Whisky Reviews for Glenlossie 2007 MMcK

15 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.21 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.
    • Nose
      84 84
      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.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    This one smells nutty at first and then the massive sherry sweetness hits you followed by stewed dark fruits.
    The initial mouthfeel is quite thick & syrupy with just a very faint sulphur taste but its ok.
    This actually gains in power as you go on, this is a good whisky, very good mouthfeel and bags of juicy flavour.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Fruity whisky, the sherrycask influence is obvious, but certainly not a particular sherry bomb. The finish is the most powerful part of this whisky.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Fruity, some berries, raspberry, a little sour note underneath. Prunes as well, some leather, burnt nuts.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Pretty smooth, a little tingling mouthfeel. Fruity, red fruits, berries, pretty full, some honey sweetness. A little spicy as well.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Now some more power, more pungent. Fruity, red fruits, some honey. Middle long finish.

  9. 11insomnium scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    Alcohol is nicely integrated. Compared to Mortlach - Morrison & MacKay 2007, less fruit and sweetness, but more tart wood notes.
    • Nose
      Woody perfume that goes in the direction of furniture polish, sweet, sherry, some fruit and milk coffee
    • Taste
      Spicy, aromatic and tart oak, fruity and sweet, sherry
    • Finish
      Tart oak with a little sweetness
