Entitled 'A Two Way Street', its a 23yo Speysider from a refill ex-bourbon hogshead
N: A funkier nose that the Glen Moray with lighter, more estery notes. The wood is understandably more subdued by comparison. To the fore are the sugary soft fruits, a little plimsole, oily/tar, tamarind hay, oxidised [light] lemonade, damp barley with equally damp bracken & moist foliage, a touch of peat/farm and touch of lemon balm.
T: Ok, its going in 'that' direction. We are talking of a sugary-sweet dram with fruity confectionary and a light vegetal/coppery funk. It's similar to a Clynelish i have currently open, though thats even more straight ahead on the sugar front. There's then a little vegetal sweet cacao becoming waxy. The yummy concoction is wrapped up in an equally desirable mouthfeel.
F: Vegetal confectionary funk. Waxy raisins with a fruity tannic chew and a very light touch of raw chocolate. Like the Glen Moray, there's a long finish. There's a finale of newly-picked sweet garden peas.
C: I just realised i had this before, last month in fact when I had a similar reaction to this Glenlossie, namely i liked it immediately and again 'over thinked it'. [Again], its a very good dram and im tempted to get a bottle as its terribly comforting [oh, so English].
