Feast your eyes upon this Strathisla 35 Year Old single malt whisky. Part of Gordon & Macphail’s Private Collection, this Speysider was distilled back in June 1985. It matured for the full 35 years in a refill bourbon barrel, and was bottled at 57.8% abv. Brought up in April 2021, this Strathisla is a yield of just 104 bottles, each one arriving in a unique hand-blown crystal decanter.
Expect the aromas of orange peel, cigar box, butterscotch, floral notes, red apple, and banana to arise. The palate has a certain lemon zestiness to it, along with oak, vanilla, velvety chocolate, and sweet tropical fruit. Expect this citrus note to linger in a long, fruity finish.
