    Card Players’ Whisky Pur Sang

    Glenlossie from the Speyside produces almost exclusively for the blending industry. You can count official releases on one hand (litteraly, there are 5). Hence this malt is not so well-known with a larger audience. Independent bottlers, however, are quite fond of Glenlossie. Hart Brothers released this 13 Year Old in 2012.

    The nose is very fresh and summery on floral elements, lime juice, a truckload of vanilla and pineapple cubes. Very sweet. Add a hint of almond oil and a touch of oak. Very innocent, but ideal on a warm summer night.

    It is still very sweet upon arrival, but also a touch piquant. I get some ginger, pepper and quite some baker’s spices. That makes it drier than anticipated. Caramelized lemon parts, gooseberries, vanilla… it even turns somewhat creamy. A bitter touch of oak lurks around the corner, but the sweet fruit keeps things in check.

    It lingers quite a bit, actually. Nice, albeit quite dry finish.

    On the nose, this is very easy going, but on the palate, it is a bit muscular… in its genre, to be sure. Card players’ whisky pur sang. With a price tag of only 55 EUR, this is a good deal.

    A rather fresh and summery start. Loads of lemons and their flowers. Vanilla, vanilla and a little more vanilla. Very pleasent, yet delicate composition. I also get fresh malt in a tin box, if that makes any sense? How about chalk and whiffs of almond oil. In the far background I find some chicken broth as well. The taste is light and smooth with a hint of oak wood. It’s medium sweet and drying. Nice to see the distillery character dominating. Not overly complex but very well done. Really like the texture better with every sip, some kind of chewy lemon candies for grown-ups. Keeps improving. Now I get peaches and cream! By adding water we break the concept. There is some spirity notes and the fruitiness goes away. Lets hope the taste has gained some…Sweeter but lighter. Becomes quite sour and bitter, water is not recommended. Stick with the above, much better. The finish is long and drying with a nice cask flavor lingering. What’s to say: There will be a place in my Hart for these Brothers…Good work!
