STRATHISLA 8yo Bot.70's 26-2/3 Fl.Ozs 70°proof Gordon MacPhail - Thistle bottle

Colour: gold.

Nose: we have a very soft, very elegant and maybe slightly evanescent combination of wax polish, old orange liqueurs, tobacco and honey. Then a little more leather, marzipan, vetiver, wormwood and delicately smoked tea and lastly, a very subtle bouquet of flowers such as peonies and old roses. And maybe a faint earthiness (mushrooms). A very noble old spirit that really reminds me of some very old and noble cognacs.

Mouth: starts on bitter chocolate and maybe a wee dustiness, then we have earl grey tea, mint flavoured tea, liquorice wood, cake, speculoos (or gingerbread) and marmalade, but there’s also a little peat and even some salt appearing, the whole becoming rather dry and surprisingly briny.

Finish: short but rather clean, with now touches of lemon on top of the saltiness. A little chartreuse in the aftertaste.
