The oldest whisky in our selection comes from the oldest Speyside distillery remaining in operation. Strathisla Distillery was founded in 1786 by Alexander Milne and John Taylor and originally was operating under the name Milltown (which was soon changed to Milton). In 1937 the distillery owned by William Longmore & Co. produced fairly peated whisky. In 1950 Chivas Bros. claimed the ownership and Strathisla became a major malt supplier to the company’s blends. The 1937 expression was part of Gordon & MacPhail’s range from the mid 1970s (G&M were licensed for Strathisla single malt releases). It is bottled at 70 proof (equivalent of 40% abv) in a beautiful 26 2/3 Fl. Oz. (0.757 l) crystal decanter. We had no chance of tasting this whisky; the reviewers from whiskyfun.com called it a majestic dram, full of old leather, candied orange zest, pipe tobacco, orange honey and long, smoky, honeyed and orangey finish.
