Whisky Reviews for Glenlossie 1997 MBl

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.75 points

  1. larswehmeier scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    An elegant mature malt with an interesting combination of fresh nose and ripe taste.
    • Nose
      First, fresh and fruity. A lot of peach. Then he becomes a bit mineral and then shows some wood. Finally, it becomes sweeter again with fine vanilla and a touch of cocoa. Elegant impression in the nose.
    • Taste
      Velvety texture. Mild but spicy start. Tastes more mature than the fresh impression of the nose. Chocolate pudding. Some oak. Slightly tart on the palate, but still pleasant. Pinch of cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Long. Pleasant residual sweetness. Some coffee.

    Good barrel selection with a great whisky, which is not bottled so often. A single cask whisky for about 70 €, which is absolutely cheap. It is nice that the Glenlossie has many different notes in the nose and in the taste, even if he does not seem complicated drinking.
    • Nose
      Great fruity notes immediately rise in the nose. Juicy peach, mandarins. Some red apple. Not quite ripe plums. Add a light scented touch, subtle fresh bourbon vanilla and finely integrated caramel and oak at the back. Very mild, harmonious impression.
    • Taste
      Pleasant mouthfeel. The fruits are no longer so present, but rather notes of sweet pipe tobacco, pleasant oak and cocoa on warm vanilla pudding. All in all, more "set" notes. In the end, some honey and bittersweet or mocha and a hint of cinnamon.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium to long. A light sweetness combined with fine oak and bitter almonds.

    N-
    Rounded earthy and vanilla with parsley, oat meal and toffee. Alluring
    corky and decay notes lurking at the background, damp wood.

    P- Doesn't live up to the nosing, present of caramel and honey on spicy coating, medium texture and ok, just ok.

    F- Smooth, medium length with sour fruits and sweet spices remains.

    — at The Whisky Bar, Kuala Lumpur.
