STRATHISLA 65 ans 1953 Private Collection Gordon & Macphail


Bottled at 43.5% in the Private Collection range, this 65-year-old Strathisla 1953 is a rarity and among the oldest Strathisla ever bottled. Aged in a sherry butt cask for over six decades, this version remains fresh and fruity despite the notes of spices and precious wood brought by maturation. Impressively balanced, the nose is marked by notes of eucalyptus, nuts, and citrus fruits. The palate is complex, delicately wooded and spiced (nutmeg, incense) and fruity (figs, ripe bananas). The finish is pleasantly tannic, with a hint of candied fruit (quince paste) and blond tobacco. Magnificent!

Tasting Notes

: 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 flavors of autumnal berries: blackberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant, and cranberry; crystallized ginger develops while traces of dark chocolate add complexity; aniseed notes remain.

Finish : Delightfully balanced fruit and oak finish; nutty notes underscore a subtle but lingering humidor edge.
