6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.78 points

  1. gallfux did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Nice whisky. Even more waxy notes with water. I really like it. Is that coming from the Glenlossie? Had only two Glenlossie. These were extremely charged with sherry. There was nothing left of the Brennereicharakter.
    • Nose
      Flowerhoney. Toffees. Apple compote with a bit of cinnamon. Peach ice tea. Lemon shower rods. Somewhat wet wood.
    • Taste
      Apple pieces glazed in maple syrup. Lychee. Then comes a wax note. Now the oak comes in and it gets a little spicier. A pleasant tingle on the tongue. Ginger.
    • Finish
      Grapefruit. Green tea. Cinchona bark.

    good whisky--mixing modern with traditional (honey, vanilla but not overly sweet and even slightly herbal).

  3. Fight65 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Typical Glenlossie Character!
    For his 24Y in the barrel, the departure is a bitter disappointment - there is not enough.

    CASK No. 46.55
    SPICY & SWEETRAINDROPS ON A LAVENDER BUSH

    Initial price: 105£

    The downpour had ended and the sun re-emerged bringing with it the aromatic aromas of clean earth and lavender in the spring garden. Lavender moved towards honeysuckle as sweeter notes arose of brandy snaps on lemon drizzle cake with raspberry and chocolate mousse. More juicy fruits burst through with lychee and baked apple crumble with pears poached in sweet Madeira wine. Then cinnamon spice mixed with oak staves coated with ginger and orange marmalade whilst water presented sweeter and juicy notes of vanilla ice cream with caramel wafers. The easy and approachable nature brought us around to earl grey tea with a drizzle of honey before a balanced finish of tingly dry spice.

    52.7% abv for a 24yo gives an estimated annual angel’s share of only 0.63% [Glenlossie’s new make strength is 67-67% SW]. Remember that the so-called angel’s share is necessary and desirable if maturation magic is to occur.

    N: Leather, dunnage, candy-sweet>vegetal tannin=lactose. Later more coppery sweet with savoury>sweet lemon>ade cordial.
    T: Hurray for refills and age. We’ve barley nectar liquid gold right here, a style of whisky that only age and certain casks can provide. Very firm and robust juice following along runny honeyed hay lines.
    F: Sweet clay/white plasticine/grey buckwheat dough, savoury sweet straw and dry lemon. Reminiscent of many an SMWS Strathmill. 
    C: Certainly the best of the night so far, though the Clynelish [which became like this Lossie’s younger brother by the end of the night], wasn’t far behind. Can the Laphroaig up last top the charts?Scores a B[-]
