Gordon & MacPhail, Distillery Labels, Strathisla 2006 (700ml)
Gordon & MacPhail, Distillery Labels
Cask: First Fill and Refill Sherry Casks
Bottled as a part of Gordon & MacPhail's Distillery Label collection, this bottle sports a beautiful retro Strathisla label.
Strathisla is the oldest operating Speyside Malt Distillery in Scotland, having been established in 1786.
The bulk of the spirit from Strathisla goes into the Chivas blend so official bottlings are few and far between.
Nose: Fresh grassy notes, chocolate-covered ginger, triple chocolate cookies and apple blossom.
Palate: Fragrant rose leads into lemon shortbread, underripe orchard fruit and a dusting of baking spice.
Finish: Chocolate orange biscuits and rich hazelnut.
