Glenlossie 17 – That Boutique-y Whisky Company.

Founded in 1876 by John Duff  the distillery is today under ownership of Diageo and shares its grounds with sister distillery Mannochmore..

With a capacity of around 3.7 million litres of alcohol per year the distillery is equipped with one stainless steel full lauter mash tun, eight larch washbacks and 3 pairs of stills.

Although the majority of the whisky produced is destined for the blends that Diageo produce,  a small amount does find its way into the single malt category and although there are not many official bottles released there are a few being released by the independent bottlers..


Todays review is for this Glenlossie 17 year old released by That Boutiquey Whisky Company..

Bottled at 48.4% this Glenlossie 17yo is of course all natural colour, NCF and is batch #3..

Nose.. Floral and sweet.. This starts off with some fresh blossom notes before wandering into a little orange peel, freshly peeled apples and freshly cut grass notes.. A rich vanilla, caramel aroma mixes with soft coconut and gentle spices..

Palate..  The sweetness continues into the palate with gentle spices, soft fruits and some subtle oak notes which round this off nicely.


Finish.. Soft spices and gentle oak..

Thoughts.. This is my first Glenlossie and it is certainly a nice soft, light dram that is perfect for those summer evenings, the gentle spring cedar really compliment the floral notes with the sweetness being the cherry on top..

    Sorren, I like the way your article read so honestly, and I might add, refreshingly so.

    I imagine from perusing some other entries that you must be a boon to the distilleries with whom you work at festivals etc. I feel certain that should our paths cross that you would lead me confidently through a sample or two.
