View on SMWS
Nose: A vivacious and bright selection of tropicals – mango slices, dried pineapple rings and coconut milk - joined by polished tables, fresh golden tobacco and cashew nuts. A strong banoffee pie aroma develops which sits with rich chocolate sauce, golden syrup and a cup of warmed mocha. The addition of water adds redcurrants and potpourri florals alongside a rather interesting mineral tang of limestone cliffs.
Taste: Surprisingly soft for the ABV, but nevertheless full-bodied and creamy in texture. Pulped bananas, peach yoghurt, wiki and lychee atop of malted milk and chocolate dipped nougat. Polished wood is joined by planed oak for a combination which straddles the boundary of fresh and austere. Dilution adds syrupy peaches and apricots alongside soft cream and meringue.
Finish: Medium to long with white pepper and cooling mint together with steeped tea tannins.
Well-aged Glenlossie rarely fails to impress, and once again, this month’s delivers – pronounced tropical and richness on the nose – supple creamy lushness on the palate. Recommended.
