  1. Koning scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    I finished the bottle a while ago, I just wrote this review based on my old notes and rates. The profile is quite nice, maybe I would rate this well matured bpurbon profile a bit higher than 86 nowadays. I remember it wasn't one for a quick dram, you should take your time to let the flavours reveal itselve.
    • Nose

      Ripe fruits and mature maltiness: hazelnuts, oven-fresh bread and white chocolate. Turkish delight, red grapes, banana, orange, kaki fruit. It's also a bit grassy with fennel and parsley. Slightest touch of smoke.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full body for 46% with an oily mouthfeel. Less fruity now: some bitter oranges and pineapple. It's more spicy and oaky than the nose suggested: laurel, ginger, nutmeg, sesame seeds. White chocolate and hazelnuts return, and quite some malt sugars.

      Slightly fruity with apples and pineapple, but the spices dominate and are joined by mustard now. Some tobaco smoke lingers.

    Blind tasting.
    • Nose
      Fruity, almond paste, citrus, pine apple and some liquorice. Mocca, orange, nuts, cereal and some coconut.
    • Taste
      Very tasty exotic fruits, spices - pepper, caramel, vanilla, oaky notes and some tobacco.
    • Finish
      Malty, nuts and fruity.

    A lovely balanced and subtle whisky. It starts of a little shy but with some warmth it opens up nicely and shows it’s sweet fruity character. A nice dram to take your time with. And to satisfy the modern pairing mania: this pairs very well with the jazzy guitar sounds of George Benson.

    • Nose
      A soft, rich, sweet and balanced whisky with aroma’s of boiled sweets, pear, apple peels, apricot, oak, yeast, subtle metallic tones, field flowers, cinnamon, white wine, honey, grape seeds, grass, subtle tobacco, dried fruits, vanilla, butter and a hint of coconut.
    • Taste
      A soft, subtle, fresh and well balanced whisky with aroma’s of fresh fruits, apple, citrus, butter, sweet ginger, soft salt, cedar wood, soft tannins, herbal tones (laurel & thyme), papaya, pepper, vanilla, forest honey, cereals and malt sugars.
    • Finish
      A medium long and drying finish with aroma’s of oak, citrus, honey, herbal ones, hint of salt, cinnamon and tannins.

  5. glenenz scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    A nice example of the Glenlossie quality they can diliver. A full caracter whisky with the flavours of caramel, apricots, nutty flavours with a spicey kick on the background. 

    The taste is full, entertaining and keeps you wondering why this distillery isn`t in your favourite list, 

    Really recomended!!
