- [May, 2017] Finally I emptied a bottle that I bought for 69 Euro in February, 2016.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 85. My notes state "nothing really remarkable about it"...
- Strathmill 1995 CA WID: 54409
18 years, Bourbon Hogshead, 54.4%
Nose: very malty sweet, not very fruity, a little caramel, in the background strawberries in a slightly artificial form
Taste: more malt, almost like kvass, well-integrated bitterness, saves the malt a little from the extreme one-dimensionality
Finish: slightly astringent, but more of the palate, medium length through the fairly present tannins, but again very one-dimensional
Conclusion: You can not say much against the Malt now, but not much for it. It is a round thing with a lot of malt and sweetness and you also notice that the drop was 18 years in the barrel. It will not be really exciting. A solid drinking color without thinking too much about it. I would have preferred a hole in Lomond 17 instead. He can do a lot more for the same money.
