Quantity limited to 1 bottle.

It would be impossible to mention Strathisla without talking about the legendary sherry cask bottlings from renowned independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail which date back to the 1930s and are unquestionably part of the firmament of single malts. This enthralling version is in the same vein. Matured in a first-fill sherry cask, it is particularly expressive, as reflected by its aroma palette, which could almost be sufficient on its own. Not to be outdone and just as demonstrative, the flavour palette follows an autumnal and floral path with noble spices, malt, chocolate, exotic fruits that infinitely draw out the length of the tasting.

Description

TASTING NOTES


Colour:
deep orangey copper.

Nose: rich, complex. The absolutely magnificent aroma palette unveils red fruits (strawberry, raspberry), black fruits (bramble, blackcurrant), a very pure apricot rancio, and aromas of leather, polish (wax), sweet spices (cinnamon, ginger), heady florals (tuberose, iris), dried fruit and nuts (chestnut, date, walnut), dead leaves, chocolate, coffee, curry, exotic fruits (mango, persimmon, guava), aromatic plants (sage, camomile) and sandalwood, to name a few.

Palate: taut, lively. Overflowing with vitality, the attack is at first spicy (saffron), heady (broom, carnation, gillyflower), oriental (Turkish delight, rose petal) and finely liquoricey. On the mid-palate, a delicious malty bitterness brings the flavour palette lots of smoothness. Divinely chocolatey, it lingers on very distinguished flavours of spice bread and cream coffee. The exotic (mango, pomegranate, lychee) and citrus (orange zest) end of the finish invites us to enjoy a succulent quince jelly.

Finish: long, silky. At the start of the finish, dried fruit and nuts (almond, fig, Corinthian raisin, prune, chestnut) emphasize the tertiary and autumnal character of this extraordinary Strathisla. At the end of the finish, bourbon vanilla and walnut stain coat the side of the palate in their coarse yet velvety tannins. Full of energy, and in guise of a signature, the retro-nasal olfaction adds a floral (lilac, violet) and mineral (zan liquorice sweets, charcoal) touch to the end of the finish. The empty glass is characterized by fragrances of flowering geranium, candied orange, toffee and grated ginger.
