...which is not the trademark fruity Glenlossie profile and it slept several years too long in its wooden bed so the tannins are very powerful (and too dominant in my honest opinion). As a drinker I would not pay more than 80 Euro for a whisky bottle of such quality, not kidding folks.
The colour is burnished and the nose offers a slightly punchy and rather shy sherry profile with some interesting notes of old cognac. It opens up nicely upon breathing and offers waxy, fruity and honey aromas within a firm wooden setting.
The taste is a balanced setting of sweet fruity-honey and bitter waxy-spicy flavours within a borderline wooden structure which is a little too dominant according to my taste buds. Some water turns the nose punchier but sooths the bitter tannins a little. A bigger splash smooths both, I like this dram best at around 43% abv.
The dram arrives warming but not really coating on my palate with some bitter-astringent moments from heavy tannins. The finish is of medium length and adds no new impressions.
