  1. MaltMartin scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    Very complex but also juicy Glenlossie.
    • Nose
      Fruity; oranges and tangerine. Delicate oak and sweet barley. Also some cardboard. Quite complex though.
    • Taste
      Clean with beeswax smoothness. Maltiness with a spicy edge of pepper and nutmeg. Some lemon. Cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long and warm. Bitterness later on.

  2. St. Pauli scored this whisky 83 points Connoisseur

    The nose is the best part, the rest is somewhat dull. wood, wine and spice. Cereal notes are complemented by dried fruit (especially sultanas), leather, vanilla, wooden planks and nutmeg.

  4. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The average score is too low in my opinion. The finish and especially the great nose deserve more than that.
    • Nose
      Leather, lime, gold kiwi, toffee, beeswax, mocha, apple, hazelnut, orange, fig and bramble. A nice, mature nose.
    • Taste
      Toffee, lime, orange, mocha, beeswax, pepper, nutmeg, blueberry, almond and dark chocolate.
    • Finish
      Toffee, blueberry, mocha, orange, dark chocolate, almond and smoke.

  5. glenenz scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    I found this whisky for € 58.00 so price / quality topper. From the beautiful series of the Gordon & Macphail Reserve so it can hardly go wrong. Smell: full, waxy, fruity and ,, old style ,, I like it! Taste: the full and fruity waxy character stays intact. Vanilla, yellow fruit, light cinnamon. Finish: reasonably long and with nice interesting bitterness without being disturbing.

  7. I_SPEY scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The nose has a very nice aroma, with oranges, leather and wax; the palate has oranges, ginger(hummm) and chestnuts, the finish is quite long, nice with notes of fruits and honey. I like this dram a lot!
