A creamy, thick 12 year old single malt from the Speyside distillery, Strathisla.
The nose is rich and of good body. Some notes of wood oils and resins, rubbed petals, winter spice and cereal sweetness. There are notes of marmalade and hints of bourbon with a thick creaminess. The palate is thick and full. There are notes of thick cream and honeyed raisins. Sultana notes emerge with a little Madeira and mixed peels. The oak develops into the finish, which is fruity and spirity.
A new and unexpected pleasant experience
Wonderful taste. simply you must try it!

I've been a Scotch drinker for almost 50 years (Chivas and Johnnie Walker)and have occasionally sipped a single malt, here and there. My dear sister just gave me a bottle of Strathisla 12, on the occasion of my 68th birthday and I must say that it is a wonderful drink. I don't claim to be an expert, but I do know what I like and this is it -- sorry, Johnnie, but I've been spoiled.

Great taste and value for money
I am really enjoying this flavorful malt. There is a lovely spiciness combined with a smoothness that I really enjoy. I add a little splash of club soda instead of water to open it up. It is very satisfying.

Lots of flavor without being harsh
I am enjoying my first bottle of this gem. The lovely oakiness gives it a depth of flavor without being harsh. An initial burst of flavor with a long finish. Very light on the sherry, which I greatly appreciate.

I am no expert - but of the malts I have tasted this is certainly the smoothest and the one which I will recommend to all serious whiskey drinkers - but no ice please just straight

Hidden Single malt Gem in Scotch Whisky
GODFATHER of Single malt whisky -except price and recognition.This is my first whisky to start as single malt from Blends and then I was exploring Glenmorangie, Glen Moray & Dalwhinnie.
I recommended this product to couple of people in QV none of the customers are known to this wonderful product , they mentioned me about the price.
An example and a class of Peaty whisky which is not harsh. It's a delicacy for a get together-BBQ,Indian food & with spicy popcorn and a solo single malt whisky collector.
Strong Nose like Burnt Black coffee, liquorice whisky.
Tastes like sweetened honey blended with Vanilla.
A whisky takes you to Scotland every sip and its my 3rd bottle.
Needs a drop of cold spring water or a spoon of crushed ice in very small quantity(half a coffee spoon) just air the whisky
If you love single malt and want the feel of Chivas regal with Black label in a proper single malt version here is it.
