Strathisla 1970 Vintage Speyside single malt Scotch whiskey. Matured in a first fill sherry butt and bottled by Gordon & MacPhail.
Nose: A subtle burst of rum and raisin, with a defined malty nose. Hints of rich brown sugar and a Christmas cake edge linger. Sweet creme brulee influences develop.
Taste: Hints of festive spices - mouth warming, some marzipan, almonds and a burst of stewed fruits. Smooth and very enjoyable.
Strathisla Distillery was founded in 1786 and is one of the oldest working distilleries in Scotland. Strathisla Distillery was built on the site of a brewery on the banks of the River Isla in Scotland’s Speyside whisky region. Now equipped with two pagoda roofs over the old malt kilns, classical stone walls and slate roofs, a water wheel now catching your gaze from the front wall and pulling you into the splendid heather garden of this iconic Scottish distillery. Strathisla Distillery welcomes visitors at the distillery visitor centre where tours of the distillery are available. Strathisla Distillery participates in the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival.
