Whisky Reviews for Strathclyde 1988 G&C

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.50 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    An above average grain whisky, if you ask me. It lacks the complexity to be top notch, but it does deliver with fruit and a warming kick of spice. 
    • Nose
      Typical grain profile: grain itself, varnish, resin, banana candy, pastry, tinned peach, vanilla and wood.
    • Taste
      Sweet, alcoholic, with a little burn. Very spicy: pepper, candied ginger, wood, vanilla, a tad grassy even. With water, the fruit shows, but not in the same sweet (rather the unripe) variants.
    • Finish
      Medium long, still a bit hot. Spice dominates, with the grain itself, and some fresher fruit now (berries) and unripe banana.

  2. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Sweet for a grain. Porridge, raspberry, vanilla pudding, tangerine and banana. Water changes it: Mainly apple.
    • Taste
      Spicy and sweet. Oatmeal, vanilla, raspberry and banana.
    • Finish
      Vanilla sugar, raspberry, oatmeal, apple, banana and cucumber.

    Strathclyde 1988-2015, 26 years, 55% alc. Pearls of Scotland Strathclyde 1988-2015, 26 years, 55% alc.
    Bottler: Pearls of Scotland
    Extension: Bourbon barrel
    Region: Lowlands, Scotland

    Special feature: Single Grain Whiskey from Glasgow

    Nose: banana in cereal, a lot of banana. In addition maple honey, peach and some apricot. These really fruity aromas of shortbread, very mild oak and delicate grasses are complemented.

    Palate: Unripe banana, lots of cereals, vanilla and shortbread, here is the age barely felt, from oak no trace. Mild, fruity, creamy, almost summery. Grasses, honey, peach and vanilla pudding.

    Finish: Medium length, slightly bitter, fruity and summery, tingling and warming.

    Conclusion: rather a whiskey for summer months, not very complex and with silky / bitter Grain flavors.

    85/100 points (tasted 2015, approx. 110 €)
