I have a love/hate relationship with Speyside whiskies. Many of the ones I've tasted are not according to my tastes, but once in a while I stumble upon as true gem.

Strathisla is one of them. The 12 year old is an expression with a near-perfect balance of smoke and smoothness. From its citrus nose to its palate of dried fruit and the smoothness of the finish, this is a rich whisky that few will dislike.

For me it's a perfect after dinner dram when I'm not quite in the mood for my usual poison, the heavy Islay malts.

Added to my wishlist. This seems like a reasonably priced whisky too.

this is good stuff. I agree, loads of speysides leave me wondering, but not this one.
