Revew #272 – Stathclyde 26yo
Whiskey Network Review #272 | /r/Scotch Review #115 – Strathclyde 26yo, 110.2pf | 55.1% ABV
Nose: Cream, vanilla, honey, baking bread, nilla wafers
Taste: Thin, honey and almond forward. Sort of hot but enjoyable. Not wildly deep, but very creamy, vanilla, honey forward
Finish: Long, a little rough, sweet though and very pleasant.
Overall: This would have made an excellent cask strength summers night porch dram. It’s light, sweet, fairly straightforward and doesn’t try to be something it isn’t. I’m giving this a Rank 6 – it’s not mind blowing but it is pretty good and its really quite fun to try something that’s really getting up there in the years. I know this is grain and not technically malt whiskey but I still wanted to review it, especially since I rather enjoyed it. I don’t know what this cost, but assuming it wasn’t an arm and a leg, I think its a fine dram. If nothing, an enjoyable experiment.
Thanks for reading!
