Bottled by Gordon and MacPhail and distilled in 1957 at the Strathisla distillery, the distillery is known for its rich, fruity style of Speyside whisky.
The nose is quite fruity with juicy esters. There are winter berries and rubbed peppermint leaves with eucalyptus oil and toasty wood spices. Some hints of beeswax emerge with a little liquorice note. The palate is quite full and rich. Notes of mixed peels and winter spice. Hints of star anise and dark sugar with a little sherry and a good plume of smoke. The finish is quite long and a touch sweet with a good oak.
