A complex 1960 vintage from the Strathisla distillery, this was bottled by Gordon and MacPhail having been matured in a first fill sherry butt. This is described by the producers as a "Full-bodied Speysider".
The nose is quite well-sherried and full. Notes of cut herbs and mixed fruits. Juicy esters develops with notes of butterscotch and banoffee pie. The smoke plumes gentle with rubbed petals and sherried raisins. The palate is of good-body with some notes of sultanas and a good cereal sweetness with solid barley sugars. There are good charred oak notes with a heavy smoke. The finish is long and developing with wood smoke rising.
