    Nice delicate sherry in dried fruits, sweet spices, toffee, wood influence is there with some astringency, a bit of varnish, very drinkable

    This one can definitely compete with the best non-sherried Strathislas - so fruity - fantastic!
    • Nose
      Very fruity, apricots, pears, sweet and sticky, honey, hints of oak wood and malty, whiffs of exotic fruits as well, pineapples, mango - very good!
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, again very fruity, very nice sweetness, but now more oak wood appears, also hints of vanilla, and definitely creme brulee - great!
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm and more oak wood in the end but still a good level of sweetness

    Oh yes ... that's great. Normally I do not get along with such old single malts. But he is also something extraordinary for me. He already gives his first business card in the nose. Gaaanz much fruit, where I smell mainly ripe Williams pear. But do not worry ... there is butterfudge and cream Bruelee (right?). Nasenmäßig makes this malt no one. Aööe Attention!
    And all these olfactory promises become reality on the tongue and on the palate. Unbelievable what comes out there. And..yes..goldbears and haribo wine country really comes through. Class.
    Finish: Jo, he has. And how! I do not brush my teeth today ...
    :-)

    Great, old Strathisla from the Bourbon barrel. The taste is not quite close to the extremely beautiful nose, but that is already moaning at a high level. The oak is far less intrusive than I know it from many Glenfarclas (and less like), only at the end wins the barrel here.
    • Nose
      A real fruit bomb and lovely sweet. Haribo apple rings, many green grapes, honey, pears. In the background, after a while in the glass, the first harsher flavors. Surprisingly little oak for this age, overall gorgeous floral and fruity. Very nice nose.
    • Taste
      The Malt is initially very restrained. Something sweet pears and grapes here too, then the Strathisla suddenly unfolds and now shows its old age. It becomes spicy, with light pepper and still a clear fruit note. Despite the strong spiciness, the malt does not dry out the mouth, quite the contrary. The sweet fruit note accompanies the oak very gallantly and leaves them far less intrusive and dominant, as one might expect.
    • Finish
      In the long finish, it is then spicy again and now a little drier. The tannins are now more apparent than before. The fruit could not be saved until here.
