  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Spicy nose, sherry, but also fruit. In the mouth then delicious sherry, but also a bit of oak, some gum, not very clean, a little dirty, with tobacco and in the end a lot of bitter oak and menthol. A whisky that I like.

    Not very complex, maybe not old enough, but a great experience. Was my first from Glenlossie, but not my last ...
    • Nose
      The color is already great and the initial flavor also. I have not even held my nose to the glass and I can already perceive the wonderful aroma. Sherry and wood are paired there - the way it should be. Reminds me of a Glenfarclas, soft and fruity in the aroma.
    • Taste
      Very strong start, the sherry comes out even more clearly. Then there are also some herbs added. With time, then something bitter, the sweetness vanishes.
    • Finish
      Medium long, rather spicy.

  5. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Very solid and delicious dram, a bit unusual for 1st fill sherry, but that's what makes it interesting and tasty
    • Nose
      Very creamy nose, gentle sherry with vieeeel banana, cotton candy, creamy sweet, hints of smoke and oak
    • Taste
      Slightly alcoholic initially for the 46%, but passes again, very beautiful dried fruit of all kinds, gentle creamy sherry follow with apricot, banana, hint of smoke and spice of pepper and nutmeg, very fruity-fleshy everything, yummy
    • Finish
      Medium-long, fruit and some smoked oak remain, dry-round

  6. Arquebus scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A superlative sherried Speysider. Given 96pts in the Whisky Bible by Jim Murray. What I like about this whisky is the slightly off sweet, fresh mouthwatering quality. The sherry flavours come through but aren't cloying or dominating, creating a very elegant whisky.

    No sherry bomb in the sense of a Glendronachs, for example, despite 18 years in First Fill sherry casks. Here you have rather a very mature, balanced malt but still some rough edges has to offer. Great whisky.
    • Nose
      Creamy sherry, bananas and some pears. Makes a sweet impression, with dried fruit and some milk chocolate. Later, a slight hint of ripe, fragrant apples.
    • Taste
      Mild and very pleasant in the taste, medium-bodied and slightly tingling in the beginning. Then sweet dried fruits, bananas, mild Sherry oak and a very light, earthy spice.
    • Finish
      Gentle but oaky spicy, the milk chocolate mentioned above is slowly turning into dark chocolate. Medium long and very pleasant with dried fruits.
