  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A decent Strathisla. May be a little too oaky for me. Sample from Dennis.
    • Nose
      Grassy and herbal at first. Polished oak. Flowery notes. Orange peel. Some soap.
    • Taste
      Very waxy. Lemon. Vanilla with crisp red fruit and orange. Hazelnuts. Cedar wood. Ginger.
    • Finish
      Quite long. Bitter-sweet oakiness. Spices of black pepper but also chili peppers. Menthol at the end.

    Tasting Notes from Mark Watt (WM Cadenhead):

    Nose: Warm stewed apples; cinnamon, cherries, smoked almonds and parma ham.

    Palate: Lots of red apples, rhubard and sherry. A touch of spice and soft woodiness.

    Finish: Warming sherry notes; soft spice; distant smokiness with pear skins.
