Strathisla is the earliest working distillery in the Scottish Highlands with a history reaching back to the 1700s. It is owned by Chivas Brothers (Pernod Ricard) who made the purchase in 1950 and a great deal of restoration was carried out. The name Strathisla was first used in 1870. It was given up in 1890 but Chivas Brothers re-adopted it following their acquisition of the distillery.

Official Tasting Notes

Nose:  Ripe red apple aromas combine with butterscotch and Seville orange peel. Subtle dried tobacco notes come to the fore alongside banana and a hint of white chocolate. 

Palate: Flavours of vibrant citrus zest give way to rich vanilla pod, balanced by mature oak. Cocoa powder comes to the fore accompanied by demerara sugar and tropical fruit. 

Finish: A medium-bodied finish of lingering lemon peel and subtle white pepper.
