  1. Totoro scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    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
      83 83
      Young, spirity, yeasty, fruity, herbal / woody. All kinds of berries (blackberries, raspberries, blueberries...), very juicy, with a sweetish, boozy, rum-like aspect. Blueberry yoghurt, varnish and acetone. 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.
    • Taste
      86 86
      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. Chinese plum wine meets quinine? 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
      85 85
      Fruity acidity alongside the tart / bitter aspects. A whiff of wet, slightly musty wood. Still some salt as well.

    Litchi Wine

    I’m quite sure now that this is not cask strength. Like with the Mortlach 2017 that I tried a little while ago, this Glenlossie from 2007 bottled in the same Carn Mor Strictly Limited series is a vatting of two sherry casks and bottled at the same 47.5%. I like the color very much.

    This is a veritable candy on the nose. A warm stew of all kinds of berries, red fruit and rhubarb. Then a handful of nuts, including roasted hazel nuts. Seasons on candied ginger. A lost mandarin in the back. But fair is fair: the cask completely dominates the distillery character.

    The body is very light, the taste very fruity and sweet. Make that sweet and sour with rum-raisins, grapefruit, gooseberry and a truckload of berries, both blue and red. A somewhat green note appears. Garden herbs? Midpalate a salty edge kicks in as well as something chemical – luckily that disappears just a quickly. Good strength by the way.

    The finish is medium long, sweet on litchi wine – surprising but very pleasant. A slightly bitter end.

    This was only my 15th Glenlossie, but the one with the most sherry influence. Liquid dessert for those with a sweet tooth.

    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.

  7. BLX scored this whisky 82 points Member Junior

    I am a huge Glenlossie fan boy and really wanted to like this. Had great expectations given it’s my first sherried Glenlossie.

    Nose: gentle notes including fig and date, but I feel it’s a bit tame, some sulphur, coconut and red fruit.

    Taste: cherry, slight coffee taste, some fudge, again feels faint.

    Finish: short. Ultimately disappointing however optimistic it will improve over time (just opened). If no improvement i will stick to refillbourbon/bourbon cask Glenlossie as it works wonderfully well with the lossie spirit.

  10. Falang scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    Good - even a great whisky - but in my opinion a bit expensive for what you get. This is a pleaser that really leans towards a standard dram with no -real- identity or character. Good nose with caramel and some vanilla, touch of red apples. Taste is ok, bit dry and oily with musk and red berries. Long finish that evolves slowly.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Great nose with caramel and a hint of vanilla. Touch of red apples, and some berries that seem to give some sourness and maturity. The nose is elegant,... but overall a bit 'neutral'.
    • Taste
      81 81
      Dry in the mouth and oily - a lot to chew on. Something sharp and also woody. I have musk in the palet with berries again. At the back I also have some strawberries and some bitters.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Nice finish, good finish that slowly dies out… Bit sandy.
