With its long-established reputation as a distinguished dram, Strathisla 12 Year Old Single Malt is prized by the industry as the ‘connoisseur’s best kept secret’. Founded in 1786 in the Scottish Highlands, Strathisla (pronounced “strath-aye-la”) is the oldest working distillery in Scotland and the home of Chivas. In fact, Chivas refers to Strathisla as the “heart” or “core” malt of its blends... the quiet malt in the Chivas Brothers stable.
On the nose, it is fragrant with citrus (orange peel), flowers (freesia), spice, and a hint of cream-filled choux pastry. Water pulls out more of the weighty malty notes. Great momentum in the mouth with cranachan, soft baked fruits, fruit cake, syrup, apricot and malt. It dances on the tongue with a finish that bursts into life. Full in the mouth where rich malt makes a statement. Well integrated oak. Another wisp of smoke in a long finish. A rich and fruity single malt with a complex array of hay-like aromas and a mellow nutty sweetness.
