Reviews of purchase Strathisla 25 Years Old, in box, 0.7 L
Color whiskey dark gold.
The taste of whiskey a rich, fascinating, very balanced, with notes of smoke, hints of wood, pepper and tar, a long warm finish with oak nuances.
In the full flavor of whiskey felt notes of orange, Armagnac, rum, dark sugar, cake, marmalade, shades of wood.
Whiskey "Stratayla" is especially good in combination with a cigar. Lovely digestif.
