky with alternating acidity and sweetness of citrus fruits. The nose is confirmed in taste - 06.12.2017
Subtle sweetness, soft, fruity, exotic, carambola, earthy notes, oak, spicy
Soft and mild, malt, fruit acidity that is replaced by fruit sweetness, citrus, pear, black pepper, slightly dry, slightly spicy with some bitterness from the oak
- Pretty good stuff. It shows Strathmill´s competence of delivering some fresh, crisp fruity spirit that makes it wanted in blends. But on it´s own, it´s worth a try too.
Very fresh, juicy and fruity. Gooseberries, pear, rhubarb, Later, the fruit gets a tad rounder, with apples and fresh plums. Then, a nice dose of malt and grass pop up too. The oak gives a soft layer of vanilla, and cinnamon.
Nice texture, not too thin, with a little kick of spice. It´s still on the juicy, fruity side. Next to that, there is baked bread and pastry, vanilla, mint and still that nice note of cinnamon. As said, some pepper kicks in.
Rather short, fading, and a bit on the dry side. The fruit has left for the oak to pronunciate. It does this with some butter cream, but especially with ginger and pepper.
- From the beginning, fruity and delicate, later drying out, adding spiciness and, unfortunately, bitterness. A hopeful beginning, a hopeless end ..
