Strathisla 12 Year Old Bottling Note

This is a new edition of the Chivas malt Strathisla 12 year old, a fruity and sherry-rich single malt from Speyside.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Soft oak and hints of candied peel. A little floral character too, with notes of spice and Danish pastries.

Palate: Malty core with notes of sultanas and cinnamon pastries. Allspice, cooked apple and mince pies.

Finish: Long finish. Very fruity.

Overall: A good all-rounder - excellent value for money...

User Reviews of the Strathisla 12 Year Old

Makes a cracking Hot Toddy!

Had this bought for me for Christmas. Very pleasant, one to give a novice as oppose to someone more well versed.

I decided to sacrifice it for a hot toddy one wet chilly January evening. Wow! What a toddy. The cinnamon and spiciness really complements the cloves and lemon juice/peel. Might pick up another bottle as my go to toddy malt.

Should be renamed, Strathisla 12 "The Toddy Malt". Send a cheque in the post Chivas Bros!

Sweet and floral

Love the smell, it tastes quite sweet. I get a bit of fruit in the taste. I preferred it with water as found it a bit hot without. I'm enjoying it but doubt I'd buy another

Really mellow, smooth, moorish.

I don't know what the complaints are about. I am not a novice when it comes to whiskey. Nor do I purport to be some know it all. I usually like strong peaty numbers like Laphroig and Ardbeg. I agree this drop might seem bland to some but I have to say that it is delicious and, having paid £27 for mine at the supermarket, I am very pleased and have just gone and bought another while it's still on offer.

Decent but better out there for same price

I love that people from the distillery and chivas have come on here and rated this the best whisky since sliced bread.
This whisky has a good price point and is pretty unchallanging, and inexperienced malt drinkers will like it, for more experienced drinkers, you may find it bland.

Great Value

Very smooth and flavourful scotch. Highly recommended!

Tasted at the Stathisla distillary in Scotland and loved it

Good whisky for the price point. Think Master of Malt have got the description spot on. Can definitely get the Danish pastry nose!! Have had this bottle for about two years. Just finished it tonight, drinking the last glass as I type. It's worth the money and one for the cabinet, especially if you can get it on offer.

Excellent stuff in low budget

Excellent single malt

My favourite whiskey you can buy in the supermarket. Superb smooth drink.

I bought this in sweden by advice from the monopoly "systembolaget" and i got to say i should have chosen Ancnoc instead of this... The alcoholic taste takes the upper hand of this. Even if there is some tastes the taste of alcohol does it to much on the bad side. I would like to give it a 2 but the price is the only thing keeping me from it. Dont buy this, mainstream shit that shivas have optimized just for the books.

not fantastic

This is good to have in your cabinet among the other whiskies and try it from time to time. Not a favorite one, it Worths its price, it's delicate and smooth but that's all I Think.
You don't get a "wow" taste in the mouth but it tastes better than the balvenie double Wood in my opinion
rating 6 + half Point for the price

Progress did not Trump Tradition

Preferred the previous edition with its 43% content and unique bottle. The new edition is still good value but not sure why they went mainstream in taste and looks.

30th November 2015


Compared to the "old" bottling; they have lowered alc.%, switched from an awesome looking bottle to a clean and boring mainstream bottle... and increased the price... please...

Gran Whisky

Muy bueno. Muy muy bueno.

23rd August 2015


Delicious anytime, but sweeter with more pear and apple after resting in the glass awhile! Amazing finish!

10th August 2015

let it sit

I agree with a previous reviewer, I bought this bottle back in February and I thought it had a little too much bite. After letting it sit for several months I decided to go back to it and am very satisfied with the depth and sherried chacter. Lovely fruit finish.

7th August 2015


Well made. Has respect in Scotland and is the heart of all Chivas. The best highland, speyside ever made.

We think this whisky is very smooth and has a wonderful flavour.

29th May 2015


I like my malt whiskies but have to say am not sure with this particular malt. Bought a bottle yesterday as it was on offer in my local supermarket. Something is definitely missing in the taste compared with other Speyside malts. I will give it another chance hopefully it will improve but I am not holding my breath.

Give it time and you will appreciate

I opened this bottle a d thought it was nice but had a little bite. After letting it sit in my cabinet for 6 weeks I decided to give it another go. I am simply amazed at it's depth now. No bite but tastes of a quality Sherried dram. At this point, it's depth and flavor seem of a 43% abv instead of 40%. Amazing value for money.

19th April 2015

This is my new favorite

A very nice whisky with a beautiful warm finish, quite malty with almost a hint of chocolate

16th February 2015

Well Made

You cannot go wrong with this. Its well made and very pleasant to drink. I buy this regulary ( when the price is right) and always enjoy. Easy drinking and good quality.

Drunk in Norfolk. The whisky capital of England.

Subtle and soft on the pallet. Im no whisky expert but it is my drink of choice and from now on this will be my whisky of choice. Excellent value for money also premium feel in a affordable price range. Thank you

10th January 2015


It's whisky. Other than that it has no stand out character for me and pulls no punches. Ok to have in the cabinet, but I'll be reaching for something a bit feistier most of the time.

A whiskey that grows on you.

Taste is a little overly delicate and light at first, but it certainly develops over time. A very long finish and certainly tasty dram, although there is some residual bitterness.

19th November 2014

My favorite

I also do not like strong smokey scotch. This was very flavorful and smooth. Best 12 year single on the market in my opinion.

24th October 2014

12 year old new edition

Beautiful nose, and love the fruity aroma with hint of apples. I don't like peaty, smoky whisky's, so this is perfect for me, I live in Aviemore at the start of the Whisky's trail and have samples many Speyside and Highland whisky's and this is my favourite so far, it's gets 5 stars!

6th August 2014

Very nice tasting whisky

Very good tasting whisky, worth the money.

27th February 2014

Subtle and spicy

Initial flavours are fairly subtle - develops in to a spicy taste, like cinnamon as mentioned above. Overall nice and smooth - though not my favourite.

Евгений из Украины

Не понравился. Спирт слишком выразительный. Свеженький фрукты, солод, несколько пряный - лучше растворить в бокале кубик льда - больше прорисовывается вкус и уходит спирт.
