  1. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2004]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 555 that I bought for 99 Euro in October, 2004.

    [December, 2011]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 701 that I bought for 102 Euro in September, 2004.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90 both times.  Pls. see note below.

  2. hs305 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    [December, 2011]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.

    In
    my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90.  My
    notes state a rich and mellow sherry profile with all the relevant aromas and flavours one can think of (see Serge's review below).  The finish is long and a little bit drying (but not too unpleasantly).  I liked it very much...

    Serge said:

    Glenlossie 17 yo 1973/1990 (40%, Antica Casa Marchesi Spinola) Colour: dark amber. Nose: quite expressive at such low strength, starting rather elegantly, with a little nutmeg and cinnamon but also a lot of sherry. Big chocolaty notes and lots of raisins (Corinth, Smyrna). Notes of old fortified grenache and then pemmican, heavy wet pipe tobacco and armagnac-soaked prunes. Goody-good I must say. Mouth: I had feared this would be weakish but it isn’t at all. Good, very chocolaty attack, with the sherry upfront and notes of coffee-schnapps. Right, schnapps-coffee. And the same raisins and prunes. Gets just a bit drying and tannic, especially at the finish which is rather long but a little bitter and too dry. Not sure there’s much distillery character here but the sherry is very nice. SGP:433 – 86 points.

  5. wheatfield scored this whisky 75 points Expert Junior

    Copper pour. Nose is musty with a kind of flat, sweet sherry. Mouth is in the vein of strawberries, musty oak, faint chocolate, buttering toward the finish and then mostly sweet, cupcake-y. Overall impression is of strawberry-glazed cupcakes with an artificial, very sweet glazing. Some light funk that I'm finding in older sherry cask whiskies. This approaches being good, but it's too sweet, too flat, too muddled for me to really enjoy.
