Strathisla 12 Year Old Reviews
Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Nose: Elegant and fresh, with apple and pear notes to the fore, with delicious ripe-fruit perfume.
Palate: Fruit salad and fresh fruits, well supported by biscuity malt and a hint of toffee.
Finish: Very clean and well defined. Perfect aperitif malt.

I am a peaty, smokey whisky fan: Lagavulin 16 or Laphroaig 10 being favourites, Thus when given a bottle of Strathisla 12 I was not expecting much joy: But how wrong I was. This is a wonderful, characterful whisky, with masses of flavour that can compete with the best. Smooth, sweet & fruity, but with enough bite and malt to be fun. Highly recommended.
I was treated to this one this Christmas. After opening and having my first glass, I quickly went straight back to the bottle and poured another. A very smooth, moreish drink. I got fudge on both the nose and palate.
On my first glass of a bottle. I like it. Im no expert, i think ''scotch fan'' comment below has this whisky summed up very well. Lovely nose, fruity taste, and a little oily on the aftertaste. It works, and the design definitely feels to me like they are taking some inspiration from the Japanese market, whish is no bad thing. Looking forward to rest of bottle :) not a going to make to make it onto the favorites list yet, but very enjoyable
A very pleasant malt that is well made and easy to drink. Great drinking and good quality. Its impossible not to enjoy.
It is a good smooth whiskey but the ending is very smokey and bitter but when I noticed it was mad by the shivas brothers I could feel chivas regal in it. So not as smooth as I had hoped but a nice dram anyway
Brilliant stuff,great for sharing with best drinking buddy,5 out of 5
It is a nice single malt to have on the rocks. Loved it and will buy again.
A very pleasant and enjoyable single malt. Now on my short list for future purchases.
Agree 100% with scotch fan, their old presentation was actually 43%, i'm guessing that was a better dram than this new one, although as you say it IS an elegant whiskey none the less, and well worth the money.
A sherried, fruity, soft and elegant dram with oaky undertones and medium length finish. Body is mostly round and oily. A very drinkable and pleasant Speysider, very approachable especially for those who are new-ish to the world of Single Malt Scotch. Great job with the new packaging, this hidden dram should get more attention this way. One cannot, however, help to think what if this was bottled at 43% without chill-filtration and coloring.
Welldone repackaging, always have loved the whisky but now it is having a great presentation!
