Glenlossie 1975 (Private Stock)

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in Glenlossie

This is probably my favourite label by The Whisky Agency. While you’re often seeing lots of similar casks being released at the same time, the best casks are often bottled in the Private Stock range. But they’re usually very hard to obtain.

 

 

Glenlossie 1975 Private StockGlenlossie 38 yo 1975 (46,6%, The Whisky Agency ‘Private Stock’ 2013, bourbon hogshead, 91 btl.)

Nose: at first sight, elegant and easy-going, medium fruity and quite waxy. Gradually developing a lot more complexity. Meadow flowers, soft herbs, waxed paper, apples, greengages, mint, heather… Some oaky notes. Mouth: sparkling fruits (peach, apple), quite fresh, but with a soft but distinct oaky bitterness in second plan (grapefruit zest). Lemon balm. Berries. A grassy / leafy note too (herbal tea leaves). Finish: long, with citrus, tea and a little bitter oak.

This Glenlossie 1975 is in line with the previous casks by The Whisky Agency (see here or here). Indeed this one has a slight edge, so it does deserve the Private Stock label. Around € 250.

Score: 89/100
