Whisky Reviews for Strathisla 2002 DR

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.08 points

  1. 67conrad67 scored this whisky 88 points Newbie

    Smell: medium, differentiated bouquet, alcohol well integrated, pomaceous fruit, pear, according to fermented apple, fine fruit sweetness, the omnipresent fruit cake of the Standard 12 is also clear on the nose, ice candy, lychee, in the background according to pine needles, forest honey in the document

    Taste: fine fruit sweetness, again very well integrated, but also present alcohol, hops note, yellow fruits again, dec. Herbal spices, fine almond bitterness, which are also dtl. pulls into the medium to long reverberation

    Color: yellow gold, narrow WR, clear

    Conclusion: Independent Strathisla bottlings are rather rare on the market - and this one deserves applause above all because it converts the basic style of the discontinued 12er into an unfiltered / uncolored version with barrel strength, in which the basic style of the standard is consistently conveyed ...
    So unreserved recommendation for all fans of the old 12, who have always wanted a little more pressure in the boiler.
