Strathisla 12 year old

Aged: 12 years

Colour: golden brown

Strength: 43%

Best for: nosing in the drawing room while being fitted for a new suit

Nose: rich and oaky with dark fruits, lemon and notes of caramel

Taste: full, fruity and creamy with a soft nuttiness. Softer in the mouth than it is on the nose, yet in a good way. Aftertaste vanishes too quickly though

Verdict: a big nose with a refined and subtle palate are crowned with… a rather flat aftertaste. Like discovering the high class escort you’ve just paid thousands for is a glamour model from Chelmsford. After all the initial excitement you can’t help but feel ever so slightly cheated.
