STRATHISLA 65 ans 1953 G&M 43,5%

Single Malt Whisky, Scotland / Speyside, 70cl, Ref: 56302

Bottled at 43.5% in the Private Collection range, this 65 year old 1953 Strathisla is one of the oldest Strathisla ever bottled. Veillie in sherry butt barrels for more than six decades, this version remains fresh and fruity despite the spicy and precious wood notes brought by maturation. Impressively balanced, the nose is marked by notes of eucalyptus, walnuts and citrus fruits. The palate is complex, delicately woody and spicy (nutmeg, incense) and fruity (figs, ripe bananas). The finish is pleasantly tannic, with a hint of candied fruit (quince paste) and light tobacco.

Profile: Balanced, spicy. Eucalyptus, citrus fruits, rancio, figs, quince paste, light tobacco.

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : mahogany
  • Nose :  initially, cascading aromas of dried fruit and rich sherry; hints of wood polish and candied fruit combine with an intense note of orange oil; baking spices – clove, nutmeg, allspice – combine before revealing a subtle menthol edge
  • Palate : initial mature oak notes open into flavours of autumnal berries: blackberry, blackcurrant, redcurrant, and cranberry; crystalized ginger develops while traces of dark chocolate add complexity; aniseed notes remain.
  • Overall : delightfully balanced fruit and oak finish; nutty notes underscore a subtle but lingering humidor edge.

The brand

The Strathisla distillery is one of the oldest operating distilleries in Scotland. Founded in 1786, it was for a long time the property of William Longmore, before being acquired in 1950 by James Barclay, an important figure in the Chivas Brothers company. Strathisla has been at the heart of the famous Chivas Regal blend ever since. With its magnificent buildings, including its working water wheel, it is the perfect ambassador for the Chivas brand, although sadly versions of its single malt are now released all too rarely. Strathisla is therefore better known under the Gordon & MacPhail semi-official label – Strathisla-Glenlivet Distillery – with this family-run, independent bottlers even acting as the sole bottler and distributor of this emblematic Speyside malt in the 50s and 60s.

Merchant

This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

Selected by the directors of Gordon & MacPhail, the whiskies that make up the Private Collection all present exceptional quality and character. These rare, vintage single malts are usually from the top distilleries (Caol Ila, Glenlivet, Longmorn etc.), and are presented in very limited, sometimes totally unique bottlings. “Decades” is also part of the Private Collection range; this consists of six bottlings of Glenlivet, one per decade from the 1940s to the 1990s.
