Strathisla 2005 Distillery Labels (Gordon and MacPhail)
Strathisla is another of those distilleries that have just not really been on my radar, and i might have missed a few really good drams because of it.
This Distillery labels Strathisla from Gordon and MacPhail has lots of sweet orchard fruit notes, it's actually seriously very tasty and priced seriously well at around the £35 a bottle mark
One to add to the collection and enjoy regularly with friends.
You can buy this dram now from Master of Malt
Many thanks Gordon and MacPhail for the official sample.
sour Bramley apples, lots of other sweeter orchard fruits in here, a touch of sweet fresh pears, hints of toffee apples, caramel and a light fresh oak woodiness
Sweet oak wood notes, woody fruits, orchard notes, caramel/toffee apples, tangy, there's a slight hint of bitter bramley apples but lovely stuff.
Quite oaky, long and tangy
