STRATHISLA 65 Years 1953 G&M – Private collection


Private Collection.

Bottled at 43.5% in the Private Collection range, this 65 year old 1953 Strathisla is one of the oldest Strathisla ever bottled. Veillie in sherry butt barrels for more than six decades, this version remains fresh and fruity despite the spicy and precious wood notes brought by maturation. Impressively balanced, the nose is marked by notes of eucalyptus, walnuts and citrus fruits. The palate is complex, delicately woody and spicy (nutmeg, incense) and fruity (figs, ripe bananas). The finish is pleasantly tannic, with a hint of candied fruit (quince paste) and light tobacco.

Profile: Balanced, spicy. Eucalyptus, citrus fruits, rancio, figs, quince paste, light tobacco.

Appearance : mahogany
Nose : initially, cascading aromas of dried fruit and rich sherry; hints of wood polish and candied fruit combine with an intense note of orange oil; baking spices – clove, nutmeg, allspice – combine before revealing a subtle menthol edge
Palate : initial mature oak notes open into flavours of autumnal berries: blackberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant, and cranberry; crystalized ginger develops while traces of dark chocolate add complexity; aniseed notes remain.
Overall : delightfully balanced fruit and oak finish; nutty notes underscore a subtle but lingering humidor edge.
