Part of the Distillery Labels series from Gordon and MacPhail, which gives their independently bottled whiskies traditional (and often very cool) labels. Speaking of very cool, this Strathisla single malt which matured in sherry casks since 1999 is pretty awesome, not only for the stylish font on the label, but the whisky is proper cracking too.
Nose: Floral notes, light and airy, followed by an exotic twist of fruit.
Palate: Slightly nutty and slightly sherried. Pears also sneak in for a cheerful hello.
Finish: Fairly long.
Overall: An easy-going dram, the kind you'd love to sip on a June afternoon.

Researched and presented this bottling at the March gathering of the Loch La Pluie scotch club. Sampled a bottle of Strathisla from 2003 as I did my research ( a few times).I was really looking forward to presenting this bottling even though Jim Murray had reviewed it quite negatively. Well, he was right. This version is not nearly as flavourful or appetizing as the distillery bottling at a much higher price.It certainly wasn't the worst of the six samples we quaffed but we didn't feel we got value for our dollar...in fact $120.00 Canadian.

He's a fruity dram, the nose is a wonderful explosion of bananas, fresh bread & cantaloupe melon but overall just rather soft & unexciting. The nuttiness reminds me of a Palo Cortado sherry, ripe juicy pears make him every-day enjoyable. The finish is very short. If they applied the same attention to detail with the actual product as they did with the label then Strathisla '99 would've be awesome, shame it's just 'good'.
