Whisky Reviews for Glenlossie 2007 MMcK

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.47 points

  1. Totoro scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    The sherry hogsheads bring massive red-berry fruitiness but few nuts and/or spices and pretty much dominate the experience. The Lossie DNA only really comes through on the palate.

      Young, fruity, yeasty, herbal / woody. All kinds of berries (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries...), very juicy, with a sweetish, boozy, rum-like aspect. Blueberry yoghurt and varnish. All in all, rather simple. Doesn't really evolve once it's in the glass, either. A splash of water tones down the cask influence and coaxes out the distillate. There's something astringent and tart in the background, and it seems interesting, but the sherry hoggies pretty much smother it.

      Doesn't need water per se; good drinking strength. Sweet-and-sour on the palate, again very juicy. The berries are still there, along with some dark honey and a soft herbal / mossy impression. On the palate, the tart / chalky aspect that the nose only hinted at becomes more present. The spirit persists with some intriguing bitters, and a lovely salinity at the death (it's Lossie alright). Pretty simple (and a bit thin), but also pretty enjoyable.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Fruity acidity alongside the tart / bitter aspects. A whiff of wet, slightly musty wood. Still some salt as well.

      He has a note that is quite penetrative and that I don't like at all.
      With a few drops of water, this will decrease a bit, however, then it will lose its taste.

      Fortunately, I don't find the strange note from the nose here.
      Unfortunately, with water it loses its taste significantly in my opinion.

      I like it quite well without water. Tingling on the tip of the tongue, fresh orange, some red fruit and a little white pepper.
      Overall, round and easy to drink with no protruding edges.

      Here, too, much nicer without water
