Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1970 GM

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.05 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 91 points Moderator

    I would say it is not overly complex but rather straight forward, also quite fresh for its age. It reminds more on a younger fresh sherry cask. Anyway pretty drinklable!
    • Nose
      91 91
      Fresh red fruits, berries, jam, spices, oak wood, whiffs of leather - very good
    • Taste
      92 92
      Very creamy, mellow, thick, subtle sweetness, good oak wood, more spices, walnuts, a bit more leathery notes but not too strong - really not bad
    • Finish
      90 90
      Long, warm, more woody notes and spices, zesty, and yes, herbs

  2. Baanaanaabob scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    red fruits, leather, spices, nice sherry not very complex and the abv might be a bit low, a hint of sulphur not a problem, still very drinkable

  3. Malt Hans scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Fruity and spicy aroma, raisins, figs, plum jam, mango, nutmeg, cinnamon, coffee, leather, black currants and anise. Medium sweet taste, ginger, cardamom, pepper, mint, anise, grapefruit marmalade and burnt almonds. Long, spicy and herbal end.
