This Strathisla 1953 is a delicious dram filled with a mix of sherry cask notes of christmas cake and spices, raspberry and nutella cupcakes and a splash of Soor Plooms, this is complex, tasty and with a finish that goes on for a long time.

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.
