  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [September, 2015]  I bought bottle no. 43 for 152,50 Euro in September, 2007 and this is one of my last saved samples.

    Wow, what a nice nose!  The typical Strathisla potpourrie of aromas all in one glass - you can sit for hours and you will still find new notes in this complex and delicate malt.  On the palate the high abv takes its toll first, but after that it all becomes very, very enjoyable.  The barley sweetness is surrounded by spices and a slightly salty touch.  Too bad, the finish is not that long so you have to sip again and again to keep this wonderful feeling in your mouth...  But the nose is by far the best of this very nice malt!  Well done, Mr. Symington, to select this cask for the (then) new millennium...

    ...I just retried it and added some water.  This really improves the finish to at least medium length (87 points).
