The nose is meaty and well balanced. Smooth, malty, with a hint of peat and a little citrus. Fragrant but solid.
The taste is smooth, woody and vanilla sweet with sherry notes and just a hint of spice. Gently dries the mouth. Not as meaty as the nose, but still fun.
The finish is decent, full of oak, with spicy overtones and a hint of peat.
This was a surprise gift from my wife. I hadn't heard anything about the Strathisla distillery, but I was pleasantly surprised. Very smooth and meatier than you expect.
