Insider knowledge: Strathmill 1996 - Managers Choice whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Strathmill 1996 - Managers Choice whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Almost creamy aroma, notes of vanilla, creme brûlée. Taste is very powerful (partly due to 60% alcohol!), reminiscent of my first tastes of talisker, but with none of the smoke, quite rich and big flavour in the back of the mouth. Very complex!
