From our casual Scottish correspondent
and guest taster Angus MacRaild
Two Glenlossie
I’ve been doing lots of rather long and silly tastings recently on these pages. Let’s try to redress the balance with a humble pair of what should, theoretically, be perfectly pleasing Glenlossies. 


Glenlossie 26 yo 1992/2019 (50.5%, Filmnik No5 ‘Scent Of A Woman’, cask #3502, hogshead, 263 bottles)

Glenlossie 26 yo 1992/2019 (50.5%, Filmnik No5 ‘Scent Of A Woman’, cask #3502, hogshead, 263 bottles)
‘Scent Of A Woman’ relates to the film, not a tasting note. Colour: straw. Nose: slightly dusty to begin then hints of forest floor, white mushrooms, dill and some rather yeasty sourdough characteristics. Nice but perhaps a little simple and plain. Some very naked cereals lie underneath. With water: gets greener, grassier and gives up notes of chlorophyl, Barbour jacket and dried oregano. Mouth: more sourdough, white pepper, some lemon juice and a tad prickly on delivery. Touches of milky tea and a slightly hint of cardboard as well. Lots of damp grains, moss and plain cereals too. With water: slightly sooty, some dried herbs, wet leaves, more peppery notes, green tea. Nice, honest malt whisky. Finish: a tad short and crisp with some appetising dryness. Comments: Straightforward and easy, if a tad simple. I preferred it with a water. 
SGP: 441 - 81 points.



Glenlossie-Glenlivet 24 yo 1993/2018 (53.6%, Cadenhead Single Cask, bourbon hogshead, 240 bottles) 
Colour: light gold. Nose: a richer and pleasingly fat style. Lots of juicy clean malt, gingernut biscuits, cut grass, olive oil, yellow flowers and freshly baked pastries. Perhaps some have a few dollops of custard lurking within. Also some nice easy orchard fruits, some apricot, soda bread and calvados. With water: gets increasingly lemony - limoncello and rubbed lemon peel - and introduces notes of hawthorne, brown bread and some cashew nuts. Mouth: fresh butter with chopped parsley, sunflower oil, pumpkin seeds, lemon and poppy seed cake, matcha and cornflour. Some sweet gristy notes as well. With water: easy, straight, fruity, nicely cereal-forward malt whisky. No one will write it a love poem but no one would chuck it out of bed either. Finish: medium, again on cereals, lemon peel, tea and digestive biscuits. Comments: Another quaffable 93 Glenlossie by Cadenhead, although I preferred the 2017 bottling quite a bit more (WF 89). 
SGP: 551 - 84 points.
