    I never buy young grains, but Strathclyde [in sherry] is an exception. I’m not sure in hindsight this is that sherried, but the whirlwind romance of a visit to the Chivas-owned Strathisla distillery found me buying a bottle back in 2016.

    N: Not too raw but pokey & evidently column still/rum-like. This is assured and resinous coconut buttery/oily vanilled spirit, one with promising developing qualities and a good clean pong.
    T: Reminds me somewhat of Cooley’s Greenore 8yo, albeit with much more body. It travels with ease and with a malty, vanilled, coconut buttery chew - but water management is key.
    F: Some bitter-sour accompanies the malty vanilla.
    C: This is a straight-ahead young grain showing solid form, though I can’t say I enjoyed it as a sipper all that much. Ideal for a highball I reckon.Scores a C[+]

    This Strathclyde is a real treat. Cross tasting with the OB Strathclyde from 2013 (Batch 1). Thanks Antony for sharing this with me. Really appreciated!
    • Nose
      Lovely nose with lots of fruity sweetness of mango, pineapple and papaya. Butterscotch. Cake mix. Cocoas butter as well. Pencil shavings and sawdust are present at the background.
    • Taste
      Quite waxy. Lots of American Bourbon characteristics of treacle, vanilla and honey. Candy floss and custard powder. Like eating sticky toffee pudding in a Scottish pub (which I like a lot...). Very nice.
    • Finish
      Medium long. Nutmeg. Resinous. Taninnes. A little pine at the end.
