Whisky Reviews for Strathclyde 1989 SMWS G10.4

    SMWS Tasting Notes

    Colour: Burnished copper
    Flavour: Spicy & sweet

    Something quite Christmassy gift-wrapped the nose – oranges, mixed peel, Brazils, pecan pie, floral perfumes, varnished wood and pine trees. Water introduced dark chocolate, toffee, fudge, and coconut, with hints of spice. The palate had unexpected medicinal impact (cough syrup, Lockets) and a broomstick whoosh of impressive dark sweetness that could have come from a cauldron (molasses on wood, dark honey, thick-cut, sticky marmalade, treacle scones, cinder toffee, cola bottle sweets). In reduction, caramelized sugar and sweet coffee dregs maintained the sweetness while the medicinal aspect now encompassed throat lozenge heat and suggestions of menthol. From column stills in the Gorbals.

    Drinking tip: A conversation piece – something different and curious
