Color
Treacle
Nose

Lots of balsamico intermingled with ketjap sauce. Followed by dark chocolate and roasted nuts. Meaty aroma's. Hints of cured ham. It's all very dry with hints of cough syrup, tobacco and old leather. Strange but brilliant nose.

Taste

More on pine and raisins now. It quite waxy with prunes and gooseberries at the background. Cedar wood. Chicken masala as well. Chilli-peppers, camphor and menthol. Some leafy notes. Very intense.

Finish

Long. Bitter almonds and dark espresso coffee. Spices of black pepper and nutmeg. Cloves. 

Comments

Gunnie76 is right, this is a rare (only?) heavily sherried Glenlossie as far I know. And what a colour, almost as dark as Loch Dhu! Takes a whole evening to enjoy in all its aspects.

If I am not mistaken, this is the only Glenlossie on first fill sherry!
In the nose: raisin,coffee,sojasauce.
Taste: wax,oily
