    Tasting Notes by Adelphi;

    1 of only 215 bottles from cask no. 3779Glenlossie Distillery was doubled in size in 1971 when Mannochmore was built next door, and connoisseurs look for bottlings from ‘the old distillery’. Not only was this cask filled before the expansion, the whisky was made when Glenlossie still had its own floor maltings. The cask itself is a hogshead, and has given the whisky a rich amber, coppery, hue. The first nose is wonderfully fruity – tinned peaches and mandarins – surprisingly fresh for its age. There is more than a hint of oak, fresh sawn, with Bourbon notes, but the only indication of advanced age is a scent of Manilla envelopes and coated card. The flavour at natural strength is very sweet and soft. Water does not alter the aromatic profile, but changes the flavour dramtically – still fresh and clean, but now mouth-drying and somewhat mouth-cooling (like oil of cloves, especially in the aftertaste), with plenty of fresh oak and vanilla. A taste of the 60’s?
