Whisky Reviews for Strathclyde 1980 DT

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.50 points

  1. Thermidor scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    I was hoping for a bit more sherry cask influence. This Strathclyde is pleasing, but nothing more. Its spirity side is too dominant for me, and after being open a few days, the oak has toned down, making it more stereotypically vanilla-ed.
    On bad days it’s an example of why you could call grain wood alcohol, on good days it’s pleasant.
    • Nose
      Sugary sweetness, some soft oak, and pure ethanol. Some Marabou milk chocolate in the back,. With water you'll find vanilla, and some kind of unusually sugary shortbread.
    • Taste
      Water or no water, it remains a bit thin, but a lot of water seemed best, with these sugary mocha flashes it opened. It's exactly as the nose says, and moreish in a bourbon way, but I can't shake these occasional disinfectant notes that drop the overall score.
    • Finish
      Long on sugary sweetness and faint milk chocolate. The empty glass smells of vanilla and sawdust.
