  1. Buecherwurm scored this whisky 80 points Expert Junior

    Strathisla 25 years Gordon & MacPhail WID: 81656
    Abv. 43%, first fill Sherry Butts
    Nose: dry with fine woody spiciness, a minimal touch of sulfur, but not disturbing, although I'm sensitive there, a few more percent would have done the somewhat light nose certainly good, remains of a mint tea, Physalis I often have with slightly sulphurous whiskys
    Taste: significantly more sulfur, carbon dioxide, old mineral water, slightly musty, little sherry sweetness, delicately bitter chocolate with cocoa coating, plum chutney
    Departure: long and tannic from the European oak, a hint of bitter almond, unfortunately quite simple though medium long
    Conclusion: Yes you can have tried, but you do not have. Unfortunately, we are not friends and at the price you can certainly treat yourself to something else. Maybe I also approached this drop too high an expectation.

    Creamy, caramel-like sherry aromas with lots of dark dried fruit, black tea, sweet rum pot and the scent of the fair. Wood.

    The taste flattens out a bit, so a few more alcohol percentages would certainly be good. At the beginning the impressions of the nose repeat themselves somewhat dusty. Later slightly bitter, some wood.

    Medium-long finish, now more bitter substances.
