Nose
Resiny. Sappy. Crème brûlée. Smoky.
Palate
Lightly syrupy, developing fruity dryness, then vanilla-pod nutty spiciness...
Finish
Sudden, surprising, surge of smokiness.
Comment
Strathisla has its own distinct, rather dry style-and this is a good example.

Martine Nouet

80
Nose
Rich and intense. Unmistakeably Oloroso. Resiny. Plum marmalade. Clove orange, cinnamon.
Palate
Very complex and elegant, releasing waves of flavours. Mulled wine. Jaffa cake. Candied ginger. Spanish oak.
Finish
Lingering, dry, slightly astringent, spicy.
Comment
A rich expression of a venerable sherry maturation. Will delight sherry-cask aficionados.
