Something of a rarity given that, to this day, about the only official Glenlossie remains Diageo's Flora & Fauna bottling. Finished in a Ruby Port cask, the nose presents an interesting medley of dried fruits and bitter dark chocolate leading into an expansive, mouthfilling malt with a chocolate box of flavours. Suggestions of choc-orange confectionary, Monte Carlo tea biscuits and hints of rose wax combine with something vaguely herbal at the finish. On the sweeter side, but balancing spices maintain vibrancy. Late port fruitiness. 53.9% Alc./Vol. Non chill filtered. 301 bottles

Notes from the bottlers... Nose: Very comforting and warming with notes of chocolate raisins, praline and sherry trifle. Fruitiness emerges in the form of juicy oranges, apple turnovers and a touch of chamomile. Palate: Very rounded and the comforting feelings continue in the mouth. Slightly oily texture carrying notes of toffee, caramel and gingersnaps, all held together by a wrapping of spiced mixed peel. Finish: The citrus character returns and evolves to be more floral than before. Notes of vanilla, lychee and orange curd eventually fade to leave a sweet spice and an oak char impression.
