Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 1960 GM

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.95 points

  1. dram-drinker scored this whisky 93 points Moderator

    Really there can't go anything wrong with this - an old Strathisla at its best - it can just get better with a little more oomph (go for the dram takers)
    • Nose
      Plenty of dried fruits, nuts, toffee, sherry wood, acacia honey, nutmeg, molasses, tobacco - excellent!
    • Taste
      Little punchy, oily, liquorice, sherry wood balanced with sweetness, more dried fruits, more spices - great!
    • Finish
      Long, warm, more coffee notes, little zesty, a tad more tannins

  2. bakerman scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Superb and very elegant nose, unfortunately a little too woody on the palate which prevents an even higher rating for me
    • Nose
      Sherry, clove, custard, chocolate, blackforrest cake, pinewood, little tobacco
    • Taste
      sherry, spearmint, tea, clove, tannins
    • Finish
      dry, spicy, woody, winey, jam, medium length
