Matured in an ex-Bourbon cask.
Lesser known Speyside distillery Strathisla has been hand picked by the team at Milroy’s of Soho. Matured in ex Bourbon casks and rated 92/100 on the highly regarded whisky ratings site Whiskybase.
Strathisla is an evocative spirit, classicly elegant. Known for being highly sought after for blending and its key role in Chivas Regal, this is a wonderful example of the rich qualities that make it so.
Nose: Flowering bottlebrush and autumn leaves, with soft tones of chocolate and candied oranges.
Palate: White bread fresh from the oven covered with butter and honey, followed by rich vanilla ice-cream with toffee.
Finish: Shortbread, long lingering sweetness tapers to a soft lemon custard.
Milroy’s of Soho, opened in 1964 by Jack Milroy, originally as The Soho Wine Market. The store ran as the local, friendly off-licence selling Beaujolais, Macedonian reds, a small selection of blended scotch and four single malts. This all changed when Jacks brother, Wallace Milroy, joined the business in 1969. the two charismatic brothers grew the whisky collection and helped drive the public knowledge of whisky, to become perhaps the most influential whisky retailers in the world. What started out at 10 grew to 25, then 150; by 1993, when Jack sold the business, Milroy’s stocked nearly 600 single malts, and the shop’s fame was global. For their efforts, we thank both Jack and Wallace for helping promote our beloved sprit.
