The older neighbour of Mannochmore (which we will see in the very near future), Glenlossie is a component of the Haig blend. Two years ago, in answer to the increasing thirst for scotch, Glenlossie increased its production to 7 days a week and three million litres of spirit per year. Despite this increase, this “Flora and Fauna” bottling is one of only two official releases, the other being one of Diageo’s Manager’s Choice series. As with most distilleries, though, you can find plenty of other interesting Glenlossies from independent bottlers such as Douglas Laing.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Initially aromatic with meringues and red fruits and a hint of banana and lime. Fading to a soft honeyed sweetness.
Palate: Not as sweet as you’d expect from the nose. Savoury and earthy. Salt and pepper. Full On through to the end.
Retails for around £40-45
