Glenlossie Distillery built in 1876 is owned by Diageo and contributes to most of the company blends.
Since the 1920s it’s been closely associated with Haig’s. Glenlossie remains fairly unknown to average single malt drinkers but is highly regarded by blending companies; in fact the blender’s list from 1974 describes it as “top class” along with another 11 single malts. The Flora & Fauna release is the first official bottling of Glenlossie and in our knowledge Diageo has no plans for promoting that single malt.
Nose: fresh, malty and slightly earthy, breakfast cereals, lemon grass, vanilla, apples, gooseberries, green oak and fading whiff of smoke.
Palate: light, malty, butter toast, honey, vanilla, traces of aniseed and pepper, light oak and delicate fruity notes.
Finish: medium long, oaky and spicy with hints of vanilla.
