2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 92.00 points

  1. ConvalRen scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Jokes on you Tom, expecting me to dislike this sherry that tastes metallic and full on chemical.
    • Nose
      91 91
      Seaweed, salt, cooked potatoes, chalk, flour, brie cheese.

      Herbal oak, light on the sherry notes. Rather pleasant to be honest. A mixture of organic compounds, the odd smell of a fish tank that requires cleaning. Glycol and hydrogen peroxide, yes that's right, that bitter compound used for bleach.

      Long and soft on the tongue though it is very dry towards the back of the throat. Musky like an old barnyard kind of sensation, if that's the right term for this. Moss and morning dewdrops.

  2. dramspotter scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    This is a bit of an oddball Strathisla, where does that resin come from? I am not a fan of the woodiness in the finish which brings down the overall score but until that point, it has a rather marked interest.
    • Nose
      resin, marker pen, a bit coastal
    • Taste
      dense, herbal
    • Finish
      wow, woody bitterness
