Strathisla 1965 Rare Vintage (Gordon and MacPhail)

Strathisla 1965 Rare Vintage (Gordon and MacPhail) The penultimate dram on this Gordon and MacPhail Rare Vintages Tweet Tasting from The Whisky Wire was this 1965 Strathisla.

Sweet, fruity, toffee'd this is a delicious dram, the finish is unusual with what i can only describe as sweet butter lemons, if you can imagine that also.

You can buy this dram now from The Whisky Exchange

Many thanks to Steve from The Whisky Wire and to Gordon and MacPhail for including me on this Tweet Tasting.


Big sweet toffee softening fruit with a hint of polish, develops into strong sherry notes of plums, raisins and apples, then some dates and a hint of malteasers.

sweet sweet sweet at first sip, followed by a nice warm alcohol fruits and sherry, sweetness but an underlying cough medicine taste as well

dry, clean with a long lingering taste of sweet butter lemons 9if there was such a thing)
