Glenlossie 1993 (Cadenhead)

A recent Glenlossie 1993 in the Cadenhead Small Batch series. This sort of Glenlossie is popping up from different bottlers these days and they all seem to offer pretty good quality.

(56,1%, Cadenhead Small Batch 2015, bourbon hogsheads, 492 btl.)

Nose: a green fruitiness, lemons, gooseberries, with grassy notes and some paraffin. Underneath this is a relatively neutral, malty body. Hints of honeycomb. There’s a slightly dusty side as well.

Mouth: punchy, pleasantly tart and citrusy. Oranges and apples. Gets more body after a while, with some almond paste and whitecurrant. Picks up some oak spices along the way, as well as some green tea.

Finish: medium long, with green tea, rhubarb and lemon zest. Hints of nutmeg.

Pretty much in line with other Glenlossie expressions we’ve tried. Chiseled, with decent complexity. But I can’t deny I hoped for a little extra. Around € 110.

Score: 85/100
