Glenlossie 21 yo 1993
(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.
