  1. Totoro scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Considering my expectations for a 24-year-old, ex-bourbon Lossie, this one's a mild disappointment, especially on the palate, which is way too sour. Nose & finish won me over in the end.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Starts off very inconspicuous. Hello, anybody home? Some barley and hay, perhaps some apricot, and that's it... for now.
      [...adding water...]
      Hm, curiously, it's now getting more grassy, tart and acidic, not sweeter as expected.
      With a lot of patience, you actually get a sense of Glenlossie's weight – there's an oily charcoal note emerging after about 15 minutes after adding the water. Now the titular sauna vibe also makes its appearance, with dry, parched oak staves. More and more creaminess, even some shy waxy notes, after 30 minutes. Getting very nice now, but boy, this is a shy one.
      Around 86 points initially; 89-90 after a good long while.
      P.S. Judging from the nose, I expect the palate to be quite sour.

      Yup: the sourness is there for sure, in a highly astringent variety. Makes your gums contract... Not ideal, if you ask me.
      Nice body, still, as is usually the case with Lossie, and the heavy, weighty character of the distillate can be gleaned in the background. But otherwise, this remains very much on the mineral / tart / sour / bitter side of the spectrum.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Zesty citrus and cask char, not much else – initially, at least.
      It's a late starter in this department as well: After 5-10 minutes (and with progressive sips), you start to get a sense of the age. Now the wood comes to the fore, and the oily GL character makes its presence felt.
