[March, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied a bottle that I bought for 89 Euro in March, 2016.

[January, 2017]  Together with friends I emptied another bottle that I bought for 89 Euro in March, 2016.

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 87,5 both times.  My notes state the typical fruity and malty Glenlossie taste...

There is no accounting for taste...

From whiskyfun   April 25, 2016
Glenlossie 21 yo 1993/2015 (56,1%, Cadenhead, Small Batch, bourbon hogshead, 492 bottles) Three stars Colour: pale gold. Nose: there’s rather more happening here. Crushed mint leaves, strawberry sweets, pomegranates, old potatoes (and earth), liquorice wood, Bakelite, old electronics (an old radio set)… It’s much funnier, probably not very orthodox, but yeah, it’s got funny sides. With water: porridge, apple juice, lemon. Gets in line. Mouth (neat): strange-ish. Schweppes and honey, blood oranges, mandarins, kiwis, cinchona, Campari… A funny feeling of ‘new plastic pouch’ in the background, but those are now about to disappear anyway – verboten because of environmental issues! With water: easy fruity maltiness. Close to the 1997. Finish: medium, malty. Marmalade on shortbread. Comments: very good, it’s just that once again, you won’t remember this dram for years. Which dram am I talking about? Can’t remember… SGP:551 - 82 points.

Nose

Voll in der Nase mit kräftiger Eiche und viel Vanille. Dann findet man viel Gebäck und Marzipan. Alkohol spürt man überhaupt nicht. Fruchtfracht setzt sich dann durch: Orangen, Feigen und Aprikosen. Im Hintergrund ein schöner Wachston, sehr erfrischend am Anfang, dann wird deutlicher nach ein paar min. Gibt einen eleganten Kontrapunkt zur Eiche. Alter spürt man eindeutig, sehr schön!

Taste

Sehr intensiv auf der Zunge, sehr Clynelish-artig. Eher trocken im Antritt, dann Fruchtsirup und Eiche. Mit Wasser kriegt man immer mehr Wachsnoten und würzige Eiche.
Kräftig und intensiv, was will man mehr!

Finish

Frucht mehr präsent als am Gaumen, Holz, trockener werdend

Comments

Super Malt, Alter spürbar, viel Eiche, dennoch viel Brennereicharakter dabei (Wachs, Fruchtsirup), tolles PLV (89 €).
Verträgt aber kein Wasser m. M. n., wird eindimensionnal mit nur Bienenwachs.

Cadenhead Notes:

Summer 2015 Small Batch

Nose    Initially quite waxy. Grape skins and candle wax. This changes to linseed oil and soft nuttiness as this amazing dram breaths in the glass.

Palate    Initially dry, with some fresh cut wood notes giving way to syrupy fruitiness. Lots of marzipan and red fruits. With a drop of water the sweetness comes to the front.

Finish    Growing raspberry notes, faint rhubarb and then more zesty fruits and some salted toffee. This is a perfect after dinner dram with a rich complex taste.
