Whisky Reviews for Glenlossie 1993 CA

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.58 points

  1. Willie JJ scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Blending fodder they say. To me this kind of dram gives the lie to that nonsense. Glenlossie is top quality stuff and from a great cask can be magnificent. This is right there in my opinion.
    • Nose
      I love Glenlossie, it's such a summery dram and this one is no different with its mighty bouquet of new mown grass and floral overtones. This particular one has great depth and charm and has in my view spent just the right time in the oak to create an excellent nose.  
    • Taste
      No shyness here either. The grassiness gives intense flavour to some rich crystalised sugars. This is a huge dram.
    • Finish
      Waves of intensity washing across the palate. Remarkably little heat considering the strength. Plenty of spice but it charm and a little grace too.

    A beauty, amazing only 10yo.
    • Nose
      OK, our bottle had 20mls left on it, had been open God knows how long, and had cork flakes floating in it. BUT first Cadenhead Authentic Collection seen in NZ, had to be tried right? Nose was non existant, plastic, maybe the dashboard of a Falcon 500 Station Wagon mid summer.
    • Taste
      Omg, mind blown, this is awesome. What is going on here. New mown grass, floral, crystalline sugars, its huge and wonderful.
    • Finish
      Ahhhh

    [February, 2015]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 73 Euro in December, 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.  My notes state a delicious bold fruitiness and grassy flavours - a perfect summer dram...
