Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1960 GM

5 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.71 points

  1. whiskycuse did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Of course this whisky is just for sherry fans and friends of rather dry and dry whiskys. For the age of 51, it is amazingly balanced and not too bitter. But a glass of it is so packed with everything that you do not need much more in the evening. For me personally in the taste a bit too much wood, the nose is terrific!

  2. Malt Hans scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Woody and spicy aroma, turpentine, eucalyptus, furniture polish, figs, raisins, prunes and toffee. Spicy and tannic taste, camphor, pepper, grapefruit maramlade, dark chocolate and coffee. Long, tannic and herbal end.

  3. Sonett scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A good one, but I think oak was a bit to dominant. 
    • Nose
      Oak and Sherry comes to to your nose immideatly but there is more to it. Full of dark fruits, Dates, Figs, Raisins and dried Plums.

      In the background a hint of cinnamon
    • Taste
      Very much like ordinary old Strathisa's I have tasted but much more dominated by oak and barrel wood.
    • Finish
      Soft and tasty dark fruits fading out in a oaky bitterness

    Tasting Notes by SCOMA: 

    Aroma: Sweet with a sharp sherry, fresh and fragrant.

    Taste: Soft and well balanced graces, mouth-warming with clear sherry.

    Finish: Soft and warm. 

  5. FARBTRINKER6666 scored this whisky 90 points Newbie

    Dark fruits, coated with sherry, sherry and more sherry. A dream.
