    This Glenlossie is a really heavy sherry bomb in which a balance of spicy wood tones and dried, sweet fruit flavors has formed. The subtle sharpness gives this malt a special touch. Still stick the heavy walnut flavors under the tongue! Wow ... yeah, this Glenlossie tastes great!
    • Nose
      Nuts and roasted almonds rise while the glenlossie rests rust-brown and intense amber in the glass. On the glass wall, long drops pull their paths back into the glass relatively quickly. Roasted aromas and dried berries mingle with the nutty nose, dark orange aromas mingle with a hint of PX sweetness, intense and fruity vineyard peach comes along. Apricots flash, but are immediately suppressed by the intense peach and orange notes. A barely perceptible note of sulfur dissolves from the fruity nose, sour cherries and a small portion of caramel allow me to forget the discreet sulfur right away. The peach flavor and the dried berries fight for the legacy, the alcohol is wonderfully harmoniously integrated despite 59%, the fruity peach flavor now turns right and now dominates the nose extremely and powerful.
    • Taste
      Dark yet sweet PX flavors dominate the first sip. Spicy wood elements mix creamy with dark and dried oranges, sweetness plays with the extremely dominant fruit flavors. Toasted aromas mingle with the spicy wood tones. Slowly a wooden sharpness sets in and dominates the taste from now on. A pinch of black pepper heats the sharpness in addition, a touch of salt lays on the tongue, the woody flavors become tart, darker and drier. Old walnuts mix with the interesting woody notes, the sharpness gradually fades and leaves a tart wood-nut mixture on the palate.
    • Finish
      The tart wood-nut blend of taste dominates the beginning of the finish. Dried berries mingle with the wood, which becomes spicier again, and the delicious flavors in the mouth are creamy. While the finish slowly fades away, the dried, sweet berries mix again with the salty and subtle sharpness and the harsh wood tones. An intense walnut aroma dominates the end of the departure.
