Strathisla 12 Year


Strathisla 12 Year Taste Profile

Stats – 43% alcohol, Highland
Color – Golden amber
Nose – Sweet and earthy
Palate – A touch grassy and bit of paraffin up front, citrusy zest cuts that quickly though.  The bitter citrus is a touch warmer, like roasted lemon peels.  A little allspice continues to warm this drink up toward the finish.  Just a bit of medicinal astringency here, but sweet cereal tastes carry it off well and help the finish to a caramel character.

Alternatives:

  1. Glenfarclas 15 Year (91%)
  2. Bowman Brothers – Small Batch (87%)
  3. Glenkinchie 12 Year (86%)
