  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    If you like wine barrel maturation (like me), you will get your money's worth here. An extremely sweet and fruity nose, voluminous and fruity body, the aftertaste is unfortunately extremely short and unspectacular. Otherwise, I like this bottling very much, I'm looking forward to the rest of the sample!

    • Nose
      The Strathclyde shimmers soft pink with an unusual color combination in the Premium Snifter. Reddish and orange, dusky pink and peach, visually very interesting, but also nasally the Strathclyde shows an extremely unusual side. Roasted flavors mix with wet cereal flavors, creamy, oily, red wine barrel, dark and sweet grapes, caramel, dried grapes and berries, oranges, vanilla, whole milk chocolate, strawberries and raspberries, the flavors go crazy!
    • Taste
      The first sip pours creamy and full-bodied on the tongue. Red wine, caramel, cereals, malt, chocolate, strawberries, raisins and extremely fruity sweetness. Hazelnuts spread throughout the mouth, subtle sharpness arises, a pinch of black pepper follows, malty and sweet and creamy cereal notes appear on the palate. There are minimally sour fruit components in the background, the wine barrel finish gives the Strathclyde a soft and extremely fruity character.
    • Finish
      Mild, sweet, fruity, malty grain, minimally spicy and unfortunately extremely short ...

    Good with water. Without not. 79 points
    • Nose
      Artificial perfume notes. Strawberry perfume. Rose fragrance. Then come berries and nuts. Weinig is the nose too. The artificial note can not hide. Water : The artificial note disappears almost completely. Now it is really delicious.
    • Taste
      Full, sparkling. Nutty berries. A touch of perfume (along with the sharpness, as if from a mishap something perfume to the lips). Bitter goodie.
      Water : Hardly changed, a little softer.
    • Finish
      Long. Beer Fruity.

  6. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    When blind tasting not recognized as Grain, but also much younger estimated. Beautiful whiskey yet.
    • Nose
      sweetish, spicy, vinous, raspberries, liquorice, somehow "cool"
    • Taste
      strong onset, then wine, pepper, slightly sourish fruit note, some cereals, somehow spicy.
    • Finish
      Spicy, a little sweet, less than expected, slightly chilling, then licorice.

  7. Dramned! did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    He is very nice round and pleases with wonderful fruit notes, but ...
    • Nose
      Red fruits like ripe strawberries, raspberries, juicy lemons, orange peel, you also smell the red wine quite clearly. If I have many other whiskeys often ham flavors, so it is here time salami. And that as a vegetarian ...
      Also, the oak comes through stronger, the longer you smell, although not as strong as I would have expected at the age.
    • Taste
      Warm tickling on the whole tongue, sweet and sour fruit notes, currants, raspberry jelly, and kirsch, really fat sugar syrup as with Turkish baklava. Salted nuts. And again clearly the red wine - as if it had been tipped while tasting in the whiskey ... Probably the Rioja barrel was emptied very fresh. I have not tannins of red wine, but very beautiful oak notes that soften the sweetness a bit.
    • Finish
      The finish is grain typical rather short and unspectacular, but very beautiful fruity and creamy.
