Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1995

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.55 points

  1. ctu scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Very good concentrated, flavored whisky, for easy to drink without water.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, malt, apple and banana, honey and caramel, pepper. Touch of leather and tobacco.
    • Taste
      Oily. Flowers, honey, caramelized apple, citruses, cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Medium length, sweet, fruity.

  2. Okto-Bull scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Nice thing. I like it.
    • Nose
      Rather reserved in the nose. Dark fruits like cherries and plums. In addition, dried fruit and raisins. A dark sweetness and possibly a little sherry are to be guessed in the background. The alcohol is well integrated.
    • Taste
      At first glance, the approach seems reserved, but suddenly it gets stormy with pepper, sugar candy and raisins. A drought is spreading. Tobacco leaves and sherry
    • Finish
      Pepper again. In addition, cocoa and light roasted aromas. Now comes slightly bitter and spicy oak.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Expert Senior

    a mature whisky, the 19 years go by without a trace. Compared to the 14er handfilled it loses a bit of freshness, which I have so far associated with Strathisla. Good whisky, but the 14er I liked better.
    • Nose
      Spicy and ripe, marzipan, wood, hints of fruit. With water comes a few more fruit flavors, but the wood continues to dominate.
    • Taste
      Strong, nutmeg, oak. With water, the whisky is sweeter, the wood and the spices are joined by a few fruit flavors and some pepper.
    • Finish
      bittersweet, strongly embossed oak, slightly astringent, with some pepper.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Specialist

    • Nose
      Apple juice, caramel, fermenting melon, vanilla, almond chippings, apricot. A strange perfume when adding water.
    • Taste
      Caramel, apple and a vibrant nuttiness. A floral touch when adding water.
    • Finish
      Caramel, apple, pecan nut and vanilla.

    Pretty drinkable and enjoyable - of course with water only.

    This new style Strathisla has not much to do with the very old Strathislas that are very much on dried fruits but I think this is still much better than the regular 12yo.
    • Nose
      Malty, ripe bananas, vanilla, fruity, little bit toffeeish, leatherish or tobaccoish
    • Taste
      Very punchy and powerful, oily, more on citrus fruits, oranges, just little wood notes, cinnamon.

      Water is highly recommended - without it is so strong that there is not much to taste. With water there is a nice and smooth fruity note with a touch of oak.
    • Finish
      Long and burning, a tad bitter in the end.

  7. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Vintage Label Tasting 19-03-2016 with Whiskyclub Spakenburg
    • Nose
      Orange, strawberries, tobacco and pepper.
    • Taste
      Spices - pepper, orange and fruity.
    • Finish
      Orange and syrup.
