strathisla 12 yo | 43%


A 50ml brown miniature of Strathisla 12 yo , with glass print label, Pure Malt Whisky from Speyside district in Scotland. Distilled and bottled by Chivas Brothers Ltd at 43% abv for Japan Market.



Rich and oaky, with dark fruits, hints of sherry, orange peel and lemon, then, dark chocolate and notes of caramel, finally, wood spices and barley malt.


Rich and full bodied, slightly oily creamy and silky, with plently of dried fruits and cereal notes, then nuts, spices and coffee notes, whiff of smoke in the end.


Medium length finish, spicy and slightly smoky, with ginger, cereal notes and warm oakiness in the background.


Personally I agree with some other tasting notes for this dram, that definitely this older edition is much better than the new one at 40% abv.
