Whisky Reviews for Strathclyde 25-year-old SMWS G10.6

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.00 points

  1. ARDBERG did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS.com.au notes:The Spice Temple
    Nose:
    Marshmallow meringue and wafer biscuits; blueberry friande; Milo; Turkish delight, and nutmeg. Sweet and complex.

    Palate:
    Juicy fruit chewing gum. Then sweet fruits. Then fruit confectionery. Boiled lollies. White chocolate. Fantales. Tea-soaked raisins. There are some contrasting savoury notes such as baked parsnip, and sweet potato.

    Finish:
    Soft toffee oozes out over a medium length.

    Comments:Anyone who says grain whiskies can be dull on the palate needs to either taste this or be shot. It’s a wonderfully sweet excursion that’s playful, complex, vibrant and a lot of fun to drink. Most aged grains become austere - this one has grown old whilst maintaining its youthfulness. A fantastic grain whisky and a great one to grab if you’ve never tried the category.

    SMWS UK Tasting Panel:

    The nose was initially rich with rum soaked fruits, golden syrup and toffee sauce. Pop corn, and crumble topping made with Nice biscuits emerged next and then balsa wood with light engine oil. The panel found the taste warming and exotic; chilli and orange oil mingled with Tiger Balm and licorice. Water opened curious notes of yacht varnish and warmed magazine paper. Roasted pork marinated with a cinnamon rub and plum sauce on the nose developed into five spice, star anise and curry powder. Eucalyptus, dried rose petals and polished brass evoked the sense of wandering through a temple.
    CASK G10.6
