  1. John Barleycorn did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    SMWS Tasting Notes
    Colour: Lemony gold

    This nose had multiple layers and development phases –
    scorched heather, coal and toolboxes co-existed with fresh-cut limes, orange,
    cherry, apple, cinder toffee, muesli and Pastrami ham. The palate also
    displayed fruity aspects (redcurrants, peaches, plums, ice wine) along-side
    toffee, smoke, ash and ‘charcoal dipped in caramel’; we found it dry but with
    sweetness not unlike dessert wine. The reduced nose became rich and interesting
    – Danish pastries, pork with apple sauce, nutmeg, clove and old leather-bound
    books. The palate still retained that strange smoke, with pomegranate, Parma
    violets and sweetish spice (paprika, fenugreek). The distillery is adjacent to
    the older Glenlossie.
