Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1964 GM

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.06 points

  1. Mankut scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    It has a very harmonious taste and a great complex nose. So it should be in old age. Old school the way you want it - a beautiful dark fruit sweetness and spiciness of the barrel flood the palate. The 43% are very, very good.
    A really great old Strathisla.

  2. dramspotter scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    immensely dark and the best overall of the six whiskies in the six G&M Strathislas sold in a case; where this wins is in the delivery rather than the nose, reminding me of the fruitiness of my Lochside. Delicious!
    • Nose
      dark cherry and Oloroso
    • Taste
      sappy, some dark fruits, definitely prunes
    • Finish
      wood; but there is a fruitiness in amongst the tannins

  3. DramGoodLife scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Lots its distillery character but a clean and flawless sherry nonetheless.
    • Nose
      Big on the citrus notes, lots of brown sugar, caramel and raisins.
    • Taste
      Big arrival with strong oak influence. Strong sherry presence with plenty of dark chocolate and even some cough medicine.
    • Finish
      Not overly dry, strong caramel note and a little burnt toast.

  4. Titi94 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Tasting Note by SCOMA:

    Nose: Hints of dried fruits with a defined Sherry nose. Sweet dessert wine influences and a lingering marzipan edge.

    Palate: Smooth and warming with a burst of Sherry sweetness. Hints of Christmas cake and a dark chocolate influences. Well balanced.

    Finish: Long.
